This is another exercise from Carla's book. I might have taken the instructions too seriously though. Here is my dog:
In my defense, your honor, I have to say that the background was already painted in dark colors and that determined the color choice after that. Oh, and there were some circles painted as well; I felt they had to be included in the final image, so my genetically engineered dog is all about roundness! It was a hilarious project and I am planning to try it again from scratch this time. These exercises have unpredictable results every time. That is what makes them so fun.
