  • Great job. @leontine: Leontine will like it, too. :-) @smoke: you should check out Leontines hedgehog post.

    @Jana sorry, where are my manners! 🤔 Thanks for the positive feedback, new here so, hello! 😊 I just checked her work on FB and indeed, I must say that she indeed is a great illustrator as an artist! So thank you! 😉



  • Welcome, Smoke, in this great forum. :-)
    I cannot wait to see more from you. I am drawing just for fun. I earn my money as a biologist. But if I see posts like yours, I start dreaming of an alternative life... ;-) I hope you keep us updated about this project.



  • @smoke Hallo Buurman! welkom! XD Love your illustrations, there really nicely rendered and your use of color is really nice! Can you tell us more about the story? I am working on a book about hedgehogs as well, they are so adorable! There first thing that I notice is the nose of the hedgehog. At first he's very wide, and as the story continues, it gets thinner. on the last one the three has somehow to much detail, although its very nice at itself, objects that move farther away, lose detail and color, may be tone it down a bit? Anyway nice to meet you here, its real fun and there's so much to learn!
    Next time when you're here on the forum bring me a nice Belgium beer and some chocolate will you? XD LOL
