Our final assignment for Illustration was to do a 1 to 2 page comic about anything we wanted as long as it included the phrase "And then I saw it". For some reason I had a really strong urge to illustrate opossums, probably related to the fact that I handle them at the Wildlife Center that I volunteer at. This this what came out of it.

I did all of the line work and most of the ink washes traditionally and then adjusted the levels in photoshop to get the values right.  This was a ton of fun and I truly had a great time doing it. Great assignment to end on!
