Huckleberry Finn (a bit different), Post No. 100!

Update: Did I said Mark Twain meets Lewis Carroll? I've to add Clive Barker, I guess. At least because of this hare. He is a sort of integrated or mutated version of The White Hare and The March Hare in Huck Finn's recalibrated fantastic adventures:



And here are the previously posted pieces:





Mark Twain meets Lewis Carroll or so. (I did this sheet while I was working on the stage design of a Tom Sawyer musical production, some time ago. Since then, I'm loosely working on the plot and some early designs whenever it's possible)

  2. I love that character! I don't think Huckleberry Finn could hold something like that for too long. All he'd have to do it swoosh his tail and off goes Finn!

  7. A Tom Sawyer Musical? Including Dragons? And the dragons were singing? Man, I would love to see that!

    I especially like the third one from top ...

    OK, enough lame jokes. Tom looks like a rather nasty boy. Wonderful expression on his face. Great as always!

  11. Florian which impressionist brushes do you use exactly, i've downloaded the brushes, but not sure which ones you use to do your painting and what settings, maybe if you can have your brushes to download somewhere that would be great too-Leon Garcia

  12. Many thanks to all!! Originally, I wanted the recalibrated Huck Finn take part in the Toby Skybuckle story, but soon it became a stand-alone thing because of its complexity.

    Snowtiger, I'm usually using the standard brush settings.

  13. Florian I just re-read your original comment to james and realized you said plugin not brishes, which i assume is the impressionist plugin you can download from trimoon.com? I love trying to re-create techniques that why i asked about the settings. Now i assume you do your drawing, then take it into the impressionist plugin and color it there? Or do you color then take it into the plugin?

  14. Snowtiger, the Impressionist plug-in operates like a filter in Photoshop.
