sir trotalot




Meet Sir Trotalot - he likes to ride about all day on his trusty steed, looking important in his shiny armor. I haven't had a lot of time to just draw what takes my fancy lately but I was determined to squeeze in at least one illustration this week! So here it is... I don't really know what inspired me to draw Sir Trotalot, he just kinda... happened!

fabulous job! i love how you did the colors. The horse and sir trotalot (great name by the way) really pop against that background. i think this would make an excellent print.

oh and the design on the sun is really cool- love how you put it in the shield too.

oh one more thing! the texture on the horse is awesome!

He looks just perfect and I think he is quite proud of your interpretation of him.

Aww thanks so much guys! Now that I look at him again I can see bits and pieces I will probably change - but your lovely comments are very encouraging - thanks!

Sometimes it's hard to explain where an inpiration came from and that's OK. He looks great!... and I love the orange and red, those colors always look fab together :)
