More Mildew



I'm inkin' and colorin' like mad whenever I get a moments break from "Foster's". I'm tryin' not to show too much, or too many new characters, so here's more of Mildew the bat.

I love to see the ruffs! So neat to see how a pro does it. Do you use regular copy paper, animation paper or do you have a preference?

Please post more stuff! I got a fever, and the only prescription is more characters!

Ahaaa, finally worked out how to comment... finally i can say it, YOU ARE MY ROLE MODEL! your work is fantstic! I was toying with the idea of trying to get into character design and story boarding, and once i saw your work it just sealed the deal. I found you through Danny Phantom fans on Devart, i just love to see your DP storyboards ^.^

Hehe! So when will this book be out? And where could one get one?

Thanks everyone!

Tedrex-I work on animation paper, the smoother the better!

Chris-Unfortunately, I've still got a lot to go. My full-time job takes up A LOT of time, so I don't get much time to devote to "Seaweed." Hopefully it'll be done by this summer. You'll be able to buy it right here.

Michael- Your wish is my command! Done. Good idea, thanks!

Great character! Love the roughs!

AMAZING! I am totally feeling these poses. They look like they've been pushed to their limit making look like an over eccentric. And a very nice simple design to go with it.

Hi Ben!
Your work is just amazing!! I love it!
I'm a mexican penciler and I'm part of a comic studio here at Mexico named ¡Ka-Boom! Studio. We all love your art and, personally, your work is a great inspiration for me.
Your characters are wonderful, they're full of life.
Once again, I congratulate you, and I hope you can see some of our work at www.ka-boom.com.mx
Yours,
Mariana Moreno
