Just did this today :) It's my dear mascot, Squid, pointing (supposedly to an 'Enter' sign) in a funky manner... ;) hehe... inspired by jap illustrator, Falcoon. That guy is just sooo cool.

2cool, Najd--> thanks y'all for the comments! Much appreciated!...

Vudu --> I created Squid (during my last few months in school) before i even heard of Falcoon. It's Falcoon's posing and coloring style that I tried to imitate.

here's his website (there is some, er hmm, nudity in there. so be careful, ne.). He does many fighting game characters in addition to his own personal work. and even stuff from Jo-Jo's bizzare adventures....

FHP-Color (

Wilky --> Yesh, Squid's got squid legs on his head... practice more and you'll get ur own style! whoohoo! :D

PsychedelicMind :: a-ah! now i see :) I looked thru Falcoon's site... his figures lack proportion and scaling sometimes. But never the less - cool coz they have "the mood" (or how do u call it)...

BTW ur pic reminds me some graffiti-style sketches (Can2 in particular)... ... ...

I'd like to call his way of drawing "stylized proportions" :) itz disproportionate on purpose, and itz cool the way he warps the perspective around his characters. :)

what's Can2?

11 November 2002, 02:21 AM
Can2 is german graffiti writer... THE MASTER so to say :) :)

11 November 2002, 07:18 AM
