Very good! I liked it!
I even feel nostalgic for the days when I read comics (good times ... good times ...), Fella's face this pretty scary, but I liked it!!=D

Thanks, Andréia! Yeah, Fella's a passionate guy-- he's like a combination of Harlan Ellison and Daffy Duck! :laughing:

rapidograph Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2012  Professional Filmographer
... I certainly will consider it, I only have a few heroes in the art world who I feel are worthy of their own comic strip, I just never envisioned myself to be the one to share them with the world...

SRaffa Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Professional General Artist
Well, not as such! :laughing: There should be, though!
Make sure to check the scrapbook at the ~Tangentialists page, though; and here's a cut and paste:
Comic strip tales of artists living their artistic lives, with the emphasis being on innovation-- innovation being synonymous with deviation-- not necessarily famous artists, and the artist in question can most certainly be your own bad self; I just want the stories to be as true as you can make them...

... I have a few in mind but don't know if I have what it takes to do them justice... for reason I can't explain right now, I've been suffering from a lot of self-doubt, my paintbrush has become exceptionally heavy these days...

Write the thing up, Gary-- just kind of smash it down into a notebook, give yourself something to argue with; and if that engages you further, break it down into matchstick-people panels; take it as far as you feel happy to, and then show it to the ~Tangentialists, where someone can either pick up the passed torch, or give you any advice required to finish it up on your own... :iconspeczeagerplz:

:iconiloveyouplz: OMG SAM this is brilliant - the first panels, horrific and . . . . blackly humorous with his contorted face. Poor Toulouse, I never knew. Amazing details :iconsqueeeeplz: I love the strap monsters, your incredible line work and shadows. What an awesome concept. I'm thinking of a couple worthy of this devious project, if only I could get the time . . . woww . . . . Diego's next? :eager:

:icontardsloveplz: The DREAM of this project is to get artists of your caliber (and Diego's!) to participate; just keep it in your head, and see if maybe something grows from it-- it would be so great to see something from you on this...
Thanks for lookin, pal! :iconhappycriesplz:

Very nice job =)
But this story really looks like a HP Lovecraft novel :lol:
Fella has a real demonic face, madness is a classic of Lovecraft and even the time where the story took place is right for this author.

I really like Lovecraft novels, but I'm not really sure that it fits with the message you want to give.
