Neat-o man. I gotta say, there some nice things in the early sketches. The poses and design for the octopus and the barber are pretty swell. Was this a "you change" or a "them make you change"?

SteveLambe said...

Thanks Boob! It was more a "design to support the gag" thing on the part of the client. Having the octopus angry didnt make him feel like a lame superhero, and the barber felt a tad too villianous.

Any other changes to the composition and design was mostly my choices though. Not necessarily the most appealing choices, mind you...especially the superman panel. Weirdness!

Nice one dude, the sketches are awesome. The design of the superman guy rules!!! Gotta love wierd client design requests, it's really does make the world go round!

Awesome! I'm just crazy about the way you draw. So skilled...

Incedentally...thanks for the post on the Col-erase pencils. I didn't have any old ones to compare but I noticed that the lead was shi-tay! Every pencil I buy draws like there's a piece of grit in the lead. I'm happy now to have a company to write and complain to!

Hey Steve,

Long time not chat, great work you got here. I heard you now working at Nick, sweet!! I love your designs man you've really found a style that suits your personality. I noticed in the post just before mine you got spammed with some add links. If you want to get ride of them, turn on word verification. Sure, I know... it can be a pain in the butt however it'll keep you from getting hit by spambots.
