Pogo Possum and some gang by luismario Pogo Possum and some gang by luismario
Three words:

I need critics



Oh, and I think that Walt Kelly -R.I.P- is very upset with me
The lines are just crap. Done at Livestream, except for the bg.

-sigh- Me too, way too inspiring. Kelly did what we all needed in the history of comics

Thanks for the heads up! I will give it a shot again doing all the characters in a few weeks, glad you reminded me to do it.

Your characters are great and expressive. Just need a little work on proportion.

Great take on Kelly's characters- that was an AWESOME comic strip. I like your takes on Miz Mam'selle Hepzibah and Albert =D

They look a lot like the characters in the early years of the strip (1943-50).

Holy crud! "Pogo" fan art! SSWWEET!

The Pogo characters look really awesome in your style (especially Pogo and Albert - Pogo looks SPOT on)! Next time, among the other characters already mentioned, would you add Miz Beaver and the Rackety Coon Chile (I could only imagine how cute and visually appealing he'd look in your style!)? That would be so awesome!

You need to add the other guys too. I miss Churchy LaFemme, Beauregard the noble dog, Deacon Mushrat, Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered, etc.

And you made the 'mistake' to 'hide' your good inks with a big and more attention seeking bg.
Make the bg simple colored or make a swamp setting.

I will do this again, but now traditionally
Using Flash is a headpain. Will incorporate Kelly's style with mine's and let's see what can happen ;)

In fact I will draw the swamp. I love the way that Kelly draws trees and foliage and I will simulate that too.
What do ya think about this? =D

No matter how i look at it, that crocodile reminds me of Croc, an old kids character from Croc: Legend of the Gobbos on the PS1.

Overall the picture is good.

But the Skunk and the Porcupine look flat when compared to the other characters.

Nim41 Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2009
Well i think the paper pattern is too big, or obvious. it distract too much the eye. but the characters are great! They're cute and well drawn no matter what you say. Maybe the porcupine would need a touch of color, unless of course its purpose is to be black and white. It always depends of what you intend to do with it. In this case, it could be a great concept too!

Oh and a silly thought concerning the owl : i wouldn't pick white for its glasses because in my head white glasses can only be sunglasses worn at the beach ... doesn't look scholar enough. =P then again, i might be the only one in the world to think that.

Anyway, all this to say they are interesting characters. The white one with the yellow hat make me laugh. A angry looking creature with a huge yellow hat ... awesome man, awesome!

"The artist thought that this critique is FAIR"

Thanks for the critic
In fact I'm drawing another picture with all the characters
Every single one of them

I will do corrections onthe pic next time I do the other one

Thanks for you critic again! :coffeecup:

Actually, your line quality is just fine and I like how you incorporated Kelly's little hatchy texture things. Pogo's pose works the best because it has the clearest line of action. Why do the characters tilt up until they reach Albert? This looks like it's supposed to be a lineup, yet there's about half a head between where Pogo's standing and where Albert's standing.

Thanks so much for taking some time for this helpful critique, Kyle :highfive:
Yes, this doesn´t look too much as a line-up because of that tilt up
Oh, and that line of action sure I need to know how to apply them correctly on any kind of characters

Well, sir, I will do another pic of Pogo and will try to do even better

Thanks again, very helpful critique

Qued'o muy bueno,pero lo que digo es que si las lineas fueran como mas elasticas o talvez corvas de alguna forma tomaria mas movilidad,ylos personajes no parecerian tan rigidos y ganaria calidad tu trabajo.No se de que te quejas porque te quedo muy bueno y para mi es : :+fav: :star: :star: :star: :star: :star: :star: ...

Kelly hated what Jones had done with some of the characters. He was working on his own animated feature when he died.

Yes, I didn't care much for the story either, but Kelly was objecting to the way some of the characters were drawn. He was very particular about this, and turned down many offers to market his characters, and also was in poor health at the time, and didn't have the oversight on the project that he might of had.

Indeed- some comic creators have the gumption to ACTUALLY help with the adaption of their work, and then there are the ones who just do it for the money, rather than taking the mythology they crafted to a whole new level.

There's a story about Kelly sitting in a bar and some Pogofan walks in and goes over to him and begins gushing over Pogo and what a genius his creator is, and when the guy left, WK looked over at the bartender and said, "Did you ever hear such bullshit in your life?"

Wow, really? Yikes- despite being a comic genius, Kelly sounds like he was a douche, just like that guy who created "Ren & Stimpy" :O

Perhaps he was just peeved at being interrupted. Kelly was said to be one of the best barroom talkers in New York, he could expound on virtually any topic you could think of. In later years, probably due to that activity, he gained a lot of weight, got diabetes and had a leg removed, not something to make one cheerful.

Mi crítica es que no conozco a los personajes, asì que no sè què criticar.
Concentrate màs en la lìnea de acción como su columna vertebral.
