Chiquita wanted to highlight the work they do for preservation of endangered animals in Costa Rica. They also donate money for the education of the local children in the areas they operate in, which is what the second image is about.
We had a sketch of the pose we wanted for the sloth in the first image, and had to create everything for it from scratch to match the client approved sketch very closely. The sloth's head was done in 3D by Mikko Lahti, I did everything else. I'm still very pleased by the composition and atmosphere that we achieved.
