The detail in the face is amazing, you captured life perfectly. It looks more in focus than the rest of the painting, like the centerpiece.

Fierce!

Now that's a very nice painting. Although if I may , I would put more shadow details it the painting so that the leopard will be more centered in this masterpiece. .

That is awesome! You have some major talent. Very impressive. The detail is amazing and I can understand the amount of time you had to invest in painting such a great piece.

I can only tell you what I did, which was one of those trail and error situations. I used my most warn out brushes.



I just painted the base colours where it was needed, like the black sport, just plain. I then used those brushes to carefully 'smear' or pull the edges so it looks like hairs. I used the same technique all over the painting, just softly using the warn out brush to blend the colours together in a hair-like way. Sorry, wish I could explain better but English is not my first language. I hope it helps.

And in the ears I just used a lot of Turpentine instead of Paint Medium. It makes the paint mush more runny, and with a very small brush, just 'draw' in the hairs one by one


O, and yes this is Oil Paint

like the same design, but different bird. I'll show you as soon as I'm done.

that is a really good pose. there is a lot of motion and vibrancy in the composition. my only constructive criticism is that you left out (or not enough of) something that possibly could have helped expressed the entire scene a little more; the tail.
it could have been a miss direction or a subtle nuance in the background etc.

but this is amazing work mate.

Thank you ever so much! I have MANY worn brushes and shall try your technique. It makes sense! I have used so many nearly three or four hairs left brushes to accomplish very minute, "picky" and very complicated pictures in the past. Unfortunately my portrait was began on canvas board that warped and developed mold...but I was told about a substance that would get rid of mold that I have not tried yet. I recently lost my middle son whom I was going to give this painting to, but I want to finish it and give it to which ever of my two i have left that wants it most. Thank you for your help. And your English is perfect for me!

Thank you Night
. I started this painting with big bucks in mind, but I don't think I want to sell him anymore. He became a part of me.
