In all honesty I still find it a really weird felling whenever I see people draw TY. It’s super cool but it never feels real - Like why are they drawing my characters? I never would have thought when I was sitting down to come up with the designs for some throwaway demo we wanted to do that it would still be around 17 years later or be the most popular thing I’ve been involved in creating (Not counting Star Wars obviously - that’s a whole other ball game).
So thank you little orange rat. And thank you TY fans for keeping it alive in your hearts.
(Oh yeah those are the original pages of doodles I did to nut out Ty’s design. It pretty much clicked by the third page and then it was just working out the details.)
