Needle felted taxidermy reindeer

What inspired your project? Other What are you most proud of? I love faux taxidermy, or craftydermy, and wanted to create something fun for my handmade ornament swap. There were 8 of us, and 8 reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh so this was the perfect project. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a photo of a real animal to refer to as you are needle felting. It doesn't have to be photorealistic but it helped me with proportions and eye placement.
