Ok but this has taken a while! I did the sketch, it was all nice - then I got very ill :,) So ill that I couldn’t do any sort of digital for days.
But I recovered ahaha, and I finished >:3
I still have lots to learn with greyscale! Especially when it comes to lighting and shadows, but I think each piece I do seems to get better
As for the piece itself, I was partially inspired by a friend showing me some art of another French character (a dude called Raspberry Mousse Cookie from the Cookie Run fandom) as well as the episode “the three Smurfketeers” which is, at least partially based on - of course - the three musketeers, a French tale. (Also anyone who remembers the mickey mouse version is a real op)
Painter played a leading role of course, being (in the English version) the only French character XD (I suppose they had Tracker as a main-ish character in Robin Smurf, which is an English tale)
I do love the baron outfit and actually had a bit of an au going on Instagram, hehe ( x guard Poet anyone??) but here I went for a more tradiontal 17th century musketeer costume, with fleur de lis and a mushroom
