Grandma Badger by Keaze Grandma Badger by Keaze
Carrying apples for her grandkids.

This was a test to see how well I can paint backgrounds. I expected a catastrophe, but now I'm starting to think I actually like painting backgrounds.
My grandma used baskets like these. I was thinking of her while working on this.

Baka Jazavac

S jabukama za unuke.

Ovo je bila proba da vidim kako dobro mogu naslikati pozadine. Očekivala sam katastrofu, ali je ispalo puuuno bolje.
Baš se sjećam da je moja baka koristila ovakve košare. Mislila sam na nju dok sam radila na ovom.

Thanks! When I draw backgrounds I tend to improvise them a lot, but I'm glad it works here.

It's a nostalgic piece for me too, because it reminds me of my grandma so it's nice to hear the feeling got through.

Did you do each of those grass blades by hand? :o
But yeah, the background makes for a great landscape. The lighting and textures are quite excellent too. :D
