Extremely clean characters, they look straight out of an art book. Such a great physical presence on all your characters, they exist right there!

Hey Wayne
been good man, thanks for asking. Super busy lately, I'm doing storyboard cleanup and revisions under a very talented guy named kyle marshall, and a super cool show called Jimmy Two Shoes. Also doing menotr on the side, unfortunately not finding too much extra time to do my own thing.
To answer your questions about those lines, I've been practicing those for a long time, basically just done in photoshop with a tablet and the brush tool, I try to get everyline in a single stoke, as opposed to doing little strokes. I do as much as line weight as I can with the brush, and then I go in with the eraser tool and smooth things out, it tends to give it a crisper look.
Stiill trying to master that techniqe, I really want to try cleaning up an animation with it. Anyways buddy, thanks for the meassage, wat u been up to?
