As I was drawing him the name Virgil just kept popping into my head. I think it fits. Now if only I could figure out what he's laughing at and put it in a bottle. It could replace Prozac...This was not the original background. It used to be a poorly scribbled green field. Now it's a poorly painted green field with trees and flowers. I used an exacto knife and sat for an hour cutting Virgil out of his bad landscape. Then I used pastels (I hate them, but they have their uses) to make this new background. The flowers and tree trunks were done with watercolor pencils and Virgil was colored with colored pencils. I am becoming very fond of that mahogany pencil...It's such a nice reddish brown. I REALLY think I am going to redraw this. I hate the background.
