Hidden Path/Caught in the Light

Hidden Path/Caught in the Light - student project

This was my second attempt at the hidden path.  My first attempt was done after just watching the class.  It wasn't working, so I started over and painted along with the video.  I can't even begin to contain my excitement about how this turned out.  I have never used photoshop, and I can't believe I've been missing out all this time!

This one I'm pretty proud of, especially since I almost quit halfway through.  Until I started adding details, I thought it was way too busy.  But it turns out, gaussian blur is my best friend.  I was also terrified to paint the stag, considering I don't have a lot of experience painting animals.
