Friday's invisible (non existent) blog post was down to a desperate bid to finish this piece off so that I could submit it in time to Hallmark Creative Design Studio's Kool for Kids competition.
I knew there wouldn't be much of a chance to work on over the weekend as we were going kayaking on the Border Esk for a good chunk of it (which was pretty flipping scary & fast as the water levels were quite high), so something had to give and it was the usual Friday post.
Really pleased that I managed to finished it off, and even if it doesn't get anywhere in the comp i'm planning on using it as a card design and maybe selling it as a print in the shop at some point down the line:
Since posting the sketch last Tuesday, you'll notice I altered the border so it now encases the characters and brings the whole design together.
Hope you like it. I don't yet have a title for the illustration so if you can think of something fitting then i would love to hear it.
