I really, really want
to be real.
But it probably won’t be.
Which is far, far too bad.
Art-wise, big changeup today as I try out some stuff. Lots of Walt Kelly studies going on right now, playing with thicker linework, more hatching, bolder blacks in the background, and a surrealist color palette for BG elements.
I’m having fun with it. We’ll see how much of it sticks.
The big character change is pupils to the eyes, which I decided to try so that I could more easily get some extra expressions (eyerolls) and because controlling gaze with little-orphan-annie eyes is really hard.
Let me know what you think, if you have an opinion.
