Pépe the Lobster

Hey, this is a nice little progression of a lobster character I'd been working on and then inked up at Justin's place during our drawing jam session yesterday.  I really want to start finishing/coloring my pieces 'cause I've been pencilling and inking for so long but doing very little coloring, or vectorizing, if you will.  But I'm gonna try to do more of these finished pieces.  

Hope y'all like it.

Jesse, that looks fantastic! Wow...are the black lines in the finish, right from the hand inks, or did you redo those lines in Illustrator? Very clean..amazing how you went from that sketch to this finish - I guess it was a productive day! Nice background, too. This guy could be the mascot for a team or company!

Hey thanks dude! Um, since the days of Streamline are pretty much over, I did scan my inking in, but alas I had to re-ink it in Illustrator. So sad that hand inking is almost a dying art. Oh well, as long as the finished piece looks good, I say. Yeah, it was a productive day, that's why we should get together more often!

What's truly amazing is that he did both the sketch and the inks while blindfolded!

Seriously, excellent job! It was kool watching you work on it....and I agree we should get together more than once every two years.

HA!! Blindfolded and hands tied behind my back! So I drew it, inked it and colored it up in Illustrator all with my teeth!!! Shit, talk about talent!!
:P
