This was a difficult process and I have learned what not to do next time. I looked at the slideshow again and I noticed that actually the background is rarely done so the focus is on the animal itself, I feel that my illustration is too busy and the lizzard gets lost. I will redo at some point with more defined areas. Practice makes perfect (I hope!). I may go back to it in the future to maybe do more on the lizzard skin too.
