I absolutely loved this project! I had no idea I could draw until I followed this. I then became encouraged to try something more and purchased Chief Raven Hair, which I also LOVED!! Thanks for such an amazing tool!!!

White Tail Buck design by Mark Menendez

My experience using Mark's "White Tail Buck" pattern packet was a very good one. Mark had lots of step x step photos and instructions to help along the way. I will definitely buy more of his packets.

Great product

I’ve purchased several products from Ann’s website. I love the variety, the packaging and most of all, the promptness of the delivery. I will continue to use Ann’s website.

The reference picture was very basic especially for the eye area. There were no fur indications for direction. We are asked to use the smooth side for the pencils but you could only lay down a couple of layers before the tooth of the paper was gone and it became shiny.One colour was missing from the list of requirements, yellow ochre, and overall the instructions were poor. In the end I literally copied the picture in front of me using the little knowledge I have to complete the drawing. Will not be buying his kits again although I love his work.
