But you can call me mom.
Upon my second viewing of Kubo and the Two Strings I knew I wanted to illustrate Mr. Monkey. Beyond the obvious beauty of that movie, I love a good totem. I hope to someday pass down something meaningful, although I doubt it’ll be quite as magical.
This process started a bit different from normal, I had just recently been given an iPad for work with an Apple Pencil and wanted to play around with it a bit. So the illustration you see below the circles was using that. From there it continued in the usual manner of circles, on circles, on circles. The difference here was an attempt to replicate my sketch style with the lines used in the shading.
