Vivid Platypus

I love these brightly colored, simple critters...I just need to figure out the kind of background they want to live on. (There's the rub!) Metallic gold is a little better than blank white, but it's still not perfect yet.

I am quite pleased with the design, though. I also think he'd make a fabulous pair of enamel earrings, but I'm not sure how I'd get those made. Probably there's a place in China that does it, but I'd probably need to buy 300 pairs or something.

5 x 7, mixed media (I WILL use that tube of iridescent gold metallic acrylic I bought in 1997 in my lifetime!) on watercolor paper. Original will probably go to MFF with me, unless somebody's just gotta have it first, prints available at Red Wombat Studio at: [link]

I've been searching for a platypus to get inked on me - my own thoughts on how even god has a sense of humor, and all that. Are you adverse to people doing so? I'd be happy to include the sig mark.

If you do end up getting those 300 pairs of earrings, I would be more than willing to buy one off of you. ;P

This is a very well made piece. :)
You're very good at making these characters look slick and glisten-y.
