Those are awesome. How long does it take you to do one of those?

Very nice!

longer then it should..and some days are better then others. If i get fixated i would never admit how long..cause it is never about the money only about the art. The little rabbits between 15 minutes and a half hour..the more i get into fur the longer..like grass there is only one way to truly make it look right and that is one hair at a time. Sometimes if everything is going wrong..this is going to sound dopey but i feel like i am "reading" the rock wrong. and start over...dang it that is the fourth mosquito i have killed since i started typing..how in the devil are they getting in!!!! anyway back to topic..i try for what i call believability. If the rock doesn't have a bump for the head and a spine..or if it is too short for a backend no amount of shading is going to fix that. The rest is trying for an optical illusion..trying to make certain areas look raised by highlights and sinking areas that are too big into the shadows. IF nothing else i have learned a great deal about shading and blending color. Nothing improves like practice and doing the same thing a few zillion times is good for me. I am not a quick learner, but i am steady.

I love them all! Do you sell your artwork, smkie? I know that if I saw some of your stuff in a store, I would buy it in a heartbeat! You are WAY talented.

I especially love the grinning cat!
