Day 34. A hippo in a helmet.

Updated: May 7, 2018

Day 34 and my illustration this morning isn't based on a movie character (although I do love all the roller derby girls in 'Whip It', so they may have been in the back of my mind). I changed my technique a little bit today, I didn't outline everything in marker and erase all my pencil marks...instead I left all the pencil marks in and just painted over them, then put some marker lines in at the end. I think it made for a softer illustration. I'll post a process video on Instagram and Facebook later today where you can see the illustration take shape.

Hetti the Hippo was tired of the stigma hippos had of being big and slow. She decided to debunk the myth immediately
