It's a wonderful piece, great composition with the direct eye contact and I've looked at a lot of deer pics recently, love the straight on view like that, really shows off the antlers.
Saw a tip on wax bloom, was actually the lady who sells the fancy heating board for colored pencil, does a lot of stone pieces. Anyway, her tip for wax bloom was to heat it with a hair dryer. How easy is that, to remove it, then you can hit it with some fixative spray, and wella, done. Just in case you want to use your wax pencils again. I tried to switch to Polys but couldn't give up the Prismacolors.. so I took to do doing prismacolors first and then going over with the polys. Sometimes I still want to do prismas alone. Good luck with your new pencils.
Oh yes, and great puffy look to the ears.
