Desert Dweller by SpottedNymph Desert Dweller by SpottedNymph
Meh, I've been really hitting art hard for the last few months.....

This is a small gift to someone who gave me a scholarship. He told us about a story where he encountered a jackrabbit in the Arizona desert, and he described the meeting with such detail, it just must have been one of those moments that stuck with him. So, I thought this would be neat to do to go along with my thank-you letter.

He is garbed with modern Navajo jewelry.

Navaho jewelery is for the win. (Love how you balanced their saturation into the composition.)

Your shading and presence never cease to amaze me, hon.

I bet most people don't expect art like this in a thank you letter. Good idea!

I like your color gradients with the background and the softness of his coloring.

Thank you! I was afraid of fading the background out too much. I just want to add detail everywhere! X)

I know the feeling. I don't think it looks washed at all and actually brings more focus to the foreground.
