    1. I can tell it’s the back of his or someone’s left hand, but it’s awkward getting my knuckles and fingers into that position. Who looks at the back of their hand and says, “That could be an owl”?

  1. Wow, those images are just awesome PT. And I’m really jealous of how that mosaic looks with your theme, particularly since its “main column” is listed as being narrower than mine!

    1. I’m not sure I see the difference between this and your “Unbelievable 3D Drawings” mosaic. But I’ve never looked at the code specs for the mosaic. I just throw all the images into the “gallery maker” and whatever happens, happens.

        1. I think it’s just the difference in themes. The main column in yours looks about 650px wide and mine is 750px. That’s a notable difference. Looks like you might be limiting your image sizes to less than the available width. I wasn’t able to find the exact measurement for your theme, so I can’t say for sure.

        1. It’s a little unnerving to see how much human skin looks like elephant hide with just the addition of gray paint.

          Of the images I posted, I think the komodo dragon may be my favorite. I inadvertently left out the snake “Pitone Reale,” which is also outstanding. There are 3 hands in it, as there are in the komodo.

          1. Glad you went to his site There is SOOOO much more there. It was tough limiting myself to just a few of the “animal hand” pictures, with all the different things he’s done.

    1. That’s the extent of my experience, too. If you poke around on his website you can find pictures of models with painted hands, pictures of him painting hands, faces, or entire bodies.

... and that's my two cents
