“A friend is very different from an acquaintance. The former is tried and true; the latter only a casual shadow in one’s life.”
Sometimes when I open the pages of my sketchbook, I start the pencil down on one part of the page not sure of what is about to come out. In this case, it started with the head of the big guy, and the imagination just kept wandering from that point. Eventually added the little creature in his shadow, and put a more final line on everything with a brush pen and some other tech pens.
