Dry Brush No?...

Maybe I just went a bit too heavy?

Really cool Sas-crotch Todd! Yeah, maybe changing the opacity a bit on the dry brush? But it's still totally Kauf!

("Kauf" is going to be the replacement for "cool" one of these days)

This is a really awesome piece - I love the design and concept.

I think overall both versions look good, but yeah the drybrush does seem a tad excessive, and the plain one seems rather uh too plain. I would try to just tone it down a bit and only use it to help define the shadowed edges and/or highlights to help give it more volume and dimension.

I'm sure you know of him already, but take a close look at some of Steve Lambey's stuff and the way he applies the drybrush PS effect - he's a master.

I dunno... I think they both look great, but I'm a little partial to the flat one myself....not that one's better than the other, just a personal choice. Love the design and the concept is hilarious! Great work as always sir.

FANTASTIC!!! I love the fact that underpants & sweat bands are totally appropriate attire for cartoons! Great design once again. Turn your head & Kauf! (I know, I know, with a last name like Deal, i've heard em all before as well)

The design and colors are top notch, Todd. That drybrush stuff is only icing :)

If you're looking for feedback, my advice would be to keep it more simple. Maybe shadows only. Too much and it gets muddy. I've done it myself toooo many times.
