My hubby loved the character Death (it's a guy thing) he's also read most of the Terry Pratchett books. In them is a character Mort (Death for those of you who haven't read them).
So one day while he was hunting for skull t-shirts online he says to me "You should draw the Death of Rats" - "SAY WHAT?" I said. He then proceeded to explain Mort has a side kick who's a little grim reaper rat - doesn't actually speak just squeaks.
So this is my take on him drawn as my tribute to Sir Terry Pratchett
He's called Ratty and you can find him on my Etsy shop here.
When I was colouring him my hubby told me I had to do him with a blue eye, so this is why in case you're wondering.
Anyway I've used Copics to colour this and draw a spooky background, then added a little black polychromos pencil to add more shadow.
The sentiment was created at the time of printing. The bats it the background were drawn on with a black biro.
The image and background were just mounted onto some black card to frame it. And I've added one tiny rhine stone for a star just above the tree (didn't quite catch the shine in the morning light)
Hope you love my tribute to writer who will be sorely missed
