The original file is 15 x 10 inches... meaning Open Canvas and Photoshop liked crapping out every so often. BIG big file. Xx;



Original sketch done in Open Canvas 3.05, roughs lightboxed and cleaned up to 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock, then re-scanned into Photoshop, and painted in Open Canvas. Little extras, like the border and my stamp, added in Photoshop CS3.

^__^ awesome!! I didn't think of Jersey Devils as having scaly sort of forearms.. I draw Juju (oc) as just being furry all over, lol..

Heh, yep, The J Devil is actually described as having eagle like ( or maybe dragon like ) claws for hands, so I tried to go with that for this one. ^__^

I think that's actually just a Jersey thing in general, actually. We Jersians seem to tend to scare people a lot. I mean, heck, look at many of the scary / horror / bad jokes movies that have been made. Where do a lot of them take place? New Jersey, or at least SOMEWHERE in the tri-state area.

That's true, but I'm also a spineless coward. XD

It's a wonder how I'm able to avoid harm whenever I visit the state. XD

I take it you're not much for roller coasters then? I'm such a roller coaster freak... they scare the bejeezubs out of many people I know, but I love them to death. I WILL hit the Kingda Ka next year!

Oh my God no. I'm far, far too much of a chicken for those things. XD

I'm surprised I'm not clucking at that, it's that bad. *Fear of heights*

Ah, k, you got me a bit there. I don't know if I have a fear of heights, or if it's really a fear of being on something unstable, like a ladder or scaffolding.

And clowns. Clowns are evil.

Clowns never bothered me. I never knew it was such a widespread phobia until recently, to be honest. o_o

Or at least I'm learning it about more and more people.

Neither did I, to be perfectly honest, until about 3 years ago. A friend of mine on LJ stated that if anyone EVER were to put him in a situation where he'd be face to face with a clown, his first instinct would be to beat the crap out of the clown, then punch the hell out of his friend. That's when I saw I really wasn't the only one scared shitless of clowns.

At the store I work part time, one of our customers works part time as a for hire clown for kids parties. I didn't know anything about her, she didn't know about my fear, and neither did my bosses. Ooooh, they found out really quick.

See, this woman used to come straight over to the store after work, still in her clown outfit. And that day, she decided to come onto my register line. I finished with my customer, gave them their change and bags, started saying my usual greeting to the next customer before looking at them... then I looked up. And saw the clown. She was the next customer. Only 2 feet away from me, with nothing by the belt and scanner to separate us. I KNOW I felt all of my blood drain from my face, I started having a mini panic attack, I tried backing as far away as possible, but damned if the registers divider and about 10 other customers behind me on line for the other register weren't in my way. So I had to quickly scan her stuff, held out my hand for her money so I didn't touch her, barely spoke above a squeak, and as SOON as she got off my line, I started crying a bit, excused myself, screamed out to my boss that I need to go to the break room, and RAN upstairs, and had a nice massive PANIC ATTACK in the bathroom.

She is now not allowed to come into the store in her clown outfit. The current store manager knows this, as does everyone on front end. And if anyone on Halloween comes into the store dressed as a clown, my coworkers warn me if they see them. My register light gets turned off and I look as busy as possible until that clown goes onto someone else's line.

Danke hon!

I finally sold a print of him! Not from here on DA, but over on eBay. DYAMN, prints are difficult to sell! Seems not that many people want to purchase prints anymore, or at least 8.5 x 11 inch prints.


Man, I suck at keeping up with my message center. ^^;

Ah! Okay, I think I see where you mean then. That section on his muzzle, right? Hm, well, it can still be touched up, I'm just not sure how much texture I really want to add there without making it look over done.

Any suggestions?

oooh. i see.
and well, i'm in no position to make a suggestion. XD
but i kind of think just a stronger light contrast...ya know?
like...making the shadows stand out more...and add a bit of highlight...
to show the cylindrical-like shape of the snout. lolz.
of course, in that beautiful coloring style of yours~

Hm... not a bad idea, actually.

I think I may give it a go and do this on a separate layer, to see if I like it. Danke! X3

Heh, shall do! I have a free day off from work Thursday, so we'll see if I have some time to do it then, in between working on the tight pencils for the Inu Yasha piece and household stuff. Wee... paying bills... fun.
