A Gift from Pufnstuf ???

Witchiepoo - "SEYMORE!!! Call the Bomb Squad!"
Witchiepoo has so far been the most difficult to design in the series. She's tons of fun to draw but I think this pic is more silly looking than it is good. I'm not 100% happy with her and most likely will redesign her a bit.
Here she is with a black line. Made some changes and it seems to help a tad. Witchiepoo had this strange eye make-up in the series that i don't want to lose - but creates color issues.
I'll throw some color on it after Christmas.
I lied - here it is. - HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY EVERYONE!!!

Kick ass design, Todd. I got a little confused around the mid section, specifically the puffy shoulder sleeves, but I got it now. Love how you pushed the hands. Brilliant!

Todd Kauffman said...

i agree. i don't like the hair, back and shoulder area - need to try something different. thx steve.

Thanks for the blog visit Todd. I can't recall if I've commented here before, but I've been watching for a while so let me just say I love what I've seen on your blog(s)! Very inspiring designs! I agree with you about this one though. It's almost there, but just a little too complicated along the right side. I thought you handled it nicely in your first Witchiepoo post. Love what you're doing with this series!

Happy Ho-Ho to you too. I have to say, I'm lovin this design ... nothin I'd change.I think the bold simple shapes are a nice contrast to the busy lines going on inside. I agree w/ Steve...those hands kick ass!

Witchiepoo looks good with these distortions. I like the outsized right arm and the all around freshness of the design... Are you producing this series (hope so!) or just 'playing' with the ideas? -A
