This image was done for The IF site where the word of the week was "Garden."

The rough.

The tight line art.

The inked art.

Wonder for Picture Bookies site.

The "Picture Bookies" site is the same as the IF site.
They give you a word. You draw a picture.
The word this week is "Wonder."
This is a marker study.

IF - Leap

Well, it's been a while since I was able to do anything for IF, but I felt the need to take a leap and restart my submissions.
I went through several ideas for this one, from the obvious frog leaping to a group of animals sitting around a tree stump looking at what's left of a squirrell who forgot to look before he leaped. I still might get back to that one and change the squirrell to an object that is fascinating them.
This image came from one of those moments when you stop thinking and an idea just pops into your head.
What animal is least likely to leap? An elephant. Why would he leap? Mouse. Why would the mouse want him to leap? Well, so he can have some shade of course and still get a breeze once in a while.
