jungle critters for little boy's room

Hi y'all! I'm starting a new mural next week in a little boy's room. He likes wild animals and ewwwy critters, so I'm working on sketches this week. I'm having so much fun I couldn't wait to show you the ideas.

THESE ARE COMPUTER SKETCHES, NOT the actual mural.

Sketch for over the bed... rugby game


Sketch for between windows ... snake swing


Sketch for wall with moon night-light... client thinks maybe use some other animals besides monkeys


Sketch for closet wall...


Sketch for bathroom wall ...


Sketch for closet wall ...


Sketch that was not chosen but I like it ...


Can't wait to get going on this. Stay tuned!
Ruth

Re: jungle critters for little boy's room

I get to be first to say, no wonder you are having such fun Ruth. It really looks fun with your little critters. My favorite might be the marshmallow roast, but they are all so cute. I, too, like the last one that was not chosen.

Apparently a lot of WCers are not able to sign on tonight, otherwise they would be here posting. I think I am the only one that posted in Chatterbox since morning of 4-10-08. I am using the Mozilla Firefox browser. Don't know if that is the reason. Hopefully, the new owners will get things going again.

Re: jungle critters for little boy's room

OK, I must be a-losin' it, I KNOW I posted to this while I was at work the other day... but it must have been lost in cyberspace (or I got deleted for improper content! )

I said then that I love the monkeys around the campfire Ruth. I think you should just be sneaky and paint them when the homeowner isn't looking Just KIDDING! But I really do like that idea, it would be too cute!

Can't wait to see this come to life under your brush, Ruth!

Re: jungle critters for little boy's room

I finished it today, but my camera batteries died before I could photograph all of it! The clients said they would invite me back when they have finished decorating. Here's what I could get pictures of today... They love it.










I was sure I leveled that rugby field, but it looks slanted in the photo. May have to go back and fix that!

Re: jungle critters for little boy's room

Well DUH! Of COURSE they love it!! This is so cool Ruth, your critters have such personality and character... I think the tiger's my fave, but that alligator is sooo cool, and those frogs... well... OK. I love it all!
