MY COMMENTS:
it's been a while since I've done something like this. but I fell in love with the reference. I left the back ground out of focus so as to draw the eye into the elk and particularly his head area.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
open c&c is very much appreciated. thank you.

nice work!
the head may be a tad large for the body
and they generally have more of a flat/straight back
but yeah, i can smell the fall air

Is the eye just a bit too large?

Very good painting! I remember those calls...eerie.

possibly, it was a little larger but I corrected it during the process. I may have left it a bit big though. very good point, thank you.
