Illustration Friday _ Safari

Wow, great topic.
This is a small section of a larger illustration i did for course work some time ago and it tells the story of two friends reminiscing on a great journey they had had together. Let me know if you want to see the rest of  the illustration and I will post it.  Kindest Regards Janet


Thanks for the request guys, can I say "by popular demand...." sounds nice and feels good even if it is a large exaggeration :-)
Here is the illustration in its entirety.

The brief called for a cow who finds a friendship with an "unlikely" friend - a type of bird - and depict what they find out about the world around them and what they see as they travel around together. 
 I chose to show their adventures together by depicting what they did across the four seasons. I capture them at the end reminiscing on their wonderful times. The space at the top was left for text (specified amount but shape not specified).  
I really enjoyed doing this one. Well... i actually enjoyed doing them all :-)
