Sunday Still - Textures



One of our softest fleeces...and hardest heads. Ford.



Buddy, the kindest sheep in the world. His fuzzy chukka boot legs are so soft. His curly fleece is soft too - a different kind of soft than Ford - if you can get past all the lanolin ;-).



Ewen McTeagle. I tried to capture his super soft cheeks, but couldn't. Such a contrast to his dense, coarse Suffolk/Hamp fleece. Different breed's wools feel completely different, so don't just feel one sheep and think you've felt them all.



For fun - can you tell who this is?

Awesome textures on the ram's head! I also love that super-soft, curly wool on the sheep's cheeks.

Happy Sunday!

Nice variety of textures from simply sheep. I especially liked the fuzziness of Ewen’s ear :-)

Love the cartoon of Ed! It's perfect!
Sheep fleece and other parts are perfect for this challenge, my fave is Eween McTeagles ear and fleece. (with the roughness of the hay)

At first glance looking at the first picture, I thought the ear tag was the eyeball. Spooky alien sheep!
