Marshmallow reality

I posted an image a few months ago of the dog and cat character in a trunk shaped plane flying towards the sun as they held their marshmallows out to be toasted.  The idea was that this ridiculous concept was their imagination - and the below illustration is the reality.  But while both drawings have the characters doing something silly, why wouldn't you want to go to a real source of heat (like the Sun) instead of using artificial means to achieve a tasty toasted marshmallow?

First off - here was the original drawing:

Then I cleaned it up in Adobe Illustrator:

And after that I imported the lines into Photoshop (pasting it so I could choose to keep the vector lines intact).  I colored the piece in Photoshop and when I finished I used 'edit content' to take the illustration back into Illustrator to self color the lines.

That is awesome! I didn't realize there was a way to go between Illustrator and Photoshop! I will have to try that! Your illustration is adorable! I love the squirrel's tail!

Adorable. I feel a need to roast a marshmallow now.
