Hi Jim Blanchard,
This picture of the bear is terrific. Could I ask how you achieved so many different textures? The post pic is pretty small so I can't get a good look.
You haven't posted in a while so I'm not sure you'll see this hope you do

Hi HangEleven,

Just now seeing your comment, so sorry for delayed response!

I achieve the different textures with a variety of tools: toothbrush ink splatter, stippling with technical pens and pen nibs, and red sable brush work--

Thanks for the compliment!
