A bit on the wide side, Sethos...


for some bizzarre reason, reminds me of the cover or interior artwork for Bone : Stupid Stupid Rat Tales...

I wanted to make the pic as big as possible do everybody can see the lovely detail I put into it  icon_smile.gif

as for Stupid Stupid Rat Tales, well, that one also features a guy being launched in the air while holding on to a rope, I think.

And, Rogan, while I'd love to be able to draw like Jeff Smith, I don't think there are that many similarities between his art and mine...

I really rather like that, Sethos. Nice one - excellent detail, too.

hmm. well, thanks for the compliment and while you are probably right as Smith is mainly a cartoonist, he is an utter genius at storytelling in the comics form. he's up there with Eisner and Frank Miller. panel transitions, flow of story, Bone is utterly genius in that regard. plus, his black and white art is amazing: he is great at "spotting the blacks" (i.e. knowing where to put shadow to make a 2D drawing have depth). the best examples of that are in "Eyes of the Storm" the third Bone collection. the lightning scenes are just fantastic.

different kind of pic, portrait I drew about a year ago of Karianne, the girl in the Celtic department who is often running through my head. Alas, she has a boyfriend. then again, she's also a great friend, so I'm okay with just being friends as well... she's mighty cute though (nowadays her hair is down to her shoulders and blonde, which is less appealing to me for some reason). anyway, here's the pic:



oh, and yeah, the head and body size don't match on purpose, I was going for a bit of a "forced perspective" thing that nearly works.
