This was a freelance assignment in which I was tasked with designing a beaver mascot for a local newspaper. He will hopefully be redrawn in the future in various poses. I tried to keep the forms simple in anticipation of that.

Back to personal work now! This guy started as a pen sketch that I scanned and then colored in photoshop. Tried some new shading techniques, I wrestled over putting other characters or foreground elements in the composition but I settled on something simple. I'm happy with how it came out. Feels good to finish a personal piece again. Haven't done one in forever it seems.
