Ha ha! Brilliant! That's my favorite turtle of all time Shane. Love your spin on this theme. The siloueted characters are terrific-- really add to the anxiety Hare must be feeling.

Joe Fowler said...

Look at Shane! You are going all out with these multi-character posts.

Do you even have a job?

I love the turtle as well.

Blogerts said...

Sweeeeet. I love the turtle character design as well. Excellent, as usual.

it oozes with character

It's almost arrogant to draw those lovely characters in the background and then make them so dark, fabulous drawing.

I tremble to post after such an exhibit. (nice antlers on that deer)

GhettoFab said...

A brilliant image, composition and lighting is great! Definitely feel sorry for the hare here though, the tortoise has such an evil expression on his face and those guys behind him are definitely working in on that, hehe.

But I guess the hare deserved that ;).

Wow, Shane, that is an amazing piece! Subtle animationy depth! YOU RULE!

This is brilliant Shane. I love how this tells the whole story in one go. Awesome many times over.

The best part is the turtle's dark glasses :)

I love it, Shane. Nesquik's brother has a gambling problem, I see. He should have stuck to the chocolate milk addiction like his brother. This is one of my favorites of yours!

It's hard to say anything that won't make me sound like a teenage girl with a crush on you right now (but I assure you I am neither). Fantastic work!

Words cannot explain how awesome this entry is.. I'm sorry it took me so long to comment, but I have to say, you really delivered on this one. The lighting, character design, color, concept... It's all there. And that tortoise has such weight... I keep expecting him to push the glasses back up on his beak.

I'm feelin' it, dog!
