Panda Day is a special day dedicated to those adorable giant pandas and raise awareness of the endangered status. This illustration shows a cold and frosty night in the mountains under a moonlit sky, where a panda is helping her young cub to climb a tree.
This was painted as part of our World Wildlife Days Challenge using Adobe Photoshop and a Wacom Cintiq, and is also part of the Starlight Safari Collection.
The brushes I used for the snow, frost, and some of the hair were created by Aaron Blaise and can be found with a plethora of goodies and tutorials over at https://creatureartteacher.com/ where I bought mine.
A timelapse video set to music can be watched via our YouTube Art Channel (It was originally uploaded to our first channel):
The timelapse speeds up the screen-recording many times, condensing hours to a few minutes.
