HELLO DEVIANTART, I forgot to upload this when I finished it, woops.

The process of creating this piece went so much more quickly than I thought it would. I went with the red color comp, but amped up the saturation of the colors a bit. The assignment for this piece was to design a children’s magazine cover, hence the slightly polarized left-right layout. This blog post has a few work-in-progress images and a neat gif of the process.

MEDIA: Ink, watercolor, marker, gouache, and colored pencil on watercolor paper, 9x14”

Oh goshhh the warm tones are wonderful, and so many cute critters! The badger is my favorite - and I love the swirling motion in that foreground tree.

Thanks so much! That tree was inspired by one I saw while out in a field a couple months ago. It's fascinating how each individual tree has its own story if you look hard enough. C:

absolutely gorgeous! I love that you've made the badger and opossum more defined, gives the picture nice depth

Thanks! I'm very glad that depth came across well- that's something I've been needing to work on
