Gouache on ACEO
A spoof on Gir from Invader Zim. I haven’t really watched the show, but someone requested him and he’s super adorable.
I created the background effects by starting with a piece of sturdy black matboard. I cut it to ACEO size, sketched the character, and then used the black matboard as the outlines. It’s fun to paint negative space!
