Dad's Rug... by Rainroad Dad's Rug... by Rainroad
Is always warm. :)

Dedicated to my dear old dad, David. :love:


this is My father's day Contest Entry for :iconkung-fu-panda-pals:

By the way, that's Ajacopa's rug that his mother made him before he left to explore the world. doubles as a blanket. :)

I'd say it took a good 6 hours non-stop.
first 2 hours were spent designing the rug in it's entirety, the last 4 on the characters. i may post the rug by itself later :meow:

Welp, I decided to quit moping about my long lost wacom tablet pen and kick it old-school. meaning i do it all using my stupid mouse thing. my hand hurts.
I used only one brush, then explored textures in photoshop to see if I could get a weave effect. I found a SUPERAWESOME mosaic tile one instead, and the smaller the squares look, the more like a rug it looked. XD

y'all kung fu panda pals better catch up! i didn't even have a pen! and this is one of the few times where i didn't use a sketch first!

I worked so hard :faint: and i'm so proud. :D

hope the judges like it!

kung fu panda universe (c) to dreamworks :heart:

Kicking it old school is a big pain in the @$$...but that being said, this is fantastic! I'd like a blanket like that :D And don't worry, this panda pal is hard at work on his submission entry. I hope to have it done by tomorrow or Sunday.
