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.


  1. Wow, I like this a lot.. nice work with the cloth drapery!

  2. Yeah Hopskotch have done a few versions of this song. Some of them are titled Steamtrain and others Midnight Express......
