I'm guilty of using this delightful subject before, but did some modifications which I hope, you find appealing.  

I've recently found the tool from Topaz that best suits what I am trying to show, but this was processed before that event.

Please feel free to view uncompressed.

Thank you for looking.  

Hope all safe.

Excellent job of retaining the detail where it is needed, and beautiful job with Topaz providing a lovely painterly feel to the fur. The texture in the background looks great. Exceptional image, Dave. :D

Beautifully detailed and expressive, Dave- perfect texture for this beauty. I think what I like best are the eyes in a higher rez view you can see, especially, just a hind of color which really brings out their soulful look. Love the light behind the Nyati as well. Lovely work!

A must click on the link for the high resolution, larger image to fully appreciate just how beautiful this is! The tonality and brushwork are perfect, and the overall effect is quite stunning. This would make an amazing print, Dave! Love it!

Great job with this Dave - I like the painterly effect and how the eyes capture the viewers attention!
Trying to share it as I see it . . .
