Several posts ago I shared with you all a painting I did of the character Momo from the Nickelodeon series "Avatar: The Last Airbender." It was a lot of fun interpreting that 2-dimensional character in a more 3-dimensional way that I decided I'd try it again with another one of my favorite cartoon critters. This time it's everyone's favorite yellow-furred rodent Pikachu from the famous Pokemon animated series.
But wait, there's more!
I'll also throw in the rough sketch that shows how I started this painting. It's interesting because it was originally a very square composition, but that made it feel too claustrophobic for me. So I expanded the canvas but pretty much kept the original lighting and color scheme.
