Concealeon Malay




Here's one of the main villains from my comic "Seaweed." His name is Concealeon Malay. I posted some early concepts, the final design, some roughs and studies of panels from the book, and one full color panel to show the final product.

Mark you always leave such kind comments, and I really appreciate them!

Cosmicpencil, I'm in the process of inking and coloring the book. I'll hopefully be done in time for comic-con 2007. I'm planning on putting together a big art of book after I get the initial comic published.

Alan, thanks he also flys around in a fully camoflaged P-38 Lightning named the "Thunder-Bitch." Maybe I'll post some of the drawings of that.

Thanks also jeepster, I look dorward to seeing some art on your new blog.

Wow,man. That does it.Dunno if I'm you #1 fan, but you're my #1 hum.. whatever the name of the person who is "fanned" by fan...celebrity?I work for a small animation studio in Mexico city (belive it or not there is one here) and me and all of my workmates look up to you. When there's doubt we ask ourselves "How would Ben solve this one?" I want to ask you to allow me to link you to my blog it'd be swell.
Bet you don't need anyone telling you to keep up the good work cause you can't stop doing it.
Luck.
