Friends Helping Friends

Finished my snail illustration. Yay! I debated on drawing faces on the butterflies but I thought that might be a little too busy. Textures found at mayang.com [link].

That's beautiful and so fun. You gotta start doing your own books. This is fantastic.

Michaela! THIS.IS.ABSOLUTELY.INCREDIBLE!!!!!! When I first opened it up I thought it was a photograph. I love the snails expression, the colors and your butterflies are so photo realistic even without little faces. In fact I like them faceless because it makes them more of the silent/anonymous/hero/helper. Great work my friend.

@Jennifer- Thank you! I'm glad you agree with about the faces. I thought it was nice to see them as...well, exactly how you described it! heehee...xo
