animal 100!

Animal #100... a zebra with a balloon! A bit anticlimactic, eh? Actually, on the page the zebra appears on, I have to draw 100 balloons. Oh, joy. I just couldn't face that. I am thinking I will make a group of 5 balloons, and then copy and paste them around till I have 100. Photoshop to the rescue.

I actually just got the sketches back and see that there are quite a few changes on them. Mostly larger balloons for the text to go in and things like that. Out of 100 spots, you have to expect they will want to make changes on some of them. That's just how it goes.

Since I switched to the new Blogger recently, I now have the option of Labels. If you go to the sidebar and click on ANIMALS, you can see ALL 100 animals on the same page. Cool beans!

well, geez! 100, huh?! no big deal! :-) I've been enjoying all the animals...I've got a lot to learn.

I can see the dread in drawing 100 balloons. Good ol' copy and paste will come plenty of handy.

Congrats on arriving at 100 animals. I assume this is for a Scholastic book. Oh, parachutes weren't invented yet, so that's not an option.But I'm sure Keno will think of something. Actually,he already did. I just finished writing it.

Simple as this seems the red and blue lines together really jazz it up! Great work.
