The Magical Finger Piano by Popsaart The Magical Finger Piano by Popsaart
Hi all! This painting is about a Zulu boy who hides the last remaining leopards from poachers in his magical finger piano, he releases them once the poachers are gone. In return they will have to train him to be a fierce and stealthy warrior like themselves. This was me entry for the Share One Planet competition. I posted Wips and close ups on my blog

Cheers, I hope you enjoy :)

Painted in Photoshop CS2
