Comic Strip Animals

The Digi Choosday Team has a challenge to make projects using 2 images together and for Family/Friends.  Of course, it's always Anything Goes for all of your entries; so come join us for a chance to win some Polkadoodles digis!  

Being the overachiever I am, hahahaha, I decided to combine 4 different images with a sentiment from Polkadoodles Too Cute.  My goal was to put it into a comic strip setting with the animals sort of 'escaping' the setting!  (I saw this idea on Sandy Allnock's blog and was enamored with the idea.  She has a template there, but I decided to create my own to fit the animals.)  This was so fun, I can't wait to try this again with some different images!  

The animals were all colored with Copic markers.  Once the coloring was done, I masked them out and the backgrounds were done by sponging inks over the different squares.

Now, I'll admit, those silly monkeys really seem to be taunting that poor little elephant!  I guess, he really needs to hang in there with friends like them!
