Graphic Quilled Cartoon Picture - Walt DIsney's Thumper from Bambi

quilled picture quilled landscape bambi thumper walt disney quilled art graphic quilling
I have quilled cartoons before using both landscape quilling (A Lion Share of Love) and graphic outline quilling ( Tinkerbell, Twittypating and Muddled Mutt). This quilled picture of Thumper  follows from Bambi  for which I adopted my own style of graphic quilling in which I have used the strips like you would use a pencil.

The direction of the small strips create the illusion of the contours along with dark and light colors which give the depth.

I am thrilled with the fact that Thumper's bold innocence has come out well through the twinkle in his eyes.

There is not much I can give by way of instructions as it only involves pasting the strips. You can refer to my tips here in which I have tried to say it all. Since that tutorial, I have stopped pasting on the print out directly since the pencil marks can show through. I transfer the image by keeping the backing under the print out and tracing with a thin embossing stylus. I use the embossed side to see the image clearly. If the lines are seen I cover it up by gluing strips. Nature is never perfect. In fact the diversity is achieved through slight imperfections , hence,  I don't try to get my images or flowers perfectly symmetrical as I love to imitate nature. Believe you me, I am no great artist!! I discovered that I had even a semblance of artistry only after I started quilling less than a year back. So, those of you who think it is tough, just jump in and try it. You will be surprised at what you discover!!

Come tell me what you think. I would love to have your feedback.
