First Storybook Zebras

This isn't actually *for* a storybook, but it's the type of thing I'm developing to head in that direction. At first the background screamed "oh my gosh why am I so bright?!" but once I got the zebras in, I thought it looked great. I'm loving the ability to combine line with mass color with detail.

Background is ink, watercolor marker, Japanese watercolor. Zebras are acryl gouache and ink.

Critique and comments welcome!

Re: First Storybook Zebras

This is great!

I was thinking about you when my latest SAA magazine came through, there's an article in there about an artist who had made it as an illustrator. Her Name is Emma Graham, and here's a link to her website.
