do something, do ANYTHING!!!

Yeah, it's been a while.

But some things don't change. I still have times of feeling like I can't do anything. So what better thing to do then to do something I can do - draw silly pictures. And what to talk about? Well, whatever comes to mind, and what comes to mind? Well, that I can't do anything, of course.


I hope you'll see more of this chracter and the world he's in.  Time will tell.  

I did something different in this one. The inking was done in Photoshop with my Cintique, but the brush I used was one without texture, but I just kept it really small and sketched and sketched in the lines.  The result (I think) is nice clean lines that look natural. Below is is a close shot of those lines.




I know this is cartoon has lots of those in-jokes and techy terms, and that that might make parts of it meaningless to a lot of people, but I don't care about that right now. I'm sure you get most of it, don't you Mr. I Ghost.  

The cartoon could aslo use more tones.  Grey tones perhaps. I know, I can hear you, sir. Colour. You love your colour comix.  Count yourself lucky you got a cartoon at all!

Looks good!

The lines are VERY clean. I hope you aren't going over and over them -- are you?!! (You kind of made it sound like that in your notes.)

The joke is good (and the situation is familiar!) and the character is instantly recognizable as an old-timey guy. Not sure how the quill and Zbrush fit together but it's fun!

Sorry for the confusion, I don't intend to go over the lines.

Regarding the questions about era that spring to mind with the quill pen and computer/ZBrush, if I do more cartoons and expand the world a bit, I hope this will become clear(er). Make sense?!

Well, then, you should get to expanding that world right away. We want more!


That will be all. Thank you
