My little Koala is sitting on the ground infront of what I hope can be mistaken for a eucalyptus plant (techinally the leaves are not the right shape but work with me please).
Here is what just the background looks like:
I hand cut the dirt/sandy ground. The "eucaluptus" consists of various leaf stem dies that I cut in a light and dark green sahde. I then inked the leaf edges in darket green and inked the stems in brown.
