Holdin' Out for This One

You ever sit down to work on a project and magic just seems to flow from your pencil and everything just comes out perfectly on the first pass? If so, post your name and address in the comments so I can come and hunt you down. It just doesn't happen like that for me. It took me three to six passes on each of these characters (not counting all of the wood-shopping just to figure out what I was doing) and I still sort of want do another pass, just to fix a couple of little problems I'm seeing.
Anywho. This is a character line-up for a story I'm calling Hero! until I think of a better title. I did this for Jake Parker's Character Design class. It was a great class and I look forward to taking a class in comic book design from him next year! I promise that I'll have something great to post for you before Christmas.

nice work Jake! Love the line up, the vilian's shapes in particular turned out pretty cool. You really can't go wrong with adding a little bit of vincent price to work

I'm particularly fond of the man in black with the glowing gumball. Or is it a jovial jawbreaker? ;)

Actually, I think it's more of a malicious marble.

You are making me want to pull out a particularly awesome book made for me by a young artist who will remain nameless... yes, I think that will happen today. A nice walk down an animated memory lane is just what I need! :)
