The secret of the forest

Hello again! After many days (I should say evening) of work and despite the busy period at work, the first panel of the theater project is finally done. Here is the WIP and the completed drawing. Enjoy!


I should add that the fox and crow are a homage to Pit's great grandma and her famous rendition of the ages old tale of "Le corbeau et le renard". When my husband and his sister, Pit's mom, were children, she used to tell the story to put them to sleep. Things did not really go as she expected. She would start the tale in french "Maître Corbeau, sur un arbre perché, Tenait en son bec un fromage..." and then she would promptly fall asleep with great merryment of her audience. It's a sweet family memory that we all want to share with little Pit...and here is my contribution. ^^
