Show: Inspired by Gravity Falls (created by Alex Hirsch), aired on the Disney Channel
Description: Fan cover for Gravity Falls animated children's TV series. Depicts twin main characters Dipper and Mabel Pines with their pig Waddles standing in the mysterious Oregon woods outside their Grunkle Stan's 'Mystery Shack.'
Artist's Notes: After finishing both seasons of Gravity Falls, I was inspired to try my hand at the setting and characters with a fan art piece. As I enjoy both the offbeat humor and mystery of the series, I wanted to include hints of both. I thought it especially important to capture the magic of the Oregon wood in which the story takes place. Though I didn't want to clutter the piece with all of the creatures Dipper and Mabel encounter, I did hide a few of the quirky gnomes in the bottom left corner.
All and all, it was a fun challenge to translate the show's cartoon style into my own! Hopefully fellow fans will get a kick out of seeing these characters illustrated differently.
