Comic Illustration - adaptable to change

"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” ~ Charles Darwin

Comic strip illustration - Adaptable to Change watermark
This is the last illustration for the calendar.
Robin said chameleon is the best icon to represent the living being most adaptable to the change.
In stock market, you could be the richest. You could be the smartest. But if you don't how to change according to the ever changing market conditions, you won't survive long.
To survive, you must be able to be a bull when the trend is up, and be a bear when the trend is down.

To be in-line with the 11 cartoon illustrations, I maintain the comical style but realistic rendering here. The chameleon is holding a long and a short knife here. The long knife reflects the chameleon as a bull, while the short knife reflects the chameleon as a bear. The stripe pattern on the branches is added in to show that the chameleon is able to change with the environment around it. With all these setup, I add in the cross-hatching realistic shading style to skin texture on the chameleon, branches, leaves, bull and bear.

Upon completion, to my surprise, that this illustration turns out to be my favourite among these 12 cartoon illustrations.
