Field Mouse in Hand 5

 
The field mouse made his entry into the composition this weekend.  It was a pleasure to work on such a small area of fur.  I had to make sure and keep my eraser sanded, so his light hairs would be tiny, sharp and clean.  Here he was at the beginning of the weekend...
 


 And here he is now...   His foot is the last area to be completed.  I am leaving that until the finger underneath has been rendered.  A background is necessary when creating the light hairs.  :)

I love what you're doing with this series! The detail in the fur and the body parts, in contrast to the person's skin. I really admire how you talked about the structure of the different body parts too. You are very thorough and precise with your work, yet so artistic and creative in shaping a beautiful composition.
