Pug and Bunny in Wonderland

Alice pug just won't stop eating the "eat me" cakes and keeps growing bigger.  Poor orange bunny.  He's already late for a very important date.

Argh, I did this in my moleskine drawing notebook and so I thought it would be better to avoid any water since that paper doesn't take to it too well.  I used my watercolor pencils which I like for smaller colorings, but realized too late that it wouldn't work for ginormous pug.  I didn't like the look of the pencil shading there and so I thought I'd use a teeny bit of water to smooth it out.  Unfortunately it took a bit more water than the paper liked to get the pencil marks smoothed out.  Result is uneven coloring on the pug and some paper buckling from the water.  I think I would've done better if I'd just used straight up watercolors or gouache.  Lesson learned.  I might redo this one at some point in the future.
