First! (Had to do it)
I was really honored by this commission! Leon’s parents wanted someone to make him his very first art badge for his very first convention. Considering he is only 9 months old, I imagine his collection over the years will be impressive, but I hope this badge will have a special place in his heart.
His fursona is a white tiger/ fox hybrid. His mane hasn’t grown in at this point, but there are hints of things to come in this piece. The pose is from an adorable picture provided by his parents. Hopefully someday down the line I can do another for him.
The final badge is done in Copic markers on Strathmore Bristol 500 vellum. The background takes a special technique I picked up from a Copic class I took a while ago. I will have to go into it a bit more in a different post someday.
