Surrounded By Cows

This is an illustration for a collection of stories from our readers about bad camping experiences. One of the readers' submissions told about sleeping out under the stars in a field, and upon awakening in the morning they found themselves surrounded by cows! I think that's a great title for an adventure story.

I'm not happy with the composition on this one. It's not well-designed and there are several awkward overlaps in there that flatten it out. Bleh.

As an excuse I offer there was not much time to work on this, although such simple illustrative concepts should be second nature by now. Ah, well. Here is the original quick sketch: (Don't blother clicking on it, it doesn't get any bigger...)

I doodled it quickly on paper and then held it up to the camera on the iMac, and then drew on top of that in Photoshop!
