The original is (c) Paul Dyson, if I can find the image I will post a link of it
This is for my GCSE artist study sheet
Just felt like posting it as it's proberbly one of the best real life pics I've done in a long time....

EDIT: I can't find the actrural image but heres a site showing examples of his work : ... on_11.html

I met him about a year or so ago at a craft festival and his art is stunning and is a great example of what I'm wanting to achieve in my art GCSE though it deffinetly won't be as good ^^ ' He paints in watercolour making the amount of detail in his pics even more impressive o_0

This is a very nice piece of work, Rachel.  I cannot see any major flaws except her back leg and paws, but it still impresive.  ;)  I like how you gave the animal its volume by playing with just the dark spots, 'cause I can see no outlines or you can hardly see them.  And one more thing, I was meaning to ask you.  What are you majoring in?
