Another Inktober follow up. This drawing was modeled after a Christmas ornament that we have had for years. It has my own spin on it but it really needed some color.
I really wanted the color to feel purposeful, not just a paint by numbers situation to get the job done and make the drawing feel complete. So I did several passes on the color to get some complexity in there and make the colors really change the quality of the drawing. You know, kick it up a notch.
Overall I think the variations in the sky and ocean work really well to push this into more than just an okay line drawing. It sort of makes me want to make a children’s book about this little mouse.
