Wow, a beautiful face. I think I like #2, Steve...it has a sort of abstract feel that I find appealing. What an incredibly beautiful animal!

Yes, he is a beautiful creature. I fear my camera and I can not do justice to him. Thank you, Patti.

I like #2 as well, Steve. I particularly like the blue eyes and softer pencil/charcoal treatment. Very striking!

Thank you, Rona. My intent was to go with the B&W, but I followed Patti's suggestion and I am pleased you confirmed it. I attacked this image with great expectations, spent hours playing with them, then awoke today to see I had fallen short of my vision. All part of the creative process I reckon...sigh. :)

Beautiful series, Steve. I like the blue-eyed the best, it gives it a kind of surreal look.

Thank you, Joanna. He seemed surreal in reality. You should have seen his tail! Amazing!

I think you must be part person. If you were a purebred cartoon character, you would have said wike, not like. Have you considered seeking help? You may be suffering an identity crisis. Probably drugs available for it.
In any case, I want to thank you for your kind chirps.

Thanks, Pat! Are you talking to me or the snow leopard? :)
I was more confused than usual when I saw your remark...until I saw this big boy featured in the Digital Darkroom Newsletter. How nice! However, he was passed over for an EP. Go figure...
