So YOU are the one who did the art for my amazing Darkwing Duck comic book? That's one of my favorite comic books, and I'll admit that I own quite a few. I mostly use it to help me draw Darkwing. It really has helped me a lot, so thanks so much for doing such an awesome job on that comic! Would you mind checking out my Darkwing Duck sketches on my Tumblr page? It would be so cool if I could get your opinion on how I did.
Sorry, I got your other note as well. My inbox is getting away from me. Thank you for the nice words and for picking up the books.
You’re off to a great start with the DW art. I get a lot of requests to look at peoples art but what sets your apart is that you are not copying or tracing existing art. It’s flattering when folks copy my stuff but it makes it very hard to critique. You are definitely on the right track by creating completely original art. There are some structural issues which will only improve with practice so definitely keep up the good work. If I had a suggestion I would say break the character down to it’s simplest shapes- circles and lines. The DW model sheets from the original shows are all over the internet. Find those and study how the original artists broke down the structure and put it in to motion. You’ll have my job in no time.
So I've had a mash up concept kicking around in my head for a while and it's gotten to the point that any time you or Amy post anything (because you're both who I think of for stuff like this), it almost always pops right back up to the forefront. Basically it's just a few EVE probes done in the style of the Powerpuff Girls. I can't say it'd be something that interested you, but if you needed an idea... :)
Thank you for the great idea, I appreciate it. Unfortunately I can’t take it. As with most other professionals as well as corporate entities, I cannot take unsolicited requests. I know you were offering it freely but if I do it and someone makes money off of it in anyway you could comeback and say “where’s my cut?”
All the sketch art I post on my site were either commissioned for or were for sale at a comic convention.
Do you plan on doing anymore future comic illustrations, or more comic related art like Disney? Because I seriously think you're the best when it comes to Disney! If you did a fan comic based on the Kingdom Hearts franchise, I'd think that Launchpad, Bonkers, Max and Darkwing Duck would be the best allies for the KeyWeilder's team! (^^; Least in my head though, but I'd like them on my team!) Keep up the great work!
Thank you, I’m glad you like my comics. I honestly have not followed a lot of Kingdom Hearts but I get the general idea and characters. I am however excited about the ideas of interconnected worlds presented in Disney Infinity. I wouldn’t say no to drawing that comic.
Hello! I'm a huuuge fan of your art, especially your take on Darkwing Duck, so naturally I always try to get my hands on the comics! I'm wondering if there's any news on the remaining volumes being published by the LTB in Germany? Cheers!
Thank you, I’m so glad you like my stuff. DW is still my favorite thing to draw.
The Bolognia Children’s Book Fair is going on in Europe this week. Hopefully we’ll know soon what the sales have been and whether the new volumes are a-go.
Out of all the characters you have drawn, which one is your favorite? What's the weirdest crossover you have drawn, either for yourself or for a commission? I love your drawings, dude! Especially all your Beauty and the Beast drawings. Keep up the fantastic work! :)
Thank you for the nice words.
It’s funny, the really weird requests I just don’t do. Usually because there is no context for the characters to be mashed up. I also don’t accept commissions that are overly violent or sexual.
That being said, I think I did this one just because it sounded funny.
I'm going through the list of people I follow and give them some anonymous love, but you have anon disabled so here I am to say that holy cripes, man I love your work and ever single little picture you post on here utterly makes my week. You're just the best. I admire and respect your work so very much (particularly all the Darkwing stuff, Darkwing is nearly my raison d'etre). I hope you have an absolutely lovely day!
Thank you so much. I’m glad I can bring a little brightness to your week. I have no idea how that anon thing works but that’s ‘cause I’m old and these computer things frighten and confuse me.
Also, I don’t speak Mandarin so I have no idea what “raison d’être” means but I’ll assume it’s something good. So that deserves a Darkwing…
I liked the picture you did of your dad. Did you use a stylus to draw it? I'm assume you did it on an iPad or Android Tablet since you said you used Sketchbook Pro to make it.
Thank you. I’ve been playing with that Wacom stylus for the iPad. It’s a little awkward but it’s fun to have on a plane. Lately Mebberson has been playing with the Adonit Jot stylus and swears by it. She also convinced me to download the Procreate app. I’ll try it on the way to ECCC and come back with a full report.
You and your pictures are amazing as hecky. Seriously, I'm in love with practically all of them. Especially the ones with beauty and the beast, harry potter, and the avengers. Keep on doing what you do so well :)
Thank you, I appreciate you visiting my page. This is for you.
Do you know if the Darkwing Duck comic series will be renewed by BOOM or Marvel? Would you work on it again if it did? Loved that series!
Thank you, I’m glad you liked the book. I had a blast doing it.
BOOM doesn’t have a Disney license anymore and Marvel hasn’t shown any interest in Disney books. I think the best bet for new DW or any new Disney Afternoon books is with licensing through a new or existing comic book company.
And yes, I would be more than happy to return to St. Canard (or Duckburg).
