Dipper and Mabel

THIS TOOK ME 8 FREAKING HOURS AND I AM SO PROUD OF IT! Okay, enough use of caps lock over there. But yes, I have decided that out of all the digital artworks I've done, this one is my favorite.

The characters in the drawing are Dipper and Mabel Pines, twins from the new Disney cartoon - Gravity Falls. It's by Alex Hirsch, the guy behind Fish Hooks {which I thought was hilarious by the way}. The show is about the twins' summer adventures at Gravity Falls, and the mysteries they encounter about the strange town.

I looooooove the show.  I'm a sucker for mysteries and cartoons, so putting them together is the best thing that could ever happen. Gravity Falls is absolutely hilarious and the characters are just amazing. Dipper is my favorite because he's so adorable, but Mabel....is like my spirit animal. She's very artsy and is kind of a spacehead. {Plus, she has sweaters to die for! The one she's wearing in my drawing is my favorite!}

I decided to start practicing with backgrounds now, so I tried it out with this one because I love the color scheme of the show. I'm so happy with how it turned out! I still need to brush up on my shading skills though...

I would very very very much appreciate it if you guys would comment your feedback on this piece! I really want to know what you all think and what I should be improving on.
