Its cool. I really like the "slugish" creature.
I love your ruff stuff.

BUT, there is something about your current finishing style that drains the life out of your work.

You have a really expressive style in the pencil stuff. Its kinda strange.
I really love those ruffs.

But then something happens in cleaning it up.
Maybe you need to add tones, but I think there is something about your uniform lines....they flatten the stuff out too much.

I would love to see what you can do finishing these up like Eric Goldberg/Hirschfeld thick/thin style. I would love to see some of your stuff finished off more like the Sanders Stylee, or Bluthy, or Even Bakshi-ey.

I love those pencils. there is so much life.
Maybe you can try and do the ink line in a vector program to simulate more of a brush stroke. [Smile]

On the boards thing....the likeness is pretty good, but I would stop using the pencil shading and go for marker for tone. that way you avoid the fuzzy clumpy. you only need 4 markers(3 grey one black), two kinds of pencils and access to a plain paper copymachine to improve your production value 3 fold.

nevermind, I found the thread way down in the deep darkness of AN, seems it's getting dogpiled.

Jeff's Art, aka New Art thread

Eric, it is possible Jeff just hasn't even checked out AN since you started this thread.
So, I wouldn't take his non-reply the wrong way.

While I have no empirical evidence to support my assumption, that possibility is more likely than not. He's preparing to make a pitch, right?.

Now, to help him see this should he check out the gallery soon. I'm doing some Disco Voodoo:

Hey Eric.

How've you been?

Sorry for the delay. I sometimes neglect the Net- Good tips.

His size has improved- larger and more eel-like.

I wonder if I should post any more- someone mentioned the wisdom of secrecy. I suppose since I've already had a first meeting w/no mention of character-driven eels, though, I might have a corner on the eel market.

I agree- that old cleanup was a heavy-handed (back in '01).

Revised the boards, and have a second meeting in a week. Hopefully the interest is a good sign of the possibility of proceeding w/a short.
