Chalking: The New Portal

I recently worked on a chalk piece for Sesame Workshop.  It was a piece to help launch their new portal.  They requested Cookie be used.  So, here is what I came up with.  See the process below.  

  This is me hesitating to touch a clean black wall.  

 Once I get over the ruining black wall feeling, I lay down my rough lines lightly with white chalk.

Cleaning up the rough lines and putting in an outline.

I didn't know what I was going to do with the fur texture till I started filling it in.  The other option was a flat blue.  I figured I'd challenge myself a little and go with the strands. 

 This is Molly putting in the font work.

 This is the finished piece.  Cookie having fun with the new portal on his new PineApple(yeh, that's what that is) computer.

Here's a time lapse-y video of the process.  Enjoy!
