Strange Behavior (Illustration) Entry: Alon Chou


It’s looking fantastic!
The anatomy of the servant pouring the drink is beautiful.
I don’t know which of the king’s expression I prefer, both have that comedic touch , but the first one is definitely more slap-stick comedy.
Lots of great work so far!


you’ve got great painting skills, obvious that its very natural to you. Also I like the humor in your concept. I’m really enjoying this thread…


Thank you all my friends!

I integrate all your comments, I think the pose and angle of the king first one is better,
but he have to be exaggerate and shocked a bit more,
and the first servent’s face is more funny, I think I got a good conclusion from you!
Thank you mate! hope to hear more adivice form you, thanks!


holy~didnt see this coming.nice and funny concept ,i really like the characters expression,ur exceptionally good in this:thumbsup:
dang~i wish i have time for the challenge,havent been updating mine for awhile…:stuck_out_tongue:

nontheless,i will keep lurking into ur thread for more updates:)


Hey Alon

WoW, I love this. very powerfull Characters. I have just one little sugestion, maybe the lord break the cup, for display the angriness of the lord. anyway, fantastic idea and progress, one of my favorites. all the best!


Hi Alon, exciting concept and the application is very well done especially mimics are superp.
I’m watching the progress impatiently. Cheers!


Hey guys:

I let the king’s face more shock and his eyes more big, not so anger as before,because that’s happened in a very short time, at that moment I think he should be shock at the first, and that will be more funny.

and I add some scar on his face to make him not only anticly but also horrible, it have to let viewer feel that the most worst thing is happening.

I also alter the servant’s face and pose, the face is more like the first one before, but more exaggerate than that. thank you mate!


This is realy excellent, great facial and body expressions.
Only one thing bothers me, what is servats hand doing above kings head, because glass is in front of servant?

Waithing for next update




the servant want to pour wine for the king, king hold a cup for that, but the goddess make fun
of him, raising the servant’s hand to pour wine on the king’s head.


Alon - This is by far the funniest expression for the king so far. I laughed out loud when I saw it! :slight_smile: The only thing I would worry about is that the now the kind is less threatening. He’s more silly, less fearsome, and I find I’m not as worried about the fate of the servant the way I was in the first try. How do the other servants’ shock work with this new face of the king’s? We can’t see them here.

I think the first pose (your post #24 & #25) was the best so far at conveying anger and threateningness, but it was a bit unrealistically stiff. In those earlier posts, he had something in his hand, a scepter or staff. What if you added something like that back in? He looks like a warrior-king… A giant sword in his hand could help him look menacing again, even with that shocked expression on his face. Anyhow, just an idea… I’m really enjoying watching your iterations on this! Good luck!


It is true that the king looks less fearsome in this specific moment, but who knows what could be in a minute’s time? Their expressions are all magnificent, love both the king’s shock and the goddess playfulness, and the servant’s expression is perfect, IMO for someone who doesn’t understand why his own hand is acting strangely.

In short… I love it and will definitely stay suscribed to your thread.


every facial expression you created here is awesome, I think you have done something like a timeline; every piece shows a part of the few seconds it takes to pour the wine over the kings head
the last pic shows the very first moment, but your first version shows the king at the end of the process, when hes really pissed of and crunches the cup because of his anger...thats the coolest moment I think
hope you know what I mean, can`t describe it better^^


Hi mate! thank you for all your comment!

I am glad that you laughed out loud of my work this time, concerning the kind is less threatening, it was really bother me, but I think his fearsome can be expression by other way, as you said just like put a sword beside him or other things, maybe the other servant’s facail expression or pose will tell about how fearsome is this situation,even thiugh that’s not easy, but I will try again. anyway if the pic will make people laughed and feel funny that’s important for me.

I think you are right, who knows what could be in a minute’s time? before, I want him very anger, but considerate funny and at the first moment, I make him more shock, and thank you for you like all their expression, I realy do many effort for make them more lifelike, thanks Thaldir!

sure, I know what you mean! thank you for you mention about the “timeline”,
and I will take more time to think over that.


Alon, maybe make the left eye smaller and looking more angry. The eyes are both the same size. Maybe this helps making the King more fearsome. A sword would help too, or a mummyfied chopped off head at his feet… heheh :smiley:


I’m absolutely IN LOVE with the facial expression and the movement! i will look through the thread more thoroughly later,


I think the servants expression is perfect! The kings is getting there I would agree that it should look a bit more angry. I would do what Art2 suggested about making the one eye smaller then the other as in closed more like he has a twitch…lol and maybe he could be crushing the glass in his hand as this is happening? That way he still has a look of shock but also anger.

Other then that perfect!:eek:


I think the facial expression are just right and to me it seems that the poor servant, is bound for a world of pain once his master recovers from the initial shock. Great work so far.:thumbsup:


Hi Alon, I must say badass. One thing with timing,have the drink end the flowing on his cheek. Other than that awesome. Her being a ghost vs human makes things more interesting.
Good luck.


Superb !!! that’s an excelent piece of work:thumbsup:… :applause:


Hey Alon, hahahahahahahahahahah, great expression mate, really fantastic!! :applause: I think that is a cool comedy touch, and the strange behavior was mainteined perfectly, really great!!
Awesome work like always!! Cheers!! :beer:
