My baby's gone like a flame
Put out by the rain
Water down the drain
Little face, little feet, little hands in my mind...
The sketch here has a bit of a history - I started it in undergrad. I want to say October of second year. Four years later, I dig up the half-finished base lineart on an airplane between Calgary and Toronto. I had no other blank sheets of paper. So I began noodling around with this awkward, ancient lineart around Thanksgiving. And now it's finally finished.
Northrop is my adorable firefaun. His tail burns as brightly as a Charmander's. Lighting dreamgates and deathdoors. It seems he's taken in interest in painting the little hands that crawl his way. (Changed his colour from red to blue-green on a whim - it matches his Rift incarnation).
0.3 mechanical pencil (sketch), Photoshop CS5 (colours), and a pack of blue fruit roll-ups.
