Quokka- McQubbin

This one is based on Frederick McCubbin’s iconic painting.

Quokka, issue 704, February 4 2010- McQubbin

For those of you interested, I painted the background using some semi-transparent brushes in Photoshop. I drew the foreground quokkas with pen and ink, then coloured the lines in photoshop… I figured leaving the black lines in wouldn’t sit right with the painterly background.
