Connect the freckles

Here's another finished piece completed from the sketches I posted a few days ago. I thought it might be good to post the inked version along side the finished color piece. The original is inked on 11" x 17" bristol board and then colored in Photoshop.

I really like how this one turned out. The stockings are a nice touch as is the soda shop theme, if my guess is right. And of course, being a red-head aficionado, I love the freckles. Nice touch!

Still bummed about Dave Stevens, but this pic brought a smile to my face.

Thanks Royce.

Dave Stevens death surprised me too. I didn't know he was ill. I met him waaaaaay back when Rocketeer was a back up feature in Starslayer. We lost a really great artist and a nice guy.

I agree with Royce, the stockings are a great add! It appears to me that the creative little things that you do (whether it be a volcanao, a tiki, or Royce the crab) have a way of improving the overall effect of a piece without distraction from the main theme.

Long winded way of saying great job on the red head Gene! What is next, a brunette?
