Yeah, the number of times I'm going to post is getting higher each time I return to this! Argh. I can't believe I got so much done today and yet I feel like I'm making no progress. Basically, last weekend I'd started doing the face -- no hair! -- based on existing Disney cartoons (he looks very Disneyesque, doesn't he? I am pleased with that part) but I didn't have anything else done until this morning. Now I have...well, look, I'll show you because it's really starting to shape up but try to remember this is a work VERY MUCH in progress still!
I'll post this and
then get more coffee, maybe twitter around a bit, do anything but look
at this for 10 min. then come back and delight in how far I've gotten. I
hope. What do you think?
The circle in the right hand will be the keepah if I can ever figure out how to make it look. The left arm, bent in the foreground, needs to have one of those bent back hands that says "surprise!" (it's a Saturday Surprise post, isn't it? *LOL*) You know, palm out, fingers splayed, like a stop sign. He keeps looking effeminant when I do it though. Grrr....
I've now created and deleted a new layer on top of those framework lines TWICE. Three times's a charm, right? Soon, my tweets, soon.
p.s. aren't his feet hilarious? I can't tell, are those some kind of super-futuristic sneakers or what? Hahahahahaha, I have to laugh at myself. I'm just no good at hands and feet. Eyes, yes. Hair? Check. Baggy arms and legs, sure. Six-pack abs...only with luck. I got his V shape right though, give me credit for that okay? Then you can laugh at those feet.
