Shadow puppets

“I’m… gonna make…” Hawthorne said, his tongue sticking out the side of his mouth as he bent his fingers into a complicated, unrecognisable shape, “…a dragon.”

Another illustration from Nevermoor, in preparation for the third book that I’m looking forward to. I’m currently playing aroung with my ‘poor man’s Cintiq’ – a repurposed HP EliteBook. It’s about 12 years old, 2 GB of RAM and was running Windows Vista, but it’s an early model of laptop with a screen that folds to turn it into a tablet, but instead of touch, it uses a pressure-sensitive stylus. I couldn’t update it to Windows 10, so I put Linux Mint on it and drew this with the amazing ‘Krita’, which I think beats PhotoShop in terms of brushes.
