Suddenly with the mice as 'newlyweds' both mice are attempting to get on the ship... were as before I kept seeing it as only one mouse was about to embark on the journey...

Great work!

Hey Cliff it looks great! I like the Newlywed mice better than the earlier concepts. I'm still amazed on how quickly you get these done and the quality of your paintings.

Final Coloring: Mouse Trip

Another update. I bowed the rope more, good suggestion. Also tightened up the characters a bit. I'm more of a painterly painter - trying to keep it consistent.

Hewy, Cliff, looking good. I like the costuming, too. Your last post says "Final Coloring"... are you going to do 2 or 3 more now?

Also just saw that you placed again in the latest SCBWI contest - congrats! I started working on an idea for that but decided I didn't like it... Good thing, too, as I saw several more images on the page just like mine. I guess the animals playing card games and such in a cave" contingent was well represented. I'd like to get back into doing those again but... rainbows? I dunno about rainbows. I keep thinking of twisted, inappropriate takes on them... so hard to do straight.

Anyhow, good seeing things coming along for you...!

Thanks guys,

Mike, I think I will attempt a couple of more concepts. I just may have the time, though I will clean this one up a bit more.

Great coloring, it is good to have more than one concept so you find out wich one works better, i saw your other images in previous challenges very nice and well done.

Line Art: Ants

Thought I would come up with another image. This one will have ants moving through the trees towards the picnic table in the back.

Coloring WIP: Ants

Some more color. It's a bit boring right now because I haven't introduced any characters at this point.

What great colors- it feels like such a wonderfully relaxing area. I want to go there!
