Blotted!

Sorry for the paucity of posts lately, but, for the first time in quite a spell, I am up to my ankles in work!

Unfortunately, I cannot share any of the details of what I am engaged in (Non-Disclosure agreements and what not). However, I can share the image you see at right. This is a rough sketch for one of the things I am currently working on.
This should satisfy both those of you that enjoy classic comic books, and those that want to see more of my "Work in Progress".

Note that this is a rough sketch. All the proportions, tangents, negative spaces and such will be worked out before I finish the piece.

For those  of you who are eager to know what "tools" cartoonists use, this was scribbled hastily with a Blue Col-EraseĀ© pencil, on 8.5" X 11" typing paper. And yes, that is The Phantom Blot!

More, much more, next time. I promise!

UPDATE: One more image to tease y'all. Is this the first time The Beagle Boys  and Goofy have appeared in the same story? (Wait, maybe they did, in a Super Goof story. I await confirmation in the comments.) For those of you nit-pickers out there: Yes, these characters are way off-model, but it's only my first pass!

Oh. My. God. I am so excited about your covert "work in progress. I will just say, I judge a cartoonist's chops by how Goofy is rendered, and my friend - you are coming up aces!!!!

Thanks Mykal!

Sadly, US readers of this blog will never see the finished piece, unless they are in Europe, or I post it on the blog.

As for Goofy, it is very hard to draw him without channeling Paul Murray. I watched the short, "Lonesome Ghosts" on YouTube way too often, and I thinks the influence of the Goof's design on my image here is apparent. Not that there is anything wrong with that. "Lonesome Ghosts" may be one of the best shorts Disney ever made, and Goofy's line, "For a moment, I thought it wasn't me!", makes me laugh every time.
