These are really good. Your characters remind me slightly of the "actors" in "The Nightmare Before Christmas."

Thanks Tweedle.
The first images I ever saw by Tim Burton (who created TNBC) was a tiny sketch in the Batman Returns "making of" book.
Even though it was a tiny image, it was very influential.
I've since learned that Tim Burton was influenced by one of the worlds best illustrators, a chap called Edward Gorey, who I too was a big fan of when I was a kid.

I saw TNBC for the first time in a long time earlier this year. It's such creative genius. I possess neither the creativity nor the talent to produce the story or the characters. Not to say that I wouldn't like to learn how, but at this stage, I don't. You're quite talented though.

Why the red noses? Is it cold season? :)

(Sorry Blogger was being annoying and forced me to try posting the comment several times, but I forgot it puts the statement with the vague I-wonder-what-she-said-to-want-to-delete-it quality up.)

Periangel - Red noses are there because I thought it was about time I put some colour into my work.
It's interesting that you've noted them as noses as many people tend to think of them as an "L" for loser.
Tweedledopey - When you need to draw or paint or whatever you will do that very thing. I don't believe creativity is a thing we have much control over (well, I don't) and I do believe that if you really needed to do it, it would come.

Tweedledopey said...

I have found the same thing. I find that right now I am better at creating the stories than the drawing part...

(Peri and I know each other, hence the tag-team commenting).

I had picked that there was some sort of connection.
Bring it on I say - the more the merrier.
