New painting!

Not the best picture, I'll have to get some more up. It's painted on a mule deer head! It looks a little distorted cause of the angle, reason I need more pics of it. What do you think?

I am intrigued, but can't quite make out heads or tails of it. Take some pictures further back and from different angles so we can see it better. Looks cool!

Wow, that is really unique, good job!
Please do post some more pics, it is kind of hard to figure out the actual layout of the painting.

I think that it is a crocodile? Lovely work!

Ok, here's some progress pics I took while painting it. It's an alligator. I painted it for my brother n law cause everyone calls him gator. I taped the antlers with blue painters tape so I wouldnt get paint all over them. Excuse hubby, he had his work jacket on and it is so stained!

Really Cool!

Thanks for posting those additional pics. It really is good work!

And thanks for explaining the story behind it!
I was really wondering why you thought to put a gator on a mule deer head...
Now I know!
