Animation Creator Re-Imagines Sons’ Drawings In Amazing Detail

There’s little that rivals the imagination of a child, and proving that statement true, Animation Creator Thomas Romain has created a series of incredible illustrations all inspired by the brilliant drawings of his two sons.

Based on the original character or creature designed by his children, Thomas then re-imagines their drawing in an amazingly detailed watercolour illustration. First, he conceptualises different ideas for the character before roughly sketching out what will become the final piece. He then inks over the pencil lines and finally brings the illustration to life using watercolours.

Check out some of the phenomenal illustrations by Thomas and his sons below. To see all 68 of the designs they’ve created so far, head over to their Instagram or YouTube channel where they post breakdowns covering every illustration.
