I drew this second comic about berries disappearing in my parents’ garden after my last visit:
I finally got around to colouring it in today. I still have a long way to go with learning how to colour and draw plants and backgrounds. This is good practice, and takes a lot longer than it looks.
I think I rushed the colouring a bit this time, but I loved putting in the different greens.
Here’s the original panel with all three images:

I went to see my parents this weekend, and they have the most amazing, giant garden full of colourful flowers and plants, fruit trees, berry bushes and butterflies.
Earlier in summer they had rhubarb, gooseberries, red currants and black currants, and now the plums, raspberries and blackberries are ready to eat, while the grapes and apples are ripening.
However, you have to be quick, because sometimes a brown and fluffy beast with a sweet tooth got there first!
*Update: I noticed my comics can be a bit hard to read, at least on my screen, so I’ve uploaded the individual images here as well:
Don’t look directly into the eyes of the berry thief, or he will make you feed him.
He fears nothing, not even the prickly branches of gooseberry bushes!
