WHO, exactly, WAS READY?

I don't know what it means, but I love the drawing all the same.

You work is filled with mystery and enigmas... I just love it. Your drawings are very inviting... they draw me into their own world. I want to explore this world called Dok's brain and see what comes up next... I may not get it, but I know I will enjoy it!

I really like this one Dok.Nice line of action on the pose. Cool Character. A deadly Suydam looking kind of twisted fairy tale denizen.

Dok said...

Thank you both!

I like drawings that imply a context, and characters that seeem to live within it. And I'm a huge Suydam fan - especially with his whimiscal work. One early collectiion refered to an illustrated version of "Wind in the Willows" but it seems it was never really published. Too bad!

And you're always welcome to explore my brain! My advice is to bring a flashlight, a deck of cards and you can practice your yodeling - the echoes are awesome!

Thanks again for your kind words.

I love the arm, perfect for a fine-boned manly-type (kind of an insect Lee Van Clef?); even more impressively, you keep the body type (and characterization) consistent throughout--love the touches like long lower legs, narrow calves (calfs?), small, high butt and narrow neck. The face and arm set the type, the rest of the details support it (gun's scale as effectively as anything).

These are all thoughtful details that I often find myself rushing over while doing the drawing, and then I'm left scratching my head at the end, wondering what went wrong.
