This has been so much fun. The only real problem being…to come up with ways to have the animals distinct from one another…while still being black and white.
The chicken I did in black watch plaid…its got to be the most useful wool ever.
The stork…(no idea if it’s really a stork)…I used very pale green to delineate the feathers, and wing and tail tips
….for this antelope, I used a different white….one with a yellowish/brown tone. The blacks are overdyed browns….and still have a brown cast to them
I’m not happy with the antlers…but I’ll leave them for now. (This animal in real life has really strange antlers…but I didn’t quite pull them off)
Just the one large one on the right to do.
I used a grey and white glengarry plaid for this. All the other animals I hooked in contoured lines, but it looked wierd with this wool, so I pulled it out and filled it in with squiggles. I didn’t like it at first…but it’s growing on me. I need to tweek the bottom of the antlers though. I made the hooves grey so they would show up against the legs.
My animal menagerie is done. Now on to the birds.
