Craprogress

Well, I struggled, I tried, I thought, I visualized, and this is all I could come up with tonight. I think the main problem is that I don't understand the character of the Mouser (physically or personalitywise). It seems a lot harder to me to draw slender people than musclebound giants. But it's a start. Now I'll re-draw him on a fresh piece of paper, work out the pose and clothes and everything, and put them together later. I decided he would be using his sling rather than a sword, just to make it more interesting. Strange that they're both using their left arms.,... just another bit of clumsiness plaguing this piece. Maybe I'll reverse him so he's facing away from the viewer, and put the sling in his right hand.

I'm not 100% sure where the ground is... If you're going to do this up, I wonder if some perspective lines would be of use?

(Gretchin and I just went to a local comic book con a week or two ago... There's a guy who wrote a book on perspective who was there again this year -- so the topic's on my mind.)

I know you can't tell from the *crap*drawing, but there's supposed to be a low wall behind Fafhrd, that the Mouser is standing on. After I've got them both positioned satisfactorily I'll try to develop some kind of (semi-abstract) background. It will be suggested rather than fully developed, to keep focus on the foreground figures.

Hey, I like it. And you did something and that's really the point. Right? Right. Doing opens the door and permits our answer entry. I just made that up.
