Leroy the Camel
Having graduated from Campbell University I have this place in my heart for camels. It is the mascot of the university after all. You wouldn’t want to be in there way if a herd were running at you.
I wanted to create a camel that had its own personality; however, not come across as disneyish (finished a previous camel painting that just came off too…happy? – I haven’t posted it yet, but will soon).
Been doing a lot of research on some new painting techniques that I wanted to try out. So here is a step by step creation of bring Leroy to life using those new techniques.
