'King Rat' was featured by taweille (https://www.deviantart.com/taweille) , whom I cannot thank enough :) It never even occurred to me that one of my cutouts could be selected! This really made my day.
I've been working on this cutout for about a month and a half. For some reason I'm unable to draw some of the elements it contains correctly, and it's driving me mad. I've researched the way other illustrators tackle those elements, looked at tons of photo references and sketched like crazy to try to get them right. I feel very frustrated and unconfident right now. What do you guys do when you really CAN'T draw something? Taking a break and then going back to work hasn't helped.
