I finally watched How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World a couple of weeks ago. And, of course, Toothless reminded me a LOT of Izaak. So…
I had to do it. First, the pre-sketch, and then a main sketch.
This is the preliminary inking.
And here’s the whiskers and eyeshine. I still have to do the second inking, base colour and texture (obviously)…but I am excited to finish it and see how it looks!
Like 90% of the world, Björn and I watched the The Mandalorian a few weeks ago. and the minute I saw Baby Yoda/”The Child” sipping a cup of bone broth, I knew what had to be done.
So far, it’s just at the sketch and ink phase…I am trying to decide how I want to colour it. The green of Baby Yoda’s skin is almost the same colour as Izaak’s eyes, but it won’t look as much like Baby Yoda if I colour it in sepia tones…so I am still deciding how I want to finish this. I also have an untested idea of doing a pale green background, with an overlay of sepia ticking.
I need to think about this. Stay tuned for the finished version!
