Hopscotch at midnight

I wanted to do some patterns in my latest illustration. And I found a lot of inspiration from henna tattoos.
Had to play around with the perspective a bit. I took so many pictures to see which angle would suit this design best. I settled on this one.

Here was a rough sketch to see what the character would look like.

Done. Finally! It's a wolf (although it kind of looks like a cat...) playing hopscotch.

But I guess you could say it is little riding hood, trying to find her way home. And walking through the woods; her worst fears are in her own head, hence she is her own big bad wolf.

Scurvy is fun!

I have wanted to do a pirate themed shirt for a long long time. But I just didn't have a theme. Then the subject of scurvy came up not once but twice in class/clinical. Still, this did not draw any inspiration on me at that point. However, while sitting in my Pharmacology lecture last monday, with my attention span completely depleted past half of the lecture, I doodled this:

It was then that I thought of making the pirate into a spokesperson for scurvy. And I knew I needed to work on this ASAP.
