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.
