Decided it was time for another terrarium zoo painting~ my little goat in a terrarium from last year has been a popular print. :heart: Now he's got a companion.

It reminds me of japanese Ukiyo-e (woodblock painting). The technique differs a bit but the composition and color palette is very similar. I love the originallity of this drawing and the execution of it. Colorwise, what gets me the most are the color corrections - you had in mind that red object behind green glass have slightly different color. It's a small but important thing.
When it comes to the general thoughts, this drawings takes that huge environment tigers need and compacts it to the small glass terrarium. I would love to see somebody make a maquette out of this. Imagine that as a part of some kind of eco happening, it could impact both adults and the children. Good job on making such an inspiring thing!
