The colors are fantastic and the expression is awsome!! One thing though, perhaps you could soften the bubbles around "swing" and "soft" a little more. They seem a little out of place to me. Blurring those edges to make them look more like watercolor rather than acrylic will make a huge difference!

I like the gradients and texture you've built-up in the moose.

Just one thing missing... "Kids, don't try this with a real moose. Okay, maybe just once, so you'll learn" Razz

Looking great, I agree with Amilee. The text bubbles distract me a bit, I would soften them by lowering opacity a bit, maybe a slight (very subtle) gradient from bottom to top aswell for a little bit extra.

damnit, i just said 'bit' a million times.

Thanks for the comments... Smile

I made some minor changes and added a couple of details.

The word bubbles are part of a series of pictures that all have the same word bubble design... I appreciate the suggestions about changes to them... but I really like them that way... so.... Smile

The detail might help give them a bit more credibility. i think they do work well when seen in full size context with the textures evident throughout each picture.

very cute and well done.
It looks a little to close to the Moose from "If You Give a Moose a Muffin"
the sequel to "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie"

Good job none the less

I loved, "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie," but I haven't seen "If You Give A Moose A Muffin." I'll google it...

...wait...

hmmm... The only similarity I see is the small eyes... but they are also treated quite differently... Fortunately I wouldn't call it too close... A moose is a moose - small upper head with large nose and small hind quarters... a moose is a moose Smile
