these are pretty good

These are by David De Rooij
They are solid, meaty and maintan Jim's feeling very well. He's hired.

George's mout is a little too symmetrical in the one above. Hard to tell in Jim's rough, but if you squint you can see the mout is higher on the right and then connects to his lower jaw. (Jim has two different mouths there on top of each other. One sligltly open. Either one would work.


George has a bit too much hair here, but it's a very observant cleanup and preserves George's meat well.This one by Aaron isn't bad either, though a tad o the wonky side:

Hey john did you want me to ink Jims original drawings? i wasnt sure if you wanted me to clean it up with a pencil or ink it in illustrAtor or flash or something. Because if thats what you want ill go head a get that done

Did you take a look at my cleanups?

David Holm said...

These are definitely damn good.

Deemo said...

Yes I do animate

OK ill keep practicing, an go over everything.
Just let me know what you want me to do im a hard working guy John.

Aaron Paetz said...

Thanks for the chance, John. Congrats, Dave. Nice quantity, quality, and speed. Have fun working with John and Jim!

(If you need anything John, let me know. I'd like to figure out how to make em, less wonky.)

John, will the new George Liquor program be on it's own website or on YouTube? Almost all webshows outside of YouTube fail after a few episodes, so the Y'Tube hosting precaution should be taken. You can host the webtoon on both YouTube AND it's own site, like Happy Tree Friends does.

It will be on Heavy.com

SoleilSmile said...

Aah,so HERE is where you were accepting tests! Oh well, I missed the boat:)

Congrats Dave! You are going to learn SO MUCH in such little time! Be a total sponge and drain the experience or all it's worth. You'll be a feature quality artist after a season on this show.
Gambate!

Aaron Paetz said...

I don't have either. But, you can contact me at:

redheadedhwnerd@yahoo.com

I know it's long and obnoxious, but, it's all I've got. I look forward to hearing from you John.

Thanks again,
Aaron

Hi John, here's another
cleanup I did.

Let me know if there's any spot for me. I can draw and animate directly into Flash.

Captain Napalm said...

I think Aaron's is cool because it adds a bit of extra flair. It's not as spot-on as the others, but I like it.

David said...

Thanks all and especially John!!

John, what's going to happen now, are you going to email me with details?

David said...

John, my email is tisdaaf@hotmail.com

Hryma said...

Morning hair, all pushed in different ways? Love the feet, Awesome, very nice David! George being such the man he is I feel scared to say he looks 'adorable'.

Jeremy Brooks said...

Hi John. If you need any additional help with cleanup I would be happy to help out for free. I would just like to gain some experience in the field. You can click here to see my attempt at one of Jim's drawings. Thanks.

Jeremy Brooks said...

Thanks for the critique John. I'll keep working at it.

HemlockMan said...

Wow! Someone got a job here! Very cool!

Hi John,

Here's a link to my attempt at cleaning up Jimmy. Hope I'm not too late!

I'll try some of George Liquor's poses real soon.

Congrats John and Dave, if that's how the final cartoon's gonna look, it's damn near a masterpiece.

Dor Isaac said...

Congrats John and David. If that's how the cartoon's gonna look, you're going to have a damn masterpiece.

Williaint said...

Nice work, but there is something about them that seems... forced...

Hammerson said...

Hi John,
here's my first attempt... sorry for being late this time. I will add more drawings later, and I'd love to know if I'm on the right track with this one.

My practice blog

Mitch L said...

Congrats David. Nice job!

I just made an ink of one of Jim's drawing as well.

Posted it on my blog:

Lynsey said...

Congrats David!

I gave one of Jim's drawings a go aswell, along with a bunch of inks of your layouts here

Sven Hoek said...

Their drawings might seem forced, but the smoothness will come with practice and repeating it over and over, which they will get the chance to do now. Congratulations guys and good luck!!

You can trust that John K. knows talent when he sees it.

David De Rooij is showing great potential with his drawings!

Best thing: he is a great beer-buddy and the better-half of Scagnetti!
