IF: Grounded

Ground Squirrel - Illustration by Paul Zdepski
A Well Grounded Squirrel
This is a continuation of the Children's Story I'm developing about a certain squirrel and his issues. Here he is, a well grounded squirrel, thousands of feet in the air, but never more than three feet from the earth.

Drawing is Graphite, then cleaned up in Photoshop via Wacom Cintiq. I'm sure it could use some detail in the cliff-face, but I'm rough coloring the drawing for Illustration Friday's entry. I hope you like it.

Very cool. I like his house, he must have a great view from that window :)

The colors are soothing and peaceful yet upbeat. They suit the happy expression on Squirrel's face. Very nice!

It's wonderful! Do you create the story from your illustrations, or the illustrations from your story - or some of both?
