Red panda ACEO steps

1. I inked the sketch in black and then painted in most of the panda's colors. The paper is taped down around the edges with artist tape so it doesn't wrinkle. I went over the background with a light greenish yellow. Normally I'd paint the background first so this is a bit backwards.

2. Roughly filled in some darker areas between the leaves.

3. Worked more on darker leaves in the background to give an impression or a full forest behind the panda and started on the tree limb. I wanted the foreground leaves to stand out more so the area around them needs to be darker.

4. Almost finished here. The tree limb requires many layers of color and final detailed lines for 3d bark. Foreground leaves are are painted and details added for leaf veins.

And the finished painting:
