So then I went and looked up Claire's story and I was like, "DANGNABIT THIS IS SAD WHY DID I READ THIS?" but then saw your picture and was reminded why. XD
How many kids are they going to have? Dude. Shut down the factory. We have a population surplus and you are not helping.
I am SUCH A TROLL.
With what little I know about Layton I believe this is quite a touching picture. Your new technique that you're using the soft gradient-like shading with the multicolor lines really takes your artwork to the next level. The picture is done to express a good mood. The highlights and shadows add a lot of depth to it in a pleasant way.
I love how his hands are about as big as the kid's entire body. It's sweet. The energy and expressions that you have is so true to life that I believe it adds to the personal feel. And the way you designed the kids looks cannon, at least to me. 8D
This is super cute, though! I love your exuberant style and SEE YOU'RE TOTALLY GETTING LAYTON DOWN PAT NOW for your style. It's getting more natural, isn't it? He's so damn cute in your style, I love it! Please do more! I love how you do his button eyes.
I would love to do a Layton trade with you sometime, if you'd be up for it Feel free to stay no, though! No pressure, just a thought!
