This weeks prompt on Illustration Friday is 'Contagious' and for the first time ever I've actually had something already that is perfect to use for it. This piece I did about 8 months or so ago now when I started playing around with painting again but it's still one of my favourites. The pictures are supposed to go side by side with each other so that the doctor is shining the torch into poor little Ruby the hippo's mouth. I really like how the mouth came out in this pic and I've actually posted the first picture before, it was my very first picture I posted when I started my blog. This was done in acrylic paint. If I were to paint this again I'd probably try to make my hippos a little less like teddy bears. I still like them though.
