A World of Animals was the most ambitious project I ever attempted. It took over four months to complete and over 1000 layers in Photoshop. My original Animal World was a paper sculpture. When the decision was made to do a digital version, I decided to add more animals. The monkey, owl, duck, ostrich, ibex, black bear, bees, rabbit, fawn, butterfly, frog, starfish, eel, piranha, crab, shark, and octopus were all additions. Almost twenty new brushes in Photoshop were created to imitate animal hair, leaves, and skin textures. What do you think?
