Red Hood - shadow puppet prototype

I'm working on some shadow puppets based on the Indonesian tradition of Wayang Kulit, for the Red Riding Hood tie-in on Luckily I have the 2 puppets I got in the market in Bali. The piercing is really way more intricate than this, but I've simplified it for a lot of reasons.

More soon.

more on the theme of mermaids

Did more work on the Nile guardian from this post. I cannot believe how long it takes me to do detailed watercolours. One of my art heroes is PJ Lynch and I wonder how much time he spends layering his illustrations. Also I should think through my light sources more carefully before I start to fill in everything.

Here's something I did ages ago but re-scanned. I lost all the data on my other computer when it crashed, including the files for my yakuza mermaids. Still one of my favourite ideas.

This is also an old one, but I don't think I ever posted this anywhere.
