Mr. Depression and Me

Post by Kean » Wed Apr 14, 2004 8:48 pm

Drawing these Mr. Depression comics always manages to cheer me up when I need it. They're fun to draw! But in all seriousness, does anyone have any suggestions as to how to make this kind of style look even more childlike without being completely illegible? I wanted to colour this comic with my old crayons, but I just couldn't find 'em.

I think the style works, like you don't need to make it more child-like.. But real crayons would be cool. :) I actually still color things with crayons. hehe, heh.

Hey, I like it! It's funny how his arms go all wobbly when he gets hit in the head. Ha ha! It's funny when people get hurt!

I think the style on this is great as is. Lotsa fun.

I enjoy the way mr. depression wraps his claws around the frame of panel one.

Cheers!

Funny! I like the style, but think you can push it a little more. Have you ever heard of the Jpanese artist Shintaro Miyake? He does these live drawings in these suits he designs, but he draws just like a 2nd grader.

His starwars stuff is so awsome.

Anyway, my point is, you can push it to the point where it looks like a child drew it without compromising the artistic intregrity of the peice.

I think it's cool as it is, but if you want it to look more like an 8 year old drew it, your lines are way too clean and confident. You could take a stroll through your local elementary school and check out the art on the walls.
Fun for Brains and Eyeballs!

Hahaha. That is the coolest drawing of Darth Maul ever. Thanks for the link, Jake! I'll definitely be poking around that site for awhile. I don't think I have the self-confidence to draw in an animal suit, though. :shock:

I've only drawn one other Mr. Depression comic in the past year, and I feel like I've already tapped out all the material for it. I may have to start introducing more characters (Mr. Disappointment recently paid me a visit the other day)... although I only draw these comics when I really am depressed.

At any rate, here's the first comic of Mr. D. -- the art is a little rough, but I feel the punchline for this one is much better than the latest one.
