A Buck or a Poodle?


Right now I am leaning towards poodle! Or maybe Boodle or Puck? Seriously though, I know I have to give it a chance, but so far this is not looking like I had imagined. I wanted it to have a textural look like the hair on a buck. Not sure this is it! I am also re-thinking the pine trees in the background as I have it drawn now. I think I may sketch in some birch trees as well to break it up a little more. That's the beauty of this medium though, you aren't committed to anything until you stitch it! Not really even then, as you always have the option of ripping it out and starting over.My poor mind is always working, especially when I should be sleeping. I wake up with ideas in my head that excite me, then have a hard time going back to sleep. Its a sickness I tell you! Of all the sicknesses there are though, I am glad so far, this is mine! Thanks for looking my friends!

Wow! I think this is going terrifically. Doesn't look like poodle hair to me! This deer is beautiful and glad to be protected!

Bat a Bing! On to November...I have the same problem with all those thoughts in my brain in the middle of the night. Your piece doesn't look like a poodle at all to me...but, then again, I don't get much sleep either ;)

Tracey, I think it looks great! Maybe you think that because you don't have the whole thing filled in yet?? I don't know, but I think with such little beadwork it looks lifelike already!

I agree that the buck looks like a buck and think that he'll "grow into" his textured top in time. It's good to keep open to change, even as you are beading.
