Purple Red Panda by phoenixfyre6967 Purple Red Panda by phoenixfyre6967
He is my baby who somewhat looks like he's plotting the destruction of the world and he's adorable and furry and i want to pet him :la:. And he's one of my few pictures that I can look at and feel more overwhelmed with love than annoyance at all the places I made mistakes in. Not to say I didn't make mistakes, but they don't annoy me as they usually do :D

Critiques are appreciated but I'm probably not going to change anything on him because I do happen to be irritated with how much time and effort I spent painting fur.

Reference picture by the way: [link]

And I know that a lot of the shades are a bit off, but the printer messed it up a lot, for example, some of bright white tufts on his abdomen didn't show up in the printed out picture at all.

I really like the colors and vibrancy of the piece. I also like the texture put into the piece. I really like the colors on the branch. I like the traditional look of it. It's an 8 because the fur doesn't really seem to have much of an overall light source.

That's amazing, I can never paint thinly with acrylic paint... acrylic must hate me, or something.

Thanks :D, and have you tried using a thin angled brush? It really helped me with the whole clean crisp and small lines thing. Using a super tiny brush actually didn't make my lines very thin.

A thin angled brush? Hmm, you mean the flat ones? I really dislike the super thin brushes, they never do anything. And when I get like a bunch of paint since it doesn't liek to paint with the normal amount of paint i usually put on it, it comes out like a blob. xD

Well, not an eye liner brush, but the angle yes. And I know, it doesn't get enough paint on it to work right.
