Disney Afternoon Sketch Cards

Here is an attempt to refine my style by getting back to basics. No photoshop. No Illustrator. Just me and my prisma colors. Very humbling.

And what better way to get back to basics than with the characters that inspired me to draw in the first place.

Gummi Bears is the reason I draw comics. I love that show. Talespin too. I remember really loving DuckTales too... but I've tried watching episodes recently and they just don't hold up as well as the others. I don't know why.

I like the Sketch Cards. Good job man!

Are you coming to the Comic Book Expo? I hope to meet you there. I'll have a table.

I'm planning on it. We'll see. :)

Glad you like the cards. It's funny though, to me, Talespin doesn't hold up these days... but I could spend hours (and have) watching DuckTales.

Oh well. Different Strokes for different folks. That's what I'm talkin bout, Willis. :)

Thanks for the comment.

Its the nephews and especially the little baby girl duck that I can't get past when I watch Ducktales again. In talespin its the little girl too, but usually she's only in one scene or two. But the kids in DT are in nearly every scene and they drive me crazy now. Haven't been able to make it through a whole episode in years.

I really like Don Carnage in Talespin though. Very funny! Nearly every episode with the pirates is golden. I'd almost like to see a series with just them.

Have you read any of the Carl Barks Scrooge stories that all of DuckTales was based on? Those are freaking amazing man. And the "Life and Times of Uncle Scrooge" by Don Rosa is a can't miss.

Yes! I'm a HUGE fan of Carl Barks and the Duck comics. You'll notice that I gave Scrooge a red coat, as in the comics. I did the same with the Beagle Boys also.
