This is my intial sketch. Basically, the gist is the one trooper saying "Calm down, with Mitchell manning the radar nothing is going to just sneak up on us." Something like that.

Thought about the submission a bit more and came up with something simpler and more direct.

That is pretty slick dude. I would definitely go with that. If you can get the mood "just right" *muah* awesome.

Thanks. Yeah, just thinking the less explanation and the simpler the better...FarSide basically. Glad you liked it so far...yeah need to nail the characters exactly I think...It'll be tricky.

I really like your style on the first one.

Your rough sketch up is really solid with a lot of nice dimension.

The only shame about the Lion Tiger Bear idea is that your full body stuff is so darn good!

Here is a rough color version...still trying to nail the characters a bit more.

Hey, this look great. I like the lion very much. :thumbsup:

Good luck with the challenge.

Nice dude, my only crit is the tiger seems a bit tame in comparison with the others.

06-29-2007, 03:46 PM
Tiger seems to be a " she " x)

The lion has a great style, that's a nice concept.

Good luck !

I like your concept. The image is easy to read at a glance. It has humour too.

07-03-2007, 07:58 PM
Thanks...yeah, I wanted something short and the trick is nailing the characters...I'm also working on a different format idea...something that just came to me. We'll see how it is received...should have it up next week.

These are a few of the characters that will possibly show up in the final...the concept is the same...but has expanded a bit...expansion on a theme...yeah, that's the idea. More to come this week...and color soon.
