Hog meets Bug

Hog meets Bug

Dinner? Leaving the subject aside, this is a skillful combination of techniques which have produced a charming image.

Very effective use of techniques David, great detail on the spines.

Thank you for your comments. I really appreciate them.

Nice one David, embossing technique worked beautifully. Don't be in to much of a rush with the remainder. With your pencil skills, the grass work could have been much better. Have a look at some of the work on the UKCPS (coloured pencil society) site. You would be amassed at what can be achieved. The American site is spectacular as well.

Thanks for your comments Peter. I understand what you are saying. Pencil work takes a very long time to achieve so maybe I rushed the back ground by using watercolour. I have so many ideas I want to work on and never enough time

Coloured pencil and watercolour. The hedgehog and the ladybird where drawn using coloured and graphite pencils. The white spines of the hog were created first using embossing tools and then over-drawn with pencil, this leaves the white of the paper shining through.The back ground is watercolour.
