Rick & Morty is an animated TV series aimed at adults and I guess older kids or teenagers - there are some very dark subjects and scenes. The show has developed a huge followed. I only came onto it recently after loads of people kept sending me memes and talking about the show.
A quick scout around on the internet reveals a massive amount of fan art dedicated to the show so I decided to make my own one.

The characters are rendered quite simply and to be honest it wasn't all that hard to draw them freehand, but I wanted to make sure all the tiny details were authentic and accurate to the show.
The whole piece was drawn and coloured using Manga Studio Pro, including a final layer or airbrushed shadow to enhance the 3-D shapes - something that doesn't appear on the TV show artwork and thus could be argued is my own spin on the characters.
Some appreciation on Reddit/BJJ.
