Little Star

This is little star having some me-time in a quiet corner of a very big forest.

It hasn’t been very apparent in my artwork up till now but I absolutely adore rats. If it were possible I would have many many many pet rats. I can’t have rats right now and I miss that so I’ll be making up for it by painting them :)

Rats washing themselves are ridiculously cute and I had to do one 🙂

The Sleeping Goblin Guard

A sleeping goblin guard - Acrylic paint on A4 paper.

Here’s a little painting I did this week of a goblin guard who fell asleep on his watch. I like the general atmosphere and I don’t feel too many weird errors have crept in. The rats are my favourite( as always) not only because I like rats but because it was so easy. Didn’t even do a sketch or something I just painted it on. Not something I would do normally but after having had rats for several years I feel pretty comfortable with them. The lantern is another matter. At one point it looked more like a medieval disco or a lowtech Tardis or something. It’s not that bad anymore but still…..  I left the background pretty simple and I’m happy with that decision. One thing I didn’t do but might add later on are the ropes holding the wood of the pallisade together.

On another note, my scanner likes me! I didn’t have to change anything! So happy.
