A couple weeks ago I lost my little guinea pig Russel. I always think it's amazing how smart (I mean, not terribly smart, but suprisingly smart) these little guys are for just being rodents. Russel was a great companion and I will miss him a ton.
Just finished this up- I was trying to work with using bolder color contrast, as well as working without solid outlines again. What's challenging for me is not smoothing all my colors out perfectly; sometimes a little painterly texture is good.
