При изготовлении лягушки, например, она достает маленькие пучки шерсть при помощи иглы - это похоже на акварель. Можно создавать расплывчатые цветные переходы.

Some veterinarians, as well as some pet owners, also questioned whether sterilization was good for the animals. Today, virtually all animal protection groups, and many people who adopt companion animals as well, agree that the animals should be sterilized.
