After looking at my deer couple, I realized that Mrs. Deer did not have the right response to Mr. Deer's dashing gaze. I wanted her to look shy and graceful. So, after work today, I sat down and brought her to life. I made her edges softer, tilted her nose down and gave her fur a softer pattern. I also made her woodland crown more delicate. I am really happy with the results!
Before I paint them I will re draw the oval a little higher so that she doesn't seem so tall. I think they make a much nicer couple. Don't you?
