Pug and Bunny in Wonderland
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.
