"Lost in the Woods"
"Lost in the Woods" with Tomte and Snailee is finished for my friend, Vera-chan, on deviantART. This was my part of the art trade, but of course, it takes me real long to get anything done, always. ^^; Sorry to have made you wait for so long, Vera. Hope you like it. :D
This duo first appeared in my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project 2011 and pretty much took over the entire book. It basically turned into a children's picture book of Tomte and Snailee's adventure. All the drawings were done in biro and colored in colored pencil, so it had the storybook feel. I wanted to give these guys the same softly traditional feel once again, so I experimented with added paper texture in addition to my usual 'digital watercolor' technique. I personally like the finished look. It's simple and ... somehow, cuddly. ^^
