Ahaha I love all your expressions for the comic! xD

I'm a bit confused though, why was the elephant scared of the cheetah?

Thanks!

She doesn't know he's there to help her, she probably just thinks he's another hungry big cat! :)

Welcome! ^^

Oh no I meant I was confused because cheetahs are not a threat to elephants, even baby ones, so why would she be scared?

I think shes just really scared C: Not to mention, she didn't expect him to jump out in front of her! Wouldn't you be surprised? XD

Elephants seem to me to be one of the hardest critters to draw, and I just want to say I'm loving the way the elephant is looking in these comic pages, very flowing and... curvacious! XD People usually draw them so static and angular

Wait... is Irving whistling back at the elephant and going "fwee" or slapping his face and going "fwap?" I'm not reading this on the best monitor in the world...

Amazing poses! I'm continually amazed at how well you loosen up into graphic shapes. (Irving's pose in the top panel - GENIUS. Nothing short of Art Davis worthy.)

Sickly, scrambly, and contains a good sense of panic. I love your layout for this one!
And you complain about your so-called sloppy shading...I didn't even notice the seams on the elephant in panel 3 until I looked closely at it. That's what you're striving for, to make it irrelevant. (And it's fairly easy to blur the seams when exported into GIMP, if you're that self-conscious about it. Photoshop vs. GIMP is like Mac vs. PC or Brasilia vs. Rio - it's a choice between sterile and confusingly simple with dangerous, endlessly customizable, and exciting. ^^)\

I also have completed some sets of Anchor miscellanae for your perusement... [link] [link] [link] Let me know if you can't open that last one, I have no fucking idea how it works.

Haha woo! Working on it :D
And uuugh! It always feels like its sloppy cause im literally like.. slopping it onto the page, but yeah, i've started to go in and smudge out some of the super noticeable stuff!

YES YES YESSS. I think google docs are locked or something,but thats okay, imma just oogle all these awesome sketches! I love how you draw Vince!! I might make a blog or tumblr or something just for Anchor concept junk,which I think I can set up for you to toss stuff onto as well if that'd help, haha

Working and succeeding. Don't sell yourself short.

Trust me, we all have these feelings. The artist feels it viscerally... you're working in the grand tradition of Manet, De Kooning, Rothenburg. ^^ (I've made it a tradition to talk like someone in a sci-fi flick when it comes to references.)
One thing I dislike about using digital art (after a stint with Sumi ink painting) is the fact that you can't change tone or moisture on the brush in the same swoop. So I pile it on, I can totally understand.
(I don't know if I should joke about the fact that I and my friends call those paintings with layer upon layer of couache and watercolor and airbrush and glitter and paint pen and dust "Cumdumpster" type - I do never post them because, unlike the name, they look more like shit.)

=

Made it a "with-the-link". (I always forget to do that).
I actually disparage my drawings of Vince, because I have no idea how chihuahua hindlegs work. (What's his breed, anyways? 75% Chihuahua and 25 Rottweiler?) I do bring up the question of how his ears work in the doc...


0.o That blog thought's actually an amazingly great idea - build up an internet presence, start from the ground up and all that. ^^
Fun fact: When my mom visited last week, I had some of your printed art out, for visual reference, and she caught Pegleg's name out of the corner of her eye - and then a week later asked me on the phone how "this Poco Loco project [was] coming along." It took several questions to figure out what the hell she was talking about.
If we want to make this project stealthy until we have a sizable amount of pitch materials to impress with, we already have one good fucker of a codename.

Hah!

I like how you draw vince! Definitely a chihuahua though!

Might have to do that! Although I'd feel super awks making it public XD
Poco Loco, oh my gosh! Hahaha, that is hilarious! Code names are the best. Go mom go!

Well, it comes onto the page quite strong.

Oh really? I have a few pictures I finished during a Latin lecture this afternoon of...trying to get a handle on the cast - and I find that Vince is so rubbery in both our incarnations (though my proportions are RADICALLY wrong) that he looks really really cool set in environments and objects with perspective and straight lines.


You can always keep it 'shared' and invite collaborators one by one. I feel that if we succeeded, then we don't want to make the gestation of the project public in all its concepts, but in its art. (The CONCEPTS put up for consumer's debate invariably turn into resentment over inclusion.)
Code names. That's what we oughtta name the project, gurl. Poco Loco. Let's do this! "Slightly Crazy," that ain't a bad vibe to project at all.
[link] As a Jazz girl, this is probably what she was thinking of. I actually figured this piece out about a year ago, but my jazz piano skills have vanished since.

WELL.. i've been drawing vince more like you lately, or second guessing myself and getting super confused, good job! Hes basically just a big head on a little body. I need to stop drawing him and Anchor so damn angry all the time though XD His eyebrows work best crunched up cause of the bandana though!

Truee that! Poco loco, haha. So fun!

Thanks to that comment, he's the only character I feel validated in drawing totally off-model. XD
(Took me until last night to figure out how Anchor's head would look in rear view. I'm embarrassed at my models - still can't get Pegleg's head construction to look like the (admittedly two) sketches I've seen from you. Do you draw his brows radiating from the nose, or paralelling the lip flaps?)
And maybe just a few sample storyboards would help achieve the diversity of expressions you so crave? Once you have to draw a cartoon sheepdog walking drunk without eyes or mouth shown, or a Chihuahua trying to look through a telescope, or a cartoon pseudo-semitic swab after spontaneous canine transformation trying to resume playing (on the banodeon) Wham!'s "Young Guns (Go For It)" despite sudden lack of actual fingers... it loosens your hand, shall we say.
Re: Vince's eyes? - some of my sketches show his browblobs either floating manga-style on top of the bandanna, or pushing up chunks of the bandanna - thing is, though, when I push up chunks, it doesn't affect the tension of the bandanna. As in, the line of the bandanna stays in the same place, and the broken contours simply raise themselves, like a manacle shape. That's probably WAY too off-model, but with good construction it's nearly ungiveashitaboutable.


That piece is just such damned FUN to play. Seriously. ^^
I'll search for how to set up a blogger, but the go-ahead is entirely up to you. Let's DO THIS!

I would not worry about staying on model at all XD Especially since they technically dont have a set model. I need to start animating them more to figure that one out. My laziness ends up crafting the perfect design! Or yes, storyboards! I have a few started, at least.

Maybe i'll spend some time working on those this weekend, a better model sheet so you don't have to guess! Although i'm sure your guesses aren't far off. PFf.

Hahahaha, browblobs. I like them effecting the bandana personally. Gah now you've got me wondering how i'm doing things again!
If you're already on blogger then I can add you as an editor to the site pretty easily I think, I'll go do that now so I dont forget!
