Ha, thanks -- hopefully not upset! Or wishing he had Photoshop.

Amazing Wren! Durer would be soooo proud!
Thank you bippidiiboppidii! Yep, Photoshop (with help from multiple photos -- otherwise I would not have grasped just how wrinkly a rhino can get). Then levels and the poster edges filter helped bring out the rhino's details with similar coloration to the fur, for more of a twin appearance. I'm sure you would paint great hares' hairs too if the need came up --you are so prolific.
Wow! Amazing illustrations! Done in Photoshop? My mind is boggled. Awesome awesome awesome.
Sue Ellen, thanks for the wall art decal tip! Foamcore does wonders. I didn't realize you had so many images until I started looking through your collections. Doesn't that Durer Hare painting become a part of you--so mesmerizing. I look forward to trying the backed decal.
Durer's hare has hung on my wall since i bought it for myself when i was 18, and I love your "Durer" rhino companion! I so admire your skill in creating this wonderful painting! .... (SF won't let me creat a new paragraph, so I'm doing it this way:)................................ By the way, I have had great success printing on a decal, and adhering it to foamcore for framing. The artwork shows up well on the decal (whether photos or drawings ---I did my Chinese Papercuts contest entry this way, and I bought Victoria Lasher's beautiful sky photo on decal) and the smoothing spatula does a great job of spreading the decal smoothly on the foamcore. Then the framer can cut it to the proper size with their super-sharp blades.
Thanks, Deb! I have been ordering my swatches on canvas lately, and this batch I decided to try faux suede. The results were amazing! A little furry, and it held details well. I'm beginning to think the fabric could be better for wall hangings than canvas, since it has less sag potential.
Indeed, this is impressive. I can see this on the linen-cotton canvas. Wonderful colors. So beautiful.
Thank you, Rhonda! I used to do more realism but it took so much time; I guess I was having an OCD moment. The two sizes test-printing now will fit on a swatch and a fat quarter, so you're right -- they could be displayed easily with staples around frames, or dowel hangings.
Your attention to detail in these excellent illustrations is impressive! I can see this design being framed and set on display as wonderful wall art!
