I started this rhino template (Facebook - Ornation Creation) many weeks ago back when school was in progress. I worked on it a little here and there during my art club time. When I packed up to bring things home for summer, I almost left him at school, thinking I really wasn't too keen on it. So when I found him peeking out of my book bag, I thought he might deserve a second glance.
I finished the tangling and then used colored pencils to give him a nice gray look. After that I cut him out and put laid him on some jungle scrapbooking paper I have. He just didn't pop. So I backed him in black and think that is a better look. I love the look of rhino hide on the paper - makes him feel at home, I think!
