If you had put a beard and a little pot belly on the main character you would have caught me perfectly. Excellent work.
Dang! Knew I’d forgotten something or other there…….Cheers Jim :)

Chris, your art is so very cool! I love this one!
Hi Michael – Many thanks :)))
Oh this poor little chap. I feel so sorry for him in face of those big bullys. You have captured the feelings very well. Bullying should never be allowed.
Thanks Anthea – so, so right….. Sign of insecurity ;)
Great work Chris !! :-)
Thanks my dear! Have a GREAT New Year :)
brilliant !! i missed this one for some reason. how do you do it ? do you start with a pencil sketch? i’m interested in the whole process of how you came to this fantastic end piece.
Thanks Mandy :)Basically a compositional pencil sketch first, yes… After that’s worked out, some separate sketches to suss out the characters designs & poses, which then get redrawn across into the main composition. Of course ten times easier in photoshop these days (and twenty times quicker with a cintiq!), but in painting in gouache (here), I’ll usually lightly ballpoint in the lines before rubbing out all the pencil underneath. That way, a smoother, thinner wash of gouache can be put down before outlining with a brush to finish off.
Thank you Hagen! I’m honored that a professional such as yourself should say so :)))
Just a semi-pro Chris, fortunately, as cartooning would not feed my family ;)Your stuff is great!
Thanks Hagen :) Sadly I have found the same…. Seems the market for cartoon styles is not so ‘fashionabe’ these days. I do it for fun ;) ☺
As always superb detail and line work
Thanks WoolleyWorld – much appreciated! ☺
