nice . a little too "brownie" for me though. Like the first one and "lunch with the pigs.
btw , what did you do to the background? I thought the whole paper was brown? you "photoshop" it off?

drewscape said...

yes i photoshoped it off using overlay white on another layer.

the mickey Ears 1 is my fave!!

Like "prodigal.jpg" the 1st jpeg- looks like a scene from a sick porn flick when viewed small :D. Where have u "been: Drew??!! Its floral porn!!

don't see why u must draw on brown paper and then erase it.

I like the 3rd and 4th one. I think the white scratch strokes on the brown is nice.
You're using the brown paper for the texture?

the brown paper has got a nice feel combined with your drawings. :D and tsk tsk chairman always makes normal things look and sound indecent.

i like it now tho, the yellowy bg :-)
u use correction pen for highlightz?

This is really cool. Looks relatively simple at first glance but at closer inspection, you've applied quite a bit of details into the rendering with the texture, the whiteouts, brushy strokes etc. Love the details. I like the dynamic angle of mouse man and the composition and lines of the boy eating with pigs :)

the return of mouseman

thanks for the feedback everyone. wow so many comments. mindflyer your comments post worked. one must be familiar with porn to see it everywhere tho haha. that was a scene from the prodigal son from the bible btw. i used browned paper so i could play with highlights like how san san does it. its not correction pen, its a white ink signo pen. i have to change the name of mouseman, i heard that name used on the radio already! but he's just for fun.

Nice! I like the first one - the perspective and the movement is great :) The highlights and lines flow so effortlessly, looks like you have reached another level of skill! Agree with zeropointfive - still waters run deep!

if the first mickey flying boy is a book cover, i sure buy that book! :-p

I like all of them... especially the details in each. The yellowish tint gives the illustrations an old photo look which I really enjoy too.

Let me humbly say my 3 cents worth.
I think the quality and quantity you draw's awesome. All these sketches instead of just being solo page illustration spawn out of spare time sketching could evolve into a project. I say this because i would really hate to see a good potential sketch just ended and waste away its possibility to grow into something fantastic.
Moreover you had actually spend time in photoshop adding colours and making it looked like a finish piece of work.
I'm sure you got loads of ideas and images in your head that are dying to be materialize. Keep up the good work.
