The Toongate Has Opened Again!

I did this as a commission for someone. This was more challenging than the first given the complexity of the light as it shone through the trees and the fact that there are two characters here.

Cartoon-Live Action Pic

First and foremost, that's not me in the photo, but the person who commissioned me to create the piece. This is a first time for me doing this type of drawing. Sadly, this is not from an upcoming feature (though, I wish it was), but it's something I want to do more often. The real challenge is blending the colors in and adding shadows that require touching up the photo itself. Also, the original photo was darker, so I brightened it up and added a tad of color saturation to match the coyote. I also learned that by adding a slight noise filter, the character will further blend in with the photo.
