Cute Hedgehog

Cute Hedgehog - student project

Hey! For this class, I decided to draw a cute hedgehog.

 

At first I made a few sketches from your exercise - to try different angles, styles and details.
And as final I decided to choose a sketch of hedgehog lying on his back, only slightly changing some details.

I think that the hedgehog turned out recognizable :)

I'm still very bad in colors and texture, so I am not really satisfied with the result, but I think this is the best thing I can do now.

I also had a problem with a Kyle Webster Gouache A Go Go brush - for some reason when I use it, it have some kind of “cage” filling (as you can see on picture below and on the bottom of hedgehog body).
I never have such a problem with other brushes before.

 
Maybe you know what's the problem with it? Maybe something wrong in the brush settings? Or is it due to mixing with other colors / brushes?
I will be very glad if you can help deal with this problem!

But in any case, thank you very much, Stephanie, for the class!
You gave me very useful tips and it was interesting to draw animals! :)
