I painted a crap-ton of these before Christmas.  I used the same technique as here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417245.msg4935317#msg4935317

It was more work than you'd think trying to draw all those animals... my drawing skills are a little rusty, so I did lots of erasing.  I like how these ones turned out... although I had two attempts at painting bears that were too embarrassing to post here  Undecided ...

These are wonderful! My favorite is the birds but they're all great. You're a much better artist than I am  Grin

Adorbs!  Where did you find the images? Did you draw them first then transfer? Love the images you chose...these are really cute and love them all.

Beautiful work.
The birds are my favorite too. I like the green background, did you use wood stain, acrylic paint or something else?

You got it.  I draw them.  ;  I reference photos... and then make them a little more illustrationish.

I used water-based wood stain from a company called SamaN.  They're a Canadian company  Grin
