One Last One for 2009




Okay, it's kind of a redo but needed something I could play around to explore some things. I definitely locked down some things stylistically and finally find a really nice enriched black that I liked after a long struggle.
A frustrating point of doing 'cartoony' stylized work seems to me to be that unless it's very detailed visually, or the content is weird or 'deep' people don't seems to even take more than a 2 second look and move on. Simpler fun character based illustrations of the past by people like Roy Nelson, V. Partch, Devito, or Gene Hazleton have gone to the wayside save for the animation community or cartooning afficionados.
