Wooowwww, these are beautiful! The Fuzzball is adorable, and I love the colorwork on the other two! So detailed! Keep 'em coming!
They are all sooooo beautiful!
Just perfect.
BEAUTIFUL!
I love how the light and colors pop on the velour. The zebra is my fav Smiley

Thank you!!

I love both the otter and the kingfisher! The zebra is nice too, but i like the variation in colour in the other two. Always love your style and you never fail to amaze me with your skill to draw fur (and everything else)!

Thank you! I love the way the colours pop with the smaller too, especially the blues of the Kingfisher.

Absolutely stunning art. Outstanding.

Thanks!!

I have just started with pastels and i am far from your mastery. Do you have some favorite brands but not too expensive?

I've built a modest collection over the years, I don't have them with me at the moment so I'll try my best to remember.
A few years back I splurged on a set of 15 Rembrandts, those things are wonderful. They're on the higher end, so pricey, but definitely worth it. Since then I've gathered a few other sets, some by names I can barely find through a Google search, some very common.
But the ones I use the most often are my Rembrandts (thicker, about a cm in diameter), a set of around 12 NuPastels by Prismacolor (sticks, lovely colour and tend to be harder than most pastels) and a set of pastel pencils from a brand that is completely skipping my mind.

Mostly I think its important to start with what you can, and work from there. There are tons of brands out there, just have to experiment. Smiley
