Super-Deformed Forever!



Here's another old drawing, this one combining two of my favourite things: 1) drawing big headed people, and 2) Bruce Lee!

Seriously, there was a time when I drew almost everyone super-deformed/bigheaded/3-heads-high! I think it was because it made everyone look so friendly and cartoony. Or maybe it's just because Ihave an gi-normously large head myself. Either way, I still find myself having trouble resisting the urge to make everyone's head just a little bigger in my drawings -- as all my friends will attest!

And it really does make everyone look friendlier! As another example, here's a drawing of everyone's favourite bad-ass mutant, Wolverine, done in my big-headed style. See and judge for yourself...

Well, my daughter (she's five) just now pointed at the Wolverine and laughed, saying, "He's funny! He's so teenie." So I guess it works!

Yes, Bruce Lee! Great picture. Even at three heads high, you captured his essence perfectly.

Hey Michael.

It's been a while since I've stopped by. So much great stuff here. Always a big fan of your inking.

I've got a similar problem...I always draw people's noses too big. I wonder what Freud would say...

Dude,
I love the Bruce Lee! He's so deadly cute! They both are, really!

When you draw Modok is his head 900 times bigger than his body?

Nice poses on Bruce and Wolverine.

We'll know you coming down the street with your big head!

Thanks, everyone! I knew other people would get it!

J: No, when I draw Modok, I just look in the mirror...

So how did you achieve the half-tone/dot printing effect on the colors for the Wolvie?

Joyce: Hey Joyce! Great to hear from you. Thanks for stopping by.

chrishaley: The dot-screen is a filter in photoshop: the colour half-tone filter.
