Cheetah in progress

This is an early stage photo of what I’m currently working on. It’s a quick snap taken on my phone, so excuse its shortcomings! I should really take another photo…

Little Owl complete

The Little Owl is complete. This picture took a lot less time than the previous two, but I suppose that’s hardly surprising given the amount of white space compared to…
