# 171: Gratitude

Pig couldn't believe his luck upon stumbling across a luscious strawberry.


  1. This subject seems to always pull out your best. I like the bird's eye view of the white piggy, and its attendant berry.
    patterns are suitably supporting the back, and his expression is right on the mark.

    more piggies!


  2. "… and this little piggie had a whole basket of strawberries, but this little piggie had one …"

    I just knew there was a storytelling lurking inside of you, Alice. At last, it can no longer be contained and shows itself! He is one happy little porker. He seems to be batting his baby blue eyes, as if asking, "Please sir, may I have another?" The foreshortened angle is well done. I like how you've handled the color/shadow/reflections on his form.
