Made this as a backpack and tee-shirt design for a Threadless challenge.

New style with fewer colors, fun to do: I hope to try that stuff again.

So would I, it's actually vaguely inspired by one of my favorite places =)

Thank you!

I wish I could live in this picture. The hedgehog! The fox! The snails, the birds, the hills, the colours, everything. Perfection.

Otto (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 11/6/2013 09:19

Great! It looks very retro to me, something between 50s and 70s

MikauKahn (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/14/2012 20:00

 Thanks :3

By the way, I love the expressions on the hills. It's probly the best part of this for me (other than the art style and colors, of course).

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 2/14/2012 19:26

No problem =)

MikauKahn (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/14/2012 18:48

 Do you mind if I use this color palette?

I'm not going to copy the style, but I'd like to practice and someday come up with a winning palette myself.

Il y a si peu de couleurs mais c'est tellement riche visuellement *o*

C'est du très beau travail (comme tout ce que tu fais d'ailleurs) et ça va me donner l'occasion pour un premier fav *clique nerveusement*

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/10/2012 14:14

As soon as I saw it I thought, "This would make an awesome print!" I'm glad that's what it'll be for. :)
