This took me a while, but it was a nice transition back into digital painting for me.
The photo I used for the subject is a picture of Emily Graslie, the host of an awesome educational channel called the Brain Scoop. I was an instant fan of the show mostly because of Emily’s obvious passion and dedication to zoology and animal preservation. She’s changed my opinion on taxidermy completely; and I think the mark of a great educational show is not only teaching something, but also changing someones perspective.
Thank you Emily, Michael, Hank, and everyone involved in the Brain Scoop. The world needs more passion and wonder towards the sciences.
