marriage of cartoon hippopotamus and crocodile wedding

Painted in photoshop to A4 size, this is another subject where animals have replaced humans in a very human activity. In this animal wedding we see a large, female hippopotamus getting married to a small and perhaps shifty, crocodile. I liked to show humour within the different scales of the participants interacting, particularly wearing their wedding outfits. The guests were fun to do, and helped to create a focal point in the composition. The church door way is a classic framing device in wedding photography and helps to frame the happy couple. Digitally painted in 2011.
