Before you go crunch on the ground...


It's probably better to end up in a tree. Of course, I think in this story's case, the panda would have been fine wherever he landed...but he seems pretty thrilled that he ended up stuck above this nice couple in their backyard...

This is a much more involved illustration than some of the previous square animal but I want to show that I can draw scenes, and not just characters (as this is going to be sent with the other skydiving illustration to different children's book publishers).

This illustration still isn't done - I'm still debating on whether or not the panda should be on a telephone wire, or a tree limb...and there still needs to be a house or some sort of background nonsense...my first thought is to put a field back there, but that doesn't really show off too much skill...so I'll be adding a full background...

I did a quick color fill just to make it easier to see which direction the illustration is going. I am definitely leaning towards putting a tree there for the panda to be stuck in...

I love it - do you have stuff published in children's books? Would love to see some.
How did you do your colouring?
Great work
