That bottom picture is going to look significantly less adorable once that sloth baby bites that cricket's head off. Until then the warm and fuzzies will remain.

He's not a sloth, he's a slow loris ;) and yes they are adorable little venomous killers

Still awesome, I don't even mind the tiny cricket legs in it's teeth.

AW THANKS ♥ I can't say everything I've done is for a cause necessarily but it's great fun when I get the chance to!! Hopefully I'll be working with LFP again or other conservation groups in the future :D

Aw, this is so adorable and lovely at the same time.  I really like the style you used when drawing them with those huge eyes and mixture of a lot of soft/round lines with just a few hard edges.  I also like the simple lighting and shading.  All the compositions and expressions and positions and just everything's beautifully done (especially all those individually-drawn leaves!).  Gorgeous work :>

Thank you so much! LFP loved my cartoony lorises and I can't say I'm a master at digital painting, so I went for a cel-shaded look! I'm glad you think it works :D Maybe someday we'll see a Bunga and Tereh animation!

Oh, I bet they did.  
Digital painting's hard to master, but the cel shading definitely works for these!
And oh, that would be pretty neat-o :v
