Sketches, Stories and Other Stuff from Tom Ruegger
Because the children of the damned weren't scary, being unarmed and of average strength and all...
Have you ever tried applying your flat style to these characters?
These guys look pretty flat...remove the rim shadowing, and they're basically flat. So that I understand the question better, when you say flat...to what drawings of mine are you referring?
Yeah, you're pretty right about the shadowing thing. These are pretty flat. If you remember a while back I asked you about why you draw some character's eyes in perspective, while some you do not. On that strip, there was a beagle, with perspective, and anither dog without perspective on the eyes, that dog is what I refer to when I say flat.In retrospect, I feel like what i said was disrespectfull. Don't get me wrong, I very much enjoy your styles. Especialy the varying styles in Gone to The Dogs. Whuch, by the way, hosts my favorite character.You do draw flat sometimes, but they are far from being boring on any level.And while we are on the topic, can you tell me what you think of this Spiderman drawing I did?http://www.cognitoalconfanart.blogspot.com/2010/09/abstract-aracnid-man.htmlIt was for a contest where we had to put our own spin on the character, so I went with abstract vintage look.
Jesus, Tommy! This scene looks like the movie Children of the Damned (1995, directed by John Carpenter, having the late Christopher Reeve in the cast)!
