Coloring Tips:

Rat’s Fur: Start with a base of warm gray or brown for the rat’s fur. Gradually layer darker shades like black or charcoal to define the individual hairs and create depth. Use lighter grays or white for highlights, particularly around the face, belly, and paws.

Eyes: Bring the rat’s curious eyes to life with a deep black pupil and a lighter shade like brown or gray for the iris. A small white dot will add a glint of light and make the eyes sparkle.

Leaves: Try using diverse shades of green to depict lush foliage. Introduce subtle hints of yellow or brown for highlights and shadows. Experiment with different techniques like stippling or cross-hatching to create texture and depth in the leaves.

Branch: Use earthy browns and grays to color the branch, adding dimension and texture to the rat’s perch. Consider using a lighter brown for the underside of the branch and a darker brown for the bark.
