    It's just amazing, you want to learn from your lessons. I just can not put into words the shock of your paintings.

    Wonderful artwork. The black lines would work well using ink.

    Sorry for all the comments. So I just tried a 0 Brush and a 10/0 and all the other small ones, couldn't find a 00, but when I try to paint fur like you're doing, I can't get the fine, perfect, pen like lines like you do. It just comes out as a thick line or like a tear drop, cannot figure out hot to make it thin and fine, otherwise I think I could do this. Does it matter what paint or brushes? I use reeves watercolor paint and Daler Rowney and Fine Touch paint and for brushes I use Royal&Langnickel. Could you please help? Could you email me? [email protected] I'd really appreciate some help doing this and making I could send pictures of my attempted art? Please? Thanks

    And at 2:53, how does that black not just turn into a black glob. When I try to do detailed fur of any color, it all just goes together and you can't see the separate strokes.

    Fantastic. This has really helped me put the finishing touches on my adult themed painting of Nigel Farage and Donolad Trump sharing a special moment. I do lots of political themed erotica, check it out at

    I like the idea of softening the fur with a light wash, I hadn't thought of it. Thank you for posting!
