... Because Barton is the most wonderfully adorable character in a cast full of equally charming characters in Professor Layton.

Watercolour dump

Been playing with my watercolours today, because I just finished inking a page of Fathoms, and needed to play with colours, and didn't want to get distracted by the internet.

So I fired up the fantastic audiobook version of Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot. Which is mindblowing, but that's not what this post is about.

Since I've been sort of absentmindedly brainstorming (while at the same time focusing on other projects - yay for multitasking!), I decided to work out a design for Owlsong's main character as a child. This is it. Some parts of the comic are going to take place in her childhood, so I need to know what she looks like.

Carl Sagan is squarely to blame for this one - well, him, and the fact that I've been thinking about these characters lately. One day, I'm going to actually draw the golem-comic for real. For now, this will have to suffice - a messy, off-colour watercolour study of what is one day going to be an acrylic painting. ... Which will probably not look anything like this.
