That leaf on the flag was the most difficult.
The moose is the creature. The canadian geese are just part of the background.
EDIT: Modified for the challenge.
Geese are the winner for this picture :D But moose is great too.
Very good job on the geese, they all are instantly recognizable and it's clear that every pixel counts. From this piece and others in gallery, it seems you have a real knack for choosing the right colors for 'natural' painting.
Fantasy creature? I guess maybe I read it wrong. I thought it was fantasy character (which could be almost anything) or.. a creature (which would mean an animal of some sort)
It got accepted into the challenge? And I had it in the WIP thread...I wish someone said something then as I don't have much time the rest of this week.
And Petrichor...Good idea, but I can't hurry with my pixels...and that's the problem at this point. If I find some time I'll make some changes if I can come up with something. Otherwise pull it from the challenge if it doesn't work.
Hurry! Give it wings.
A moose is not a fantasy creature :/
I think everyone understands why I vote for this! :D
