Ok, I can't decide on a favourite now! I love all of your work, your wolves are awesome, as is your amazing fox, then there's the birds!!! They will all have to be my favourite 😄

That's amazing. I actually thought it was a photograph until I read the description. How on earth did you learn to do this? How long did it take to do just this painting?

I don't know what's more impressive, the wolf or how real the snow looks on the branches. Ah screw it, it's all brilliant.

I can't believe that level of realism... depth... sheer *woah*isness. orz so great
Have you ever made a tutorial (not necessarily for free, I mean, have you maybe published something on your painting process? I would so love to buy a "how to" book by you).

MAGNIFICENT!

I'm one to tends to appreciate, most of all, the compliments of artists whose work I admire.

As a dedicated "photo Realist", myself, and a passionate animal lover, when I see work of this quality, I have to stop and credit the creator of such beauty!
