I am out of clever and/or relevant post titles.

(Posted early, as I’m still doing a few last minute things for Comic-Con…)

Another from the commisioned project where I was asked to illustrate a few distinct TV characters. This time, a Sleestak:

Drawn in pencil and inked with a Tombo brush pen and Sakura microns, meticulously touched up in Photoshop to make it look like I know what I’m doing, and then colored (in Photoshop). On the one hand, the lighting on this one is too subtle and unfortunately stops just shy of “moody.” I wish I had taken it further, particularly on the face. On the other hand, I’m still pretty happy with the way I translated the Sleestak into a cartoony style, while keeping it recognizable.

    Dude that is awesome! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a drawn Sleestak before. It’s perfect. I used to love The Land Of The Lost and I’d watch a “Clone Warsesque” J.Ho designed animated revamp anyday.

    charles– sounds like the start of a haiku?

    jamilyn– thanks dude! remember the 90′s version of land of the lost? their sleestaks didn’t resemble the classic ones, but were cool nonetheless…
