The Eyebrows Have It


This is another in the orchid comic series and I feel pretty good about them. Thanks to a certain Illustrated Ghost's feedback, they look better, the style is more consistent and (I hope) the big wrinkles or problems have been ironed out.  Thanks, man!

The interesting thing about this one is that the character's eyebrows make it work, make it lively, interesting and amusing.  When roughing the cartoon in, I didn't do much with the brows, but when I looked at it again later, I promptly redrew the brows to make them more expressive.  I think it's funny that one guy looks tentative and perhaps concerned, and it is funnier still that the other looks almost hostile about the other's messy companion.

  1. I have no idea why I get any credit for how great this drawing is, but -- I'll take it!

    Very sweet drawing! Maybe even perfect! You have drama and emotion (nice eyebrows!) and really clean lines. You've even managed to depict different races effortlessly.

    The best thing for me? The flare you added to your voice balloon. I've never seen that anywhere before and it looks really good. An added, confident flourish!
