Here’s a little personal project I’ve been working on last week. The original plan was to start working on a new book, but as I enjoy painting much more than writing, I skipped putting the story together, and went straight to the fun part.
The character sketches:
I was struggling with the fuzzy one a lot, and when I finally found him, I had a feeling that I’ve seen him before. It happens to me a lot that I make something I’m really happy about, and later discover that thing already exist. Here I feared that I was plagiarizing either Tove Jansson or Dr. Seuss. Luckily, I couldn’t find him anywhere on google, so I decided it’s probably fine.
The start of the big sketch:
And with the inking finally finished. (Notice my awesome table)
I always regret putting in so much detail when I get to the actual inking and painting, especially the basket was soooo boring. But it’s worth it in the end.
The final result!
It’s not very likely to ever turn out as a book, but I really like these characters, and the place they live in, so you’ll probably get to see more of them in the future.
Have a nice day!
