Hi, I haven't posted here in a very long time... and thought this challenge would be fun. My character is a 'custodial engineer' by day, but by night he tries unsuccesfully to fight crime as "The Janitor" -emphasis on the last syllable of course. Besides the fact that he's a bit dim, his physical limitations -coke bottle thick eyeglasses, large abdomen and almost complete lack of muscle tone hinder his attempts to capture any wrongdoers. so, he usually ends up becoming a hostage or getting kicked around by the villains. That's all i've come up with while working out these two sketches. Thanks for looking! -don

I must have been having fun, cuz time has flown by....anyway, here is 'The Janitor!' in progress. I still have to add some texture to the background, finish his mop and boots, add a bucket, and magnify his eyes thru the lenses of his glasses.
The rest is pretty much finished. I'll try to get it done tomorrow, so I can start on the new character i came up with; 'the Wacky Iraqui'. Here is the whole image and a medium close up. Thanks for looking. -donhttp://www.donperkins.com/images/posts/janitor2.jpg
