Don't Mess With Texas. (Still a WIP)

on: May 19, 2006, 08:05:12 pm
Original lineart/concept by Frank Jaeger.


WIP Animation.


WIP state (05/20/06)


Current WIP state (05/28/06)


Still some problem areas. The color of the field is a bit dark. I'll be adjusting that. The blue on the character will probably change. There really isn't any blue in the picture, so the secondary blue lightsource looks out of place.

Those lines are spectacular!

The coloring sort of sucks... :-\

I'm very much a fan of the almost appleIIe attirbute-clash subtle blues and red around the lettering. This is a pretty inventive technique. cool.

   I must say sir, I am a Texan, and you captured our likeness pretty well. Bravo to that.
  
   But some parts of the piece seem be left untouched. Be it, they are little parts of the piece, but the right boot seems plain and doesn't hold any of the blue shadows that are shown on the left boot. Also the champagne in the glass seems to be left a little too plain. I could understand this, however, as something that was meant to be left plain, as it would hold true for a cartoon liquid. However, in this case, I don't think it works very well. Maybe a little shine in the liquid could spice it up. Also, the hat seems a little plain at the moment, and it could use some sprucin' up.
***by the way, I just read the rest of the post, and I realized that you wrote that you are still not finished with the piece, which makes everything else I just said redundant....I'm a dumb ass***    
   Everything else definitely overshadows these tiny problems though. I also love the way the vibrant blues seem to aa very well with the lettering, though I wouldn't go so far as to call it new technique. Bull corn aside, I've been waiting too long to see something like this from you. Great job, and can't wait to see this baby finished. Awsome...

I really like this, awesome colours imo. nice and subtle. keep at it.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

uhhh, yeah, I know. Thats why I put that special sentence in italics, in my previous post, to inform others that I just read the rest of the post...kinda ironic though, that one person would call out another for not readin' the post, when he didn't read the other correctly either...By the way, I'm still waiting on this baby to be finished. I like the fancy design of the boots, but I think a true Texan might have some spurs to go along with that sexy outfit....

Spurs. Not a  bad call.

Just to let you know, I am still working on the piece. The background is looking quite pretty. I'll try to update this soon.
