Nice. I like the subtle details on the slothead thingy and you could kinda see the strings go through and stuff. You've definitely done a great job at shading his face though! I still have alot to learn on that. Nice hair too xD

great perspecitiive as well as a great illustration, but damn man you need a background, it would really make the piece pop.

donbenni Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2006
Thanks, have you got any suggestions for the background, i really lack creative imagination in this area.

:iconthelonegunman:
thelonegunman Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2006
cheap and easy way is a solid color or light gradient to compliment the colors of the figure. another way is a simple montage of a detail of either the face or guitar to highlight the work you put into those two pieces of the piece, usually its best to desaturate their background colors

Nice work man :D great angle for a toon like this.
I even like this just as much as you usual car-toons.

Is one of your next 'human' toons perhaps a hot sexy babe? hehe :clap:

No, alas not. Although they do have long hair, i don't know how picky you are... :D

Thanks Nick, nice to know they're going down just as well as the cars :)

Hair wasn't too difficult:

I started with the everything that i wanted to toon as a coloured object; this is my base. The base had a rough shape of how the hair would look. I then added a layer over the base which i used for drawing in the darker hair (was was most of it). This dark layer also contained the hair that falls over his face. Then on the same dark layer i drew thin strands with the pen tool; pretty much just 2 anchor points with a slight curve between then. Then on another layer above the dark layer i used the same dark colour but set the layer to 50% opacity and drew the really thin strands that went both out of the top of his head and over his face. Then on one last layer i drew a few strands of lighter hair. Then later in the production i coloured in the base layer around his head with the colour i wanted it (using ctrl + U).

Hope that helps :)
