This guy was for our "every hair on the dog" project.
We had to pick an animal and render the crap out of it's fur in acrylic paint. The purpose was to represent texture as well as possible. So, I decided that this little mouse was a good choice. I also used gold leaf on this piece. It was my first time experimenting with gold leaf, and after some direction from my professor, I feel it is a strong piece... gold leaf and all.
