Series: The Daily Marker Art Card #26

I’ve reached that point in the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge where the colour-picking bit of my brain is starting to struggle; I am trying hard to avoid falling back on standard colour choices, especially for critters. My first instinct for this was to do a ginger kitty, but I already did that on day 10. Then I thought maybe a grey kitty and a brown dog, but I wasn’t feeling inspired by that. I finally decided that they weren’t real animals so they didn’t need to be the same colour as real animals and made them maroon and lilac instead.

The way this ended up being cropped meant that there was half of a flower on its own at the bottom, which looked a bit odd. It was easily fixed by sketching in some more flowers using a Copic-safe multiliner and while I had it in my hand, I also drew some birds in the sky.
