current mood: creative

Yeah, that's a nutsy title. XD Completed a few pics! So I thought I'd pass through and show 'em! No crits, please...I worked too long 'n' it's too late! o_o

A funny idea somewhat derived from a convo I had on here a little while ago.

A jewel heist went down, and everyone's headed to the graveyard to see where Ratigan's henchmen hid them. It's troublesome, especially with the freezing rain and under-dressed fellows!

Colour and everything! The composition and lighting and everything on the second one is really neat. And the first one just makes me laugh! The world clearly needs more GMD comics.

Hilarious! XD This reminded of the animated Lydia and Beetlejuice having a conversation. She asks him, "Beetlejuice, don't you ever change?" meaning his attitude. He looks down at his striped outfit and says, "Hey, I like this suit!" Yes, Basil and Ratigan have worn those same outfits for almost twenty-five years now! XD Very nice artwork on them both, very funny too! :D

The second one is totally dynamic. I love the colors, shadows, and illumination effects on it all. A graveyard is a nice, eerie setting too! ;p Only one minor thing I don't particularly care for is Basil seems a bit too heavy-set, almost close to Dawson's figure, when he's supposed to be as thin as a rail. It's mostly his chest and upper body that seem to make him more broader in appearance. Heh, my one thought to this is he got so scared, he puffed up! XD Brilliant work, wonderfully done! :D

You're welcome! I know, huh? All those characters wear the same clothes all the time! One joke with a character (can't remember who) had a whole closet full of their outfit, all identical. Maybe that's what they do sometimes? :D

Ahhh, ohhh! Okay! So, he's making a run for it! XD Can a mouse even puff up? Maybe I should have said 'fluff' up instead, like rustled fur standing upright! ;p I know, he's so adorable, scared or not! :D

Dress! You reminded me, went to go look it up, and I was right! Smurfette was one character that opened her closet and she had a row of all the same white dresses! Charlie Brown once opened his closet to various colors of that striped shirt yet he's always seen wearing the yellow one! XD

Okay, thanks! That's awesome! :D Are these pictures up at deviantART anywhere? I was thinking of posting a notice at my Facebook community page, The Game's Afoot, to have others come over to look at your wonderful art here. As it is the poor Rat Trap doesn't get a lot of attention. Would it be all right if I let them know? :)

Beetlejuice had a huge line of striped outfits too, I think. Lydia even said something about giving some of it to charity, but he wouldn't budge. :P

All right, it's been posted! This poor place gets quiet a lot and it's been around for a long time, for as long as I've been a fan of TGMD. I have tumblr, but I'm still trying to get used to it. I'll add you there! :D
