I painted the rest of Scout's body today but I need to adjust the coloring. It seems I have reversed the shading of the red spots. He should be darker near his chest and have lighter red patches on his rear.

Step 2: Painted rest of figure, needs revisions

I am going to try to a "detailed" background. Not a complicated subject but a very elaborate abstract with definate brush strokes. Just like the handleing of scout's coat in this picture, but primarily in greens and blues.

This is Scout. He lives outside & the sun has highlighted his fur giving him a very unique coat. He is the alpha-male of his cat family and I think he is in the mafia as well... but don't let his intense gaze scare you off, he can be very affectionate.

Steps 1 & 2: I completed the sketch and started to paint his face.
 
 
I have spent the last few days finishing that portrait of Caplin Rous, the CAPYBARA. (See post below) His site can be found here: Capybara Madness. This was also my first "human" portrait so I took more pictures to document the development of her face. I think it is a pretty cool progression. I just finished the painting, and the wet paint distorts the final photo, but I was too excited not to put it up. right. now. However, a better image will be coming soon!

Step 2: Corrected the original sketch

Step 3: Laying in darks, this creates the initial facial structure
Picture
Step 4: Big Jump here, but this is before blending in the facial tones
Picture
Step 5: Almost done! Blended the differnt skin tones and started Caplin

Thank you Caplin's family and friends for all your enthusiam and kind words. I should have know Caplin would only associate with such nice people. :D
