Old Timers by Skailla Old Timers by Skailla
Yay Inkheart fanart!!!:dance:

Oh! how I missed drawing that!
It's been such a long, long time I don't draw these characters!
Yes, Basta and Dustfinger! Even those who haven't read Inkheart series must know them from a little comic I did a while ago, "Inkvalentine" [link]
yup, that disastrous little comic! xD I believe you guys remember it!

But anyways, there are no characters who were more a part of my life than these two, seriously :) I just love every scene with them in the books!
So yeah, your classic scene between Basta and Dustifinger: Dusty pissing off Basta by stealing his luck charm, and running away with it xD
I kind of redesigned them: I made Dustfinger look more like a fox (which, in my opinion, is the animal which fits him the best. Even the author herself compared him several times with one!) and Basta has new colors now :meow: the only thing I'm still not happy about are his front legs (Basta's arms are actually covered in burns, but I couldn't reproduce that on a dog! :ohnoes:)

And when you come to think about it, they act pretty much like a dog and a fox during the whole series! :giggle:

Referenced one of Brother Bear's background, but it came out completely different (in a bad way -_-)

Yeah, it's just that it looks like the knife/sword ends at the contour of his leg, which I find either odd or really practical ^^
