More Jim Smith Clean-ups

This one was already pretty clean (I think i screwed up on the top of the fridge door though >_<)... there was a little note on the original saying "This is great", and I agree!
Tried to fix the arm and bible on this one
Didn't really like how this one tured out -_-
His mouth kinda confused me here. You can really tell the difference between Jim's beautifully drawn right foot and the left, which I had to draw the toes for.
Thought it might be easier to ink if there was a clear distinction between George and his surroundings.... *shrug*

Jim Smith Clean-up

How's it looking? I tried to skip straight ahead to Illustrator at first, but found that it looked better when I traced it in blue pencil beforehand.

(As you can probably see, I started to draw him with a fez rather than a nightcap - whoops!)

'Nother George ink

I love the layout drawings of George on John K's blog - I couldn't resist trying to ink one of them.

Y'know, it's amazing the flaws you notice when you post stuff - namely the thin lines for the legs and feet. Bah, there are probably a load more >_<

George ink, take two!

Crappy take one.

Improved take two!

Here's my second attempt at inking George. Personally I think it looks much better, all thanks to Amir's inking advice (cheers Amir!) - what do you think?

George ink

This is a drawing of George John K gave to Amir to practice inking (and like the dirty low-down thief I am I swiped it for my own dark purposes)
Here's Amir's inking of it. I made a point not to properly look at his until after I made my own attempt. Look how great his is!! Super contrasting lines, the nice lttle details...and the shoes! Just compare the feet on Amir's George to mine and you'll see what I mean....

This is my attempt.


ARGH!!! It's like I was afraid of thick lines or something. His feet look like... like... I can't even think of a fitting comparisons for those mushy looking things. And he looks pretty mushy overall.

So...more contrast with lines... and better feet. Let's see how the second one turns out.

Oh, and it took me just under an hour to do.
