Dessertimals – Moose Or Mousse

 Moose, mousse, or both? What’s really the question? Why a raspberry?

This was done with copic marker, liner, and paint pen. Raspberry because it adds the pop of color you need to make the two brown shapes stand apart. I thought about putting a chocolate curl on top but it would have made it look like a giant brown smudge from afar. 
So does the moose want the mousse or the raspberry?

Dessertimals – Chameleon

 

Is this chameleon’s problem that his tongue is to sticky or is it the caramel?  

Done with copic markers and liner. It was a big question – do I make the apple green or red? Red would make it stand out. Green would make it match putting the them on equal footing. I didn’t want the apple more important than the chameleon. 

So, what’s stickier?

So many copic colors go into a single 2″ animal. 14 markers before I’ve even added in shadows. The liner is copic too. It only took me about 20 min to get the basic sketch onto paper but then I transferred it, colored it, and now I’m blogging it. 

When doing a commission you need to make sure you add in little personal touches. The right shades of color helps a lot. If you can add in a way they hold themselves or tilt their heads it really makes it read x person or furson.
