30 Day Art Challenge, Day 14!

Day 14: Draw your favorite book character.

5.5" x 8.5" ballpoint pen on sketchbook paper
The Hunchback of Notre Dame is the most depressing work of fiction I've ever read - but it's also one of my all-time favorite stories. Quasimodo is among my favorite characters, whether portrayed by Tom Hulce, Lon Chaney, Charles Laughton, or Anthony Hopkins.

I wanted to tidy up an older design I'd made in 2011 for my Costumed Figure Drawing class, based heavily on Hugo's description from the book. 

Technical pen on sketchbook paper.
Photoshop vectors with stock photo for background.
This 'final' illustration is something I want to push myself with, but I'd prefer to draw the background when I recreate it.
