wee beastie in the swamp

I thought I'd try some abstract foliage, but I think it looks possibly a bit too much like it could be a Pink Floyd album cover... Hmm. Not sure about this one.

I love the colours :-) and a nice contrast with the wee beastie. is he for a publication, or just for fun ?

Thanks! I'm doing several series of images to get a feel for my new way of working with gouache paint, but I might use him at some point. He's very easy to paint... He's a bit of a cross between Pokemon and Max from Where the Wild Things Are.

He's adorable! I get the impression he'd like to look fierce, with his horns and everything, but he's just too cute to pull it off. I'm studying closely and trying to work out how you get the facial details down to the very minimum, as here, and yet convey such a strong expression. Those two little eye-dots look so bewildered by his surroundings (I'm just glad he made it off that island somehow...)
The backgrounds get better and better. Still reminiscent of some kind of ethnic art (maybe more Indian than Chinese this time) but still very vibrant and original. Well done!
