An early layout of the design as a collage of images with the mountains in the foreground

Some sketches focusing on Skip
A version of the image with Skip's front paws included and the characters breaking out of the frame
We decided to leave Skip's paws out of the image and make his face a little more realistic.
The initial black and white version of the image in a scratchboard style, created in Photoshop
I added mountains in the background, using a light purple hue to convey a sense of distance.
I then blocked in the main colors
For the final image, I added some subtler shading and highlights.
