The Background For The Panda Bears

Here is the completed panda bear drawing with the mom bear holding her baby.  I added a green bamboo tree background, and a pebble pathway to give this composition more color and interest.

Last week I finally completed the panda bear drawing by adding a bamboo tree wall, and a pebble pathway to the illustration.  It is interesting to compare it to the previous post where the pandas were all by themselves.  Some people like simple black and white drawings, but I prefer a bit of color, so adding a vibrant background made this drawing feel more complete.

I drew the bamboo trees behind the two panda bears.
