So I was scribbling gestures over the weekend and eventually hit one that I liked and decided to keep refining it. I tried a lot of new techniques this time and admit I was a bit outside my comfort zone. I went for the more painted look rather than the cell shade, even though I have a huge soft spot for traditional cartoon mediums.

As we can see, this is a piece for my main character Arlo. I wanted this to depict a happier moment in his life considering his character is deeply troubled in the head. Losing his dad, a troubled relationship with his mom, and unable to completely relate to his brother keeps him in an alienated spot, contributing to his depression. This shows a brief moment where all those thoughts have drifted away. Unfortunately for Arlo, nothing lasts forever.
