This guy is mad-dogging. Sweet texture and color. Thats right, I can see colors.

There's something kind of "Dr. Seuss" about this guy... with about 700% more evil. Great textures and colors. Always amazing stuff, Ryan.

Tom Scholes said...

Awesome dude, sweet concept too. Mad-doggin...

Frankly, I am dissapointed with this one... It is too good and has instant immunity to constructive crits. Great as usual! How else can I say what's already been said.

Ryan, this absolutely ROCKS! Amazing rendering, style, character design, the whole . . . well EVERYTHING! In short . . . Cool piece man.

I love this. And the best part is the fact that it really does look like a Daguerreotype. You have such a great handle on texture. It's makes it all feel so wonderfully un-computery without ever being overwhelming.

Awesome, man! Great little details and a strong personality!
