Done- No more collaboration while I do the ghost stories

I was getting Neal Adams for the last two pages. So I made a style decision to make it as simple and silhouette as I could make myself work.
I like it. Goes along with a recent experiment in high contrast backgrounds I've been doing with Google street view. May be a style I use for a Brubaker - Philips type of tale.

New font. And improved read.

Goodson!! I saw this on Tumblr today and it looks SO. DANG. GREAT. Congrats!!! Really fabulous stuff!

That Googs Street View kluge for backgrounds is quite compelling...wish i had the 'nads to use something like that or Ronnie's Blender (?) cheat on backgrounds. 'Cuz I blow at perspective.

And hey I just saw an email announcing that sample piece you just posted at the Frank Frazetta Roundtable--looks so great! I love that chiseled Goodson goodness!!

I think you're really onto something with this b&w stuff.

That third-to-last frame of the two hands grasping the staff (on the second-to-last page) almost looks Saul Bass'ian.

And is that a pair of panties pinned to the mast???

I like the pantie interpretation. It's a tribal bit of jewelry. With a jealous chain of possession between these warring people.

But henceforth, they are panties. The panties of power.

Thanks Marty. Yeah, I want the google street map idea for something special. I'll share my formula for stark BW eventually if you're interested.

Super-strong visuals! I'm not sure what all the words mean, but the images smack you in the face!

I also saw panies. Is this a Rorschach test?

MrGoodson2 said...

Thanks Rick. I'm sure they are panties now. Weird, magical, Polynesian flavored, tribal warfare based on panty sniffing.

I boldly announce, NO more collaborations! But I have to clear off some freelance and needed corrections to GOSSAMER.

The words on the new version are much more clear and readable.
