Pablito & Galeno

I participated in a Character Design Challenge with the theme of alebrijes, the Mexican spirit animals like you see in Coco. Here is my entry, Pablito with his alebrije Galeno. This was a really fun challenge, and really pushed me to use colors and patterns in ways that I haven't done before!
(And, having just rewatched Coco, I tried to make Pablito feel like someone from that world.)
