As we approach FaunaFocus’ 2-Year Anniversary, the April 2019 Free-For-All has come to and end with six different entries drawing inspiration from the mule deer. From digital to traditional and analogous to fully chromatic, we were blessed with several beautiful artworks depicting this gentle herbivore.
Congratulations to April 2019’s FaunaFocus Free-For-All Winner, Shadowind who stunned the judges with an analogous composition filled with oranges, yellows, and golds. This piece displays a mule deer peryton leaping from a field of sunflowers amongst a flock of birds. With skilled anatomy and careful attention to detail, this piece captured the hearts of the judges with its warm and welcoming presence.
Shadowind will choose the FaunaFocus for June 2019, which will be announced at the end of May’s Free-For-All critique livestream. Shadowind was also last month’s Free-For-All winner, and has thus chosen the FaunaFocus for the month of April, FaunaFocus’ first bat species, the Livingstone’s flying fox!
