The Dwarf With An Axe

I wrote a Children's book last week. Which I'm very excited about, I've been wanting to Illustrate a Children's book for years now, but I just wasn't coming up with any Ideas.
Then last week I had struck upon some inspiration and I wrote a 25–26 Illustration story.

The Story has Three Protagonists, and this is one of them. I drew quite a few iterations of "The Dwarf" until I finally got the look I wanted. It was just a little sketch, trying to figure out what he should look like, so he's a little expressionless and, I'm not exactly sure what he's doing.

I've been exploring different ways of Coloring my drawings, trying to figure out how to get "the look" that I imagine in my head onto the screen. This isn't exactly it—but it's a lot closer than my previous attempts.

(I know the image and composition are kind of dull, I was just working out what the character should look like)

I Tried Something Different

I wasn't particularly happy with the colored piece from yesterday. I plugged in my Wacom and tried a different technique. It's still not exactly what I was going for, but it is closer to what I envisioned.

When I drew him, his skin was green in my head. When I colored him yesterday, I used a plugin that helps create the Flats and it randomly assigns colors to different fill areas, and the blue that it picked for the area of his head was appealing to me, so I left him Blue yesterday—and I went with green today.

I Drew this little Guy Yesterday

Then I Colored him today, It's not exactly what I wanted, but I was happy that I found a way to color the lines.
