With the subject matter, I love your choice of colors. The neutral greens and brown earthy tones fits the picture fantastically and couldn't be done any better. Your line work looks great and really makes it stand out. I love the embellishments and the 3-d way they're done. Usually I don't see it so detailed. I also find the how strong and bold the elk looks to be great. the only thing that bugs me is that the sizes of the owl and hedgehog could have matched a little more to create a greater balance. otherwise phenomenal. :) It would make a great tattoo and would look sweet on upper back or if the owl was a little smaller, a sick chest piece!

The blending of color is great, especially how you mixed slight warm tones into the cool. Love that. Reminds me of summer turning to fall.

However, the left side of the piece is very heavy due to the largeness of both the owl and the deer in relation to the hedgehog. My eye is constantly being drawn back to the owl and I have to truly try to see the hedgehog and the border. This is saddening considering the I feel the eye should travel from the outside two animals, in to the deer, and up around the leaves. Perhaps lightening the values on the owl a bit or deepening those of the hedgehog and deer would create a better balance, or just enlarging the hedgehog a tiny bit to fit the size of the other two. Also...is the hedgehog's paw turned under?

Over all I love the blending of colors and the detail work on the owl and hedgehog. You have a great sense of light and dark and the hi-lights of the piece, though subtle, are outstanding and exceedingly well blended. I'm not a big color tattoo person, but this one certainly receives my love.

I'm in love with this, it's breathtaking. I love how you made the stag the focal point just by adding a little warm light to him. It's composed with such a beautiful flow and balance of lights and darks.
