William at the Bakery | Color a Critter Series Video!

William loves a loaf of french bread and a bottle of wine - oh the carbs!  Not to worry, he offsets his intake with 10,000 steps a day, even though it would just be so much easier to fly:

The background is a combination of cool and warm grays along with a B60 and white gel pen.  I added a cobblestone street and attempted to move from a small to large scale fairly quickly to give accommodate William's size in relation to the background.

Carrying the neutral theme onto William, I made him into a sparrow, although he could be morphed into many bird species.  He was stamped colored, and fussy cut separately, but also stamped on the background so I didn't have to cut out his tiny legs.

Here's the coloring video of William.  It's part of the Color a Critter with Copics and Kara series.  You can watch it here or on my YouTube channel:
