Stages of digitally painting my Holiday Buck, 4 years ago. At the time, I thought this was way past my skill level, it was really a stretch for me. I did it essentially as a challenge I set for myself. Now he looks a bit cartoonish and amateurish . . . but it was a triumph in dozens of small ways, where I could be thrilled that the simple focus on painting values could actually produce *something* that look like *something*.
I remember that I was very proud of myself for undertaking to follow the instructions and was able to adapt oilpainting instructions to digital painting.
Besides, I just love the animals.
