Un tributo a DiTerlizzi que debe tener ya alrededor de tres años. Creo que por entonces las influencias que tenía de varios ilustradores de fantasía eran demasiados evitendes, pero por suerte he logrado desvincularme en cierta medida de ellos, pero conservando algunas cosas.
Este bicho es un brownie en camino de convertirse en un boggart, ya que está robando lo que se supone es un cacho de pan. Algunos ven una patata, otros un saco, otros un gusano...sea lo que sea, lo está robando, eso es lo que importa, y por la cara de pena que tiene, o está con cargo de consciencia, o lo acaban de descubrir delinquiendo.
En fin...

A little tribute to DiTerlizzi I did about three years ago. By the time I was strongly influenced by him and other fantasy illustrators, but luckily I was able to evolve a little bit and took an interest in other areas rather than myth and northern folklore. The fellow above is a brownie on it's way into transforming into a boggart, for he is stealing what looks like a piece of bread. Some people see a sack, others a worm, and others a potatoe. Whatever he is carrying on him, he is stealing it, and that's what really matters.! By the look in his eyes, this brownie seems to feel a little bit bad about the situation, or maybe he's been exposed by who knows who.
Anyway...
