A collection... the ones I use the most are graphites, charcoals, watercolours, hair textures, airbushes, glows, speckles, water blends, dry blends, finger smudge blends, sponges blends, oils, pastels, oil and pastel blends, inks and pens (a range there of). Most of my work is a long mixture of brushes and not sure one medium or another. The Hare is the rare one where I used just two brushes for it. I used two Spray Can brushes for it, one for the Hare and the other for the snow.

Wow! While they are all good the top picture of the cat is amazing. The detail... the fur makes me want to reach out and touch it!

you found it.....that is brilliant...your work has a personality and you use the word feel to describe your style... it's obvious to me you feel what you create...

Art is all about "Feel". It is an expression of a feeling in a moment, just like writing is or photography. It is all about the "Feel", the "Story" of the moment captured. Written stories paint the scene in your minds eye, art paints it on some form of a canvas (digital or otherwise), photography paints it with light but what we remember about all good art, books, photographs is the feeling behind it. :)

Thank you... :) I have never thought about doing illustrations, it is a unique skill, being able to tell the story that the author wants. Telling the story YOU want is so much easier! lol

Very cool!

Do you use Corel Painter? That's the program I use for most of my digital art (other than Illustrator).

Nooo.... I have heard good things about Corel Painter but have never made the move. I use a small program called MyPaint (http://mypaint.org/about/). It is a lovely program originally designed by an artist, who made it to work especially with art tablets, it has a very simple interface (which I looove) that is just brushes and canvas.

I also use GIMP for those things that MyPaint doesn't do... :)

That cat is gorgeous! I love the detail put into the eye with the shine along the edge. Very, very nicely done.
