I watched Ernest and Celestine last week and it is my favorite movie that I have seen all year…It made me weep happy tears like a dumb little baby. I possibly might have a weakness for mouse characters too. (Rescuers, Secret of Nimh, American Tail, Mouse Guard, The Great Mouse Detective) I also added a slight Monet reference in this piece. (If you know what painting I’m talking about *internet high five*)
For the past two days I’ve been working on how I want this comic to look. I went from watercolor to ink/digital and back to brown ink and maybe brownish digital tones…Now I have a headache. Le sighhhhh. I have more scrap images, but these will do for now.
It’s been six years and I’m still drawing Tumnus. It was also my first doodle post on tumblr. The concept art from the movie and illustrations from the book is probably what got me into taking illustration as a serious career in the first place.
