The Tortoise and the Hare

Racing is for sissies.

That is really nice. Fortunately for the tortoise, the hare was in such a hurry to get to the showdown that he forgot his bullets.

and the trigger... and the cylinder is reversed... and there...

Uh, sorry. Good drawing.

S.T. Lewis said...

Thanks, guys. And Joe - there's no trigger at all. I decided the rabbit didn't even need one... that's how quick he is. He'll just run the bullet over to the tortoise and throw it at him. Clearly I'm not the best at drawing guns, but I'm a storyboarder. If you knew it was a gun, I'm satisfied.

Joe Fowler said...

A GUN?! That's what that is?

That turtle is hysterical Shane! Great expression. Good thing he's wearing a cast iron stove plate inside his shell, right over his heart.
The staging and perspective are fabulous. Nicely done Shane!

Peter said...

Yeah, this has great perspective! Way to bring this overly-retold story into yet another setting.

Taylor Krahenbuhl said...

Best perspective yet on all of the toon club drawings, I love it Shane!! I love the colors and the characters, great stuff!!

Swanimator said...

Very well done S.T. Lewis. The "hare" trigger against the armored turtle. Who will win?

Seth Hippen said...

Shane! What can I say? It's wonderful. Although, slow and steady might get you shot in this case...

I can tell you're a storyboarder because your staging is awesome. I usually sacrifice staging so you look at the character more, but you have put great characters in a well-staged shot without taking away from enjoying the characters. That adds an extra dimension to it that I need to concentrate on more in my stuff. I like the flow of the rabbit's hand and arm. I know it seems like just a simple thing, but I think it adds tons of appeal. The knee-knocking turtle is hillarious too. Thanks for sharing! Love it!

Paß auf Du. Gute Kunst ist für Sissys. Nice one Shane. Still holding strong. I like your ways... of art that is.
