Motorbirds Illustrated: Skipunk Motorsuit

This is another "semi-clean-up" design of sorts, I just coloured the rough sketch. One can see still all the scratchy lines etc. BTW, this here was a kind of warm-up thing too, I'm again on this skicat character, so I was toying around with it a little.

  1. BRILLIANT! Where can I get that suit!? :)

  2. I love this :D your styles amazing ! :D

  3. What if you were to keep it semi-rough? Would it sell? To me I think its beautiful.The rough line has always been a favorite.I think the best looking animated features Disney put out were 101 Dalmations and The Sword in the Stone.The xrox stuff. It would be great to see your work animated in that traditional style.

  4. Derek, man! Thanks!

    ieuan! Cheers!!

    Tony, thanks for the smashing feedback again!! BTW, I think the same as you about 101 and The Sword, the colours, the sketchy Xerox lines, those are MY movies, too :)

  5. I agree. The scratchy lines have more life than cleaned up ink lines.

  6. Cher ami, c'est vraiment drôle et tellement vivant. Tes travaux sont toujours un vrai bonheur à mes yeux.

  7. I love seeing the under-drawing, and the finish is gorgeous too.
