If you ever read the book “Pinocchio”, you’ll discover that he was a very bad little puppet, and there are lots of dark twists and turns for him. My mom first started reading it and said “You’ll never believe what he did to the cricket!” and after I read it, I wanted to draw the scene when Cricket first lectures Pinocchio before getting hit with a hammer.
I went with darker “spooky” colors to reflect Pinocchio’s character. I don’t draw a lot of indoor environments and found it challenging and delightful. I am happy with many of the elements, and am looking forward to drawing more scenes.
