I think I had one of those living in my attic over the winter.
Nice! Very well done as usual.

Thanks. This one was actually a lot of work.

Its got a lot of detail. Is that why it was a lot of work or did you try a new technique or something?

Not a new technique, regular soft pastel and pastel pencil. It's the detail in the fur; you need to sharpen pastel pencils every few strokes, with a knife and sandpaper.

Oh i see. Makes sense

Sammy è bellissimo i miei complimenti!

Thank you kindly, Armando. My first painting ever was a squirrel in acrylic. That was in September 2019 and I named him "Squirrelzilla" - easy to see why. I believe I'm making progress, slowly but surely. 🤣
