African Animal Princess...Commission piece


Well there is a dedicated artist out there, Ben Hennessy, who lives and goes to school in Ireland w/his gf Nichola Kehoe, who is also an artist...Anyway, Ben is also a fan of mine whom I had the pleasure to meet @San Diego Con 2 years ago..Well he came back this year...and while he was busy @ another table his gf snuck over and commissioned me to do one of my "animal with a girl" pieces... It would be a surprise for his bday....She said I could do anything I want....any topic etc... well could I ask for a better commission...such freedom.
Anyway, this is what I did for him and he got the original drawing plus a high end print(digital color) sent to him in Ireland, Nichola had it framed for his bday and from what I heard he was quite surprised and pleased...

So here is the piece I did.....I hope ya'll enjoy as much as he did.....it was a real pleasure doing something for such a kind person as he.....Brilliant he says....
