I was asked many times how I did the hairs in the ear and in the area between eye and ear - so I will try to answer it here...
First of all I only used masking fluid
for the eye, whiskers, eyelashes and the really white hair in the inner ear. I covered them up in a really early stage and didnīt touch them till the end.
All the other tiny hair are done with MANY MANY
brush strokes and MANY MANY
layers. In the fourth picture you can see that I lightly colored the area underneath... and after that I added all the small strokes in a semi-transparent layers. IMPORTANT:
Let your painting get completely dry between the layers!
The part between ear and eye and the ear itself were the most timeconsuming parts of this painting.
