Oh man, there's no way in hell that I can rank on a good cartoonist. I'd KILL to be able to draw in a simplistic, but more precision format, like you do. Because four years ago, I was one of THESE people.... http://rpgwfan.atp.cx/?id=10315
And I would have rather not wanted to go through the phase of akward semicorrectness, that I STILL haven't graduated from. That when you're a cartoony cartoonist, just doesn't come along as fiercely with... (It's more dignifying, as I see it)
Practicing a more cartoony style would be so gratifying now, if I wasn't completely chained to what I've locked myself into. I can look at your art and say, "That is god damned complete" while I look at mine and say, "another few drafts might smooth it out to decency"
And Ian McConville cheats at art. But given what I saw and heard from him at Otakon last year... I'd imagine that he's had nothing but time on his hands for it...
Fred's style is gorgeous, until you reach the face, which is incredibly simplistic. The more I look at his faces, the more I'm glad I didn't go through a phase where I copied drawings of his. Though, he IS a draftsman by trade, which means that he cheats at art, too. ^_^
Have you ever thought of drawing, while your ARTIST writes for you? Or even just writing for yourself? Your work is sharp enough to tell people that you are more than just competent.[/url]
