A major influence for this piece was the work of Paul Lasaine; most notably his water studies created for the animated film Surf's Up (as seen here). I am truly inspired by his work and hope to be awesome like him some day.
Although there are definite flaws with the final work, I am proud of the style the characters took on, as well as the humorous twist to a traditional tale . I learned a ton technique-wise and can't wait to put it all into practice. Who knows, perhaps there will be a whole illustrated series of mother goose rhymes in my future...perhaps.
