NEW ISLAND GIRL

Updated


Fixed up and cleaned one of the girls from drawing last night, face turned out ok. I'm happy to say i just finished some freelance concept work, now i get to keep some Disney secrets. I thought the work turned out nice, I'd like to have a second crack at it though, but I'm always that way.

I can't stop drawing island girls ever since I saw Cast Away. Now granted hanks character was alone on the island, but if he had some pleasant company I doubt he would have wanted to leave. The tribal paint thing started after watching Rapa Nui, another great movie.

Love your style and the sensibility in your drawings. Your girl is thinking!

holy crap that's awesome. you should do a book of nothing but island girls.

and it can be like those old school Disney "documentaries" with Lester the friendly Mountain Lion, Barney the lovable Bear. Cheesy narration and all.

I totaly agree with Gabriele, you have a GREAT drawing style.
Fantastic work !!!!!!

Thanks guys!

Gabriele, thats cool of you to say, i've been working on faces and expressions lately... blind stares arent good.

Rajesh, I'm so eager to get a book together already :D

Damn, I'm in love with that drawing obove. I look at it at least 10 times a day. Can't do anything about it.

I'd love to see her animated :-)

I came across you blog via John Nevarez's and am I glad I did! Wonderful work, and you certainly know how to draw the ladies, these ones included! I especially love the third one down in the Oekaki post below.

Looking forward to seeing more.
