Wild Things

Hey everyone! A while back I had the honor of being asked by Cory Godbey to contribute to the site, Terrible Yellow Eyes, a blogsite comprised of art based on Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are. TONS of brilliant work already there. Well I finally found the time and courage to work on my piece! Hope you like it!

Heres a step-by-step for those interested, mostly my mom .

Fun! I like how you improved on the sketch and modified the position of his arms... they form a heart that frames his already heart-shaped face. :)

Hey Bobby! Have you considered signing your work? I love this so much that I decided to save it to the "happy things" folder I have on my desktop and I noticed there was nothing to mark it as yours besides changing the name.
