Here is the final illo for my Giant Panda. It is going to be the invitation for my sons 6th birthday party that is coming up in April. He LOVES pandas and is very excited to be able to hang the original in his room. The finish was done in pen & ink with Dr Martins hydrus watercolors on hot press.
I am also submitting this as my entry for IF this week - seeing that Giant Pandas (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) are poised to become an extinct species due to continuous loss of habitat and poaching. They are found in southwest china and only an estimated 1500 remain in the wild. =(
