This was a practice page that I used to test out some cloud and fur/hair techniques. Most of the tutorials I watch on textures encourage drawing the textures on dimensionally complex objects like spheres, cylinders, or cubes. This allows the drawer to practice maintaining the realism of the texture at various angles and shades.
