Happy Otter - JWW 2021 Calendar "In the Wonder World"
This illustration of May was finished a while ago, and here's finally the blog post where you'll see the finished illustration and all the work-in-progress material.
Just like all the other illustrations in this calendar, I wanted to add a little touch of magic and wonder into this one as well. That's why the lily pads are growing high above the water, almost like they're flowing. I'm very pleased with how the colors turned out in this illustration, so bright and happy. The vibe of spring carries through just as it should.
Above there is the time-lapse video of the painting process of this happy little otter and its friends. On the left there is the finished, scanned illustration. As always, my phone doesn't do justice to the actual colors of the painting. That's why the colors in the work-in-progress pictures (the gallery below) are somewhat dull.
