I'm still fiddling with drawing for this painting. The problem to start with was the upper oval was a little wider than I was planning. Then the deer shape drawn relative to the oval was off balanced as the result, while the positions and size of paws were fine because they were relative to the lower oval.
But the position of deer's left eye is correct. So now I can draw/paint everything relative to the eye. Now I might not need to correct the oval any more.
