There is nothing like a nice warm beverage when you have a bit of a cold.
What color is an orange vs a lemon? The color of various citrus fruits was highly debated in the making of this picture which lead to the creation of several versions before this one was picked. This yellow is to bright, that looks like an orange, no one drinks hot Toddy’s with lime, etc… I thought about posting the fails but I didn’t apparently save them. I hope this warms the depths of a bad cold.

This was done with copic markers, liners, and paints. The ice was done with a technique where you use one marker to deliver another markers color which you’ve put on the tip.

Done with copic marker, liner, and paint. I originally had hug written across the shirt but it didn’t really work out. The hair texture was achieved by putting dark brown market onto a medium brown copic marker tip and then I started the brush stroke where I wanted the darker marker. As you move the marker it leaves the darker marker on the paper first. It makes for an interesting blending of colors.
It’s a donkey and his apple pie moonshine. They’re done using copic marker and liner. The shades of brown were difficult to balance. This is actually the second one I did. The more accurate coloration looked absolutely aweful. So I cartooned this thing up and tada. Enjoy
A dog and his stein are not soon parted. The only question with a stein is how full it really is.
Done with copic marker and liner.
It’s important to check on the cultural significance of an item before you draw/color an item. It could completely change the meaning of your art unintentionally and it isn’t pleasant when you think you’re saying x and an entire group of people are seeing y.
