Feels like a good piece to end the year on, stepping into doing some more original illustrations, had a lot of fun working on this one.

Spent a lot of time at the initial design stage, and really tried to explore the design of the characters and their mood before moving forward to final. Was a fun process and definitely helped a lot with final image.

This image itself was a commissioned piece for Thomas Fitzpatrick's Sci Fi book "The Grimalkin" which you can check out here https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07M5BBQBD
