William Steig, 1960s
James Thurber, 1932
James Stevenson, 1972
Feel free to add your own!
Yep, these are the ones.
A quick digital painting trying to capture how cool the sky looked tonight. I didn’t come close, but I like how it turned out nonetheless.
It’s spring! I took a walk in the gorgeous sixty degree weather today and got sucked into Goodwill, where I got this outfit fitting of the season, along with some sweet hiking boots. Yeeaahh thrifting.
I’m calling it done after an ink wash. It’s a bit redundant, posting this image again, but I called it a work in progress earlier and felt it would only be polite to show the finished product. Unless you hate it. In which case I guess that makes me both presumptuous and rude.
No Face’s innards weren’t planned, and I think it shows—not to mention it detracts from the scene. Still, I learned something with those lines.
I’M glad you finished it. I love your characterization of Sen in this.
