Topic #115: Cabin Fever
oh yeah! great title. This is really nice. I wondered if you may have used reference for that helmet...then I thought, no. Shane is above that. the tiny hands are great.
I always try and use a reference- didn't realise it was frowned upon! Lovely weight to this illo Shane, love the six-pack (wonder if haggis tastes better if it's cooked in the such a shapely sheep's stomach?)
First of all, tight drawing and creative creature! He sure invokes some kind of emotion, I'm just not sure what. It's funny to imagine this guy in different scales: If you put an ant-sized human next to him versus shrinking him down tiny and standing him next to a person, there's some hilarious possibilities there :D
Love the face, and the cape... very "punny!" classic Shane!Awesome design.
Great, of course! I love all your stuff, your characters all have such great personality and you've really got an authentic "Disney" style down. As Nathan said, the tiny hands are great as well as the little legs. I really like the goatee too!....I also use tons of reference for ispiration and ideas when researching for a piece or character. That's probably obvious. I guess I'm a loser, but I already knew that. ROCK ON!
clarification for the world:reference is good. please use it. It was a joke for Shane.
Cool. I love his teeny little hands. Wait... would they be feet still? Hooves maybe?Anyway! Very very nice :) Sweet dinged blade too!
I forgot to say I love the cape too, the thickness of it, like a yoga mat. It's a nice original solution for cloth and adds to the character design.And I should've known Nathan was just joking, sarcasm is just so hard to detect on the internet from people you've never met before. I'll shut up now.Again, great ram, man!......remember Ram-Man?
Nathan's right... no reference. That's how I roll. That's why the ram doesn't look like a ram, the helmet probably has a thousand problems, and I can't draw a gun to save my life. I drifted far off the course of accuracy when I got into storyboarding.Thanks, everyone.
I thought that Bryan Beach wrote "I like the goatee tool", but he wrote "goatee too!" I was thinking, "Man, I wish I had a goatee tool. I'd be puttin' goatees on everything. Where do you get that?"
This guy somehow reminds me of the He-Man guy 'Ram-Man'-- only Battle Ram is cool, and funny! I love his expression, as if to say, I couldn't even get a helmet that fits! As if he needs a helmet at all. Good one Shane!
Sorry Nathan- as the most sarcastic man in the world I should have realised that. Still there are times where using your memory of what something looks like can give you an interesting twist.
The expression is great, Shane. And the tiny apendages and axe handle are a perfect contrast to the bulky guy. The cape adds a lot of weight to him too.
Hi-larious, pardner. As a fellow eschewer of reference materials, I applaud your bravery.You are the kind of annoyed looking characters. How do you do it?!!!
