This was done my first year in my major. My class worked with the zoology department of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. We were taken to a very large "cold room" and given the opportunity to choose from a plethora of taxidermic zoological specimens. The project goal was to create a mock poster highlighting an upcoming exhibit.
This is my first time ever illustrating in Photoshop. I used a Wacom tablet and created many custom brushes for richer textures.
