Man, always dig your style. This looks like another fun piece to work on. I like the sketch so far. It reads well and pleasing to eyes. It has that walt disney feel to it. Keep it up dude.

It's really good....but...I KNOW YOU CAN DO BETTER!

Try out a couple more concept sketches before deciding on one, this one is lacking that decidedly 'walrus' feel that we all know & love. Please don't think I'm being harsh, it's out of love that I say this!

Cool concept Mchael!
and those character studies: just lovely, great style you have!

Yeah really cool as usual but as mentioned above, I think its missing that walrus humour that we all love! I'm sure it will still be a fantastic piece though so good luck and will be watching closely!

Wow, there's a mixed bag or replies!

Thanks for the comments, everyone, on both sides of the fence. Thanks especially to those who have the guts to give me honest criticism, even if it's harsh.... Not to say everyone else isn't being honest, as it's not that sucky a piece! But thanks for saying what you feel.

There's still plenty of time to work on new concepts, and as I mentioned above, I still may come up with more. The "funny" thing just hasn't clicked yet... I keep coming up with ideas that are painfully almost funny, but not quite gelling yet. This one at least solidified into something. It's more the sort of piece I generally save to work on in watercolors... So no matter what, I should finish it off one way or another. It's too cute a pose not to use somewhere.

But then again, has anyone seen Matt Dixon around? Is he in the challenge? I'm surpirsed they haven't just made him a judge already, but I didn't see his name anywhere on the list. But so maybe with Matt not here, someone's got to fill in the cute gap...? Ah, who am I kidding?

And yes, Aly, it's the good old blue col-erases at work!

I was about to ask, "What land is this where all the girls are naked?!"

Jokes aside, I really like your first concept and your sketching abilty is second to none. Can't wait to see what other concepts you come up with.
My eyes are open, yet I continue on dreaming

Something I do when looking for inspiration is to look through a dictionary with a sketchpad at hand. It works, try it!

You can do it, Mike...I know you can!
