Tired, Huddled...






I like the colored and inked versions, but the simplicity of the pencil sketch is sadder somehow. Mainly in the eye, I think. He's a bit more grumpy now. Inked in Flash, in case you were curious.

Your inking in Flash is amazing Bob.

I do agree with you that his expression seems to have changed (ever so slightly) from the original to the finished piece. In the inked version he looks resentful, as if he was just made fun of, and he's huddled in a corner glaring at the bully's.

Great stuff, as usual. Your characters are wonderful original.

...oh, and I like how you've shown the three stages, from initial pencil sketch to final piece.

Awe in the pencil sketch you can still see a tear that had been erased. Great flash inking!

That's funny you noticed that, Kassandra! I definitely had something a bit sadder in mind when I started. You can make out a trace ear that I had in there at one point but edited it out.

In the finished piece, he looks almost angry, like he's watching someone eat a big, juicy double bacon cheeseburger from Jack In The Box while his hungry ribs are poking through his green skin...

I'd be angry, too. Great work, Bob!

Hi, Bob! New blog design, isn't it? It's great. And are you posting more drawings than usual, or it's my imagination=?

Anyway, greetings from the other side of the ocean!
