I believe this was the best project and I spent more time on it than any other project. I began by observing a plastic elk. I used oil pastels to create the outline then layered color on color to create the illusion of texture. I carved into the horns to add actual texture and added plants to the corners to improve my use of space. I ended up changing the background last minute from light blue to dark blue because I believed the contrast looked better. I would not change anything about this project because I believe Iv'e added all there is to add.
