Zebra by xbrightwingx Zebra by xbrightwingx
Finished. It's amazing how long a black and white animal can take to paint XD It's when you come to realize that black and white animals aren't just Black and White that you go, "oh boy..."

but it was fun. He was a learning experience and I'm happy with the way he turned out. ^_^

Yep. Black and white animals aren't that black and white after all. You've done great job with the fur. All the different colors on the white parts. They look very nice and natural.

superb then for sure... my zebra compo [link] turned out to be more of acrylic than watercolor... working hard to do watercolor only .. but.. its tuff to go away from the detailed style and become lighter ..

It's VERY tough. I can't help but load my pieces with detail. Sure you can just take a photograph and have perfect replication, but I think it's true talent when you can PAINT something and make it look so lifelike.

I like your zebra piece :D Very neat how you incorporated the stripes into the entire piece instead of just the one or two subjects :)
