Here are selections for another easy reader book I just finished. The story follows a family of groundhogs as the babies venture out of their den for the first time.
They enjoy munching on the green grass for a time before escaping back to the den when a fox appears. I tried to give the little guys some personality despite the need to portray them as realistically and not stylize too much.
I would rather have made them more animated and characterized, but the art direction dictated they be “real” groundhogs. I think I struck the right balance between real and cute.
Once again, I made all the preliminary drawings traditionally and then scanned and painted them in Photoshop.
