The King; Legal Ducks

Update: Allow me to introduce... The King: (Through and through inspired by the same-named character in Mark Twain's original story)

And here're the legal eagles ducks:

J. and A. Drake. Lawyers from Duck, Duck & Waterfowl.

Those two drakes are very, very loosely inspired by two real life lawyers. A former elementary school classmate of me and his associate. (Well, they, the real ones, don't look or act like ducks, of course. They just have, hopefully, a good sense of humor. At least in this case...)


  1. Great drawings as usual, but what pencil do you use for clean up? I can see that it is a Faber Castell clutch pencil, but what hardness of lead do you use? Thanks!

  2. Bomb! These guys are so crazy good. Great character design.

  3. Andy, Derek, THANKS!

    Andy, I use a Faber-Castell TK 4600, 2mm HB lead and some common Rotring, 0,5mm HB lead mechanical pencils.

  4. wonderfull hand!you will linked too soon

  5. Man I love coming here. Inspiration galore. I love the Lawyers especially.
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog Florian and for the kind words.

  6. So, ich muss mal wieder meinen größten Respekt zollen, für dein Talent! Du hast einfach auch so ein gutes Gefühl für Bildkomposition und Farben! Alles Liebe aus Ludwigsburg,

  7. Amazing work, Florian, I love the Duck Lawyers! what a crazy idea! I enjoy so much navegating through your blog, always such an inspiration.

    Congrats again!!

  8. Cuack!, cuack!, cuack! amazing... you put the real personality on each character..

  9. Schön kauzig, die beiden - und mit Gimmicks, das mag ich. Man könnte sie eigentlich auch zusammen in einen Mantel mit vier Ärmeln stecken.

  10. At first I thought they were siamese twins!

    Very nice green ducks, Sir.
