Graphic Quilled Cartoon - Bambi Quilled Picture

I am extremely proud of this graphic quilled cartoon. I usually quill landscape style, that is using basic shapes to create the quilled picture, but I picked up enough courage to try doing it filled Yulia style with strips, but have tried to create my own style and I think it worked!!

I have previously tried graphic quilling Bambi like in this piece but did not have enough confidence to fill it. So this time I just jumped into the deep end and I'm thrilled at the results.
I just tore the strip into short pieces to represent hair and did a bit of bending and crushing to get the hair effect. I wanted it to look a bit curly since Bambi is a calf. Then I followed the normal rules of pencil art and where shadow was required I put in some black.

Graphic quilling tips on how this piece was done is here.

If you like this piece like I do please leave your comments.

Here's a larger image for those who want to see the details of how the strips have been pasted. I have outline bambi first, then pasted short strips to highlight the contours and  have added a few black strips where shadow was needed. the grass is just folded straight and pasted. I used a color image to get the sense of the picture.
