Gator Gaggle by CourtneysConcepts Gator Gaggle by CourtneysConcepts
This is a Graphite drawing I did a bit ago. The illustration took over 3 months to complete, and is honestly my favorite artwork that I've created. The concept was meant to redefine family, as well as to make a humorous contrast of how mothers act. XD

I did some photoshop editing, The background area is actually a whole heck of a lot lighter in my original, so I added a multiply layer overtop the grass and sky, to darken it up a bit. But other than that this is 100% by hand, traditional! Yep!

Love it - one never knows what alligators get up to, though I would never see the ones I have come across do this, let alone not eat them.

Congrats on DD.

This is a very well done illustration with a nice concept. The technical rendering of the drawing is also marvelous, as well - I'm amazed at how smooth you've made the pencil marks! Marvelous work!
