Second of the day and a huge challenge!!

Well, I know that I don't blow my own trumpet often but I am so pleased with how I managed to colour this image!! I thought after I had bought it, that perhaps I was being rather ambitious, but have genuinely surprised myself just a shame about the quality of the photo, I was losing the natural light. It must be the Copic talents of Wendy and Karen rubbing off on me, but I still have so much to learn!! I think I will be using this image loads more, because I just love his gorgeous face and big paws!!! This card I am entering into a few challenges, the first being my favourite challenge
