Just out of curiosity, where do you get your furs? They are very beautiful.

either from Etsy sellers if i only need a small amount or from Fabric.com, I like fabric.com because they let you buy as little as a half yard and usually have free shipping over $35.

This means just.. oodles to me, Kim. I keep looking at it on my phone and home and work computers and I am continually awed by just how much attention to detail you put into him. I mean... whiskers, the scales on the face and body and ears, the mane, tail, and the way you gave him a kind, warm expression that is spot-on for him. Just... thank you. I am continually amazed by your work, and it means so incredibly much to see this fella brought to "life" as it were by your astounding art. :)

BTW: I posted about it and linked back to you on my Facebook page: [link] Just... thanks. Thank you ever-so much! I am SO eager to see him and hug him in person. :)
