I just realized I've never posted this. I did this earlier this year for a cover for The Friend Magazine. Always a good gig. Looking at this again, I'm amazed at myself for drawing so many individual blades of grass. Must have been in a grassy mood that day.
Also, this is another good example of a Photoshop cheat that I like: gaussian blur the heck out of the background so you don't have to spend so much time on details (when it's not important). Saves a lot of time.
