Tobi and the Jelly Bean Tree by imaginism Tobi and the Jelly Bean Tree by imaginism
Here's a very special and rare little rodent named "Tobi." He's on a search for some fruit from the almost extinct Jelly Bean Tree.

Please help the re-population of the species by planting a jelly bean today!

Watercolor and Gauche on watercolor paper mounted on board.

I like how you created a frame here. However, I think it would be better if Tobi was looking up directly at the jelly bean. It appears as if he is looking towards the right.

The detail on his trunk is amazing. :heart:

He's adorable! He reminds me of some kind of ice age mammal, though I'm no expert on that so I'll just leave it there. A Jelly Bean Tree? I want one! Yummy jelly beans all the time!^_^ Amazing work!
