I really felt that making the list of animals got the creative juices flowing. The animals i chose were Swan, Stag and Axolotl. The traits i chose were Prideful, Curious and Air-headed.
I already knew pretty much what color scheme i wanted to use for it but was positively surprised by how much i liked the stag colors on the other 2. also swan Axolotl is beautiful. ^v^
Finally I tried to utilize what you said about thicker lines for shaded areas, as i have a tendency to forget about line-weight. Also i really enjoyed how you made the scene pop by building it in layers and having some of it leave the confines of the frame, so i may have flat out stolen that... <.< The location i chose was Jungle.
And there you go. i really enjoyed this course and have already left a good review, definately got alot of good tips i will use in my designs going forward.
