Elk Legend

Another 3D Illustration project that I recently worked on. My concept was to create a mystical, animal legend inspired from native american myths/ storytelling. I wanted to try out a new technique, and my professor had just introduced me to this process called needle felting. Basically you use various fibers and mesh the fibers together with a barbed tipped needle repetitively poking the needle through the fiber. This makes the material knot together, kind of like dreadlocks. It’s a surprisingly easy and fast additive process. The forms are made solely from wool, camel hair, soft mohair. No wire skeleton structure was necessary. Thanks and enjoy!
