I love this Exploratorium book. This is my third spread and it's so fun to work on these pages. I like to pick a colour scheme for the little characters and then colour their surroundings true to life. It adds for an interesting contrast. I did a wash with my Tombow Dual Brush Markers and then went in for details with my Polychromos.
I didn't want to cover over the pen too much, since I wanted a more see-through kind of look for the creatures, and didn't want to add a lot of shading, I just lightly coloured each one with my pencils. This is one of those pages I worked on a bit all through September and it was nice to get this finished off and move on finally.
