This guy was totally OK to send me his favorite image. As you can tell from the colors, he is a bright and eager guy. It was important that I note the scale, as he's climbing on a bit of grass, even though they look like trees from a human perspective. We're pretty magnified here in both size, scale and brightness....but that's the image I got, so that's the way it went down. And yes, in case you're asking: he did project a feeling of being insatiably hungry. So many leaves. So little time before he transforms. I concur.
Communications were a little slower than with other animals. There were a lot of stops and starts, but once the paint was down there was almost no manipulation to the layers.
