Wow, absolutely stunning work! I love to see leatherwork pushed to the point of realism that you've achieved!

As I mentioned in the gallery image:  Unbelievable.  Nothing less.  True art.  When you are ready to give classes, I am sure you will have a lot of attendees.

That's FANTASTIC.  I've seen a lot of leather work - and that certainly is at least one of the best I've seen.

Thanks, YinTx!!! 

Regarding classes, there is some problem - I'm afraid my spoken English will only allow me to say hello. :lol: (or rather :()

Thanks!!! 

No special lesson, only Al Stohlman's priceless books, studying of the works of leatherworker masters in an attempt to borrow some ideas and a little bit of patience :)

Incredible! What perfection - I've been staring at this for the past five minutes, transfixed by those hypnotic eyes. It looks at peace with itself, calmly at rest yet with a potency and magnetism that oozes from it. I'm sure your wife will be pleased and proud to have such a perfect guardian of her belongings.

Another "holy crap!" level piece of work Sir. I can only hope that someone wants to pay you good sums of money to do this work for them someday. This is outstanding!

Thank  you! 

I think that this is the merit of the author of this wonderful photo of a puma that I used for this work. Well, the puma itself :)
