Gator Attack

Alligator attack. Hmm, 2 of the last 3 posts have been animal attacks... I think I've been watching too much Discovery Channel.

One thing I tried to do here is keep the lines tight and connected when I drew the gator, basically so it would be easier to select and colorize with the magic wand. But the thing is - I still couldn't select him, no matter what tolerance I used (GRRRR!) as there obviously leaks somewhere. Looking at it now though, I actually like the birds better, as I drew the birds just naturally without worrying about PhotoShop, and they look a lot looser than the gator.
