This reminds me of a Dr. Seuss book. The way it's so colorful and... well, FUN!

What did you use to color it?

This is magnificent saw this on your profile page and had to save and comment. Love the colours ,characters are so adorable you want to pick them up and hug them.The gumboots on there feet is a nice touch. You have a great quirky sense of humor.

ovo :heart: Oh this made me happy, especially since it was for *this* piece. I love this piece quite a great deal, and so does my family, so much that I was asked to paint it as a mural in my newborn baby sister's room. Because of that, it's very special to me, and so I really love every comment I get on it.

Thanks so much for telling me why you like it! I really love to draw cuddly things, so I'm glad you think these guys are huggable. The gum boots were the part that stood out the most in my mind when I wanted to draw this picture. :heart:

9v9 You're going to make me blush!

XD I wish it was here! It got sort of looking like it would maybe kinda perhaps rain yesterday but then it didn't. It was just cloudy and windy and lame.

Basically one day I woke up and the image was intensely vivid in my mind, color scheme and all. I was like: "OH MAN, and I can do the rain with watercolors and lift the page up and let it DRIP and it'll be all..watery!!!! "

XDXD Word for word, I swear. The rain was an experiment that didn't turn out exactly as planned, but it's still okay. Learning experiences, learning experiences!

Basically, I love bright colors when the rest of something is just white. That's what the monsters came into existence for.. I had a certain children's book in mind where that technique was used, but I can't recall which it was now! XD gah! Don't you hate it when that happens?

The little kitty is my favourite part. XD He looks to "checked out" haha!

Oooh man, those are the best kinds of ideas--the really spur of the moment ones. Too bad they don't come around more often! xD
