I'm really not sure if I like this.

It's been so long since I last uploaded something that I felt "anything would do" so long as I added something to my gallery. Still... I have this weird obsession that anything I upload should be "different". "Original". I've got plenty of drawings that I keep on my hard drive just because I feel I already have enough drawings of various characters standing around in my gallery.
I'm weird like that.

This has been way overdone. I mean... crazy goggled scientist, with a pipe that blows bubbles, on a winged flying bicycle? Jesus H. Christ, man! But, it just stuck in my head and I decided to go through with it. Call it "my rendition".
I like the fact that he stole a little girl's bike (see the basket? yeah, that's how you tell). And I like the color scheme.
Still, it's nice to know that I actually completed something, for a change.

Textures from Mayang's, by the way.

There are also little girly strings hanging off the edge of the handlebars, but those are harder to notice.

I agree with the dearest bunny, 'screw what you think'. That's one of your best pieces; it also satisfies my passion for the past - almost any era, really. So, yes, screw what you think, I'm adding it to my favs and I will pet it and love it. Warm, lovely colours, it smells of Jules Verne. :aww:

I'm not sure if I want this to be one of my best pieces :D
It just... isn't really "me".
Still, I guess it has more character than most (of my work), and so, in a way, I can't help but agree.

Ah... Jules Verne, that's real nice of you to say ;)

OK, here's an idea.
If you like Jules Verne, you could illustrate some of his characters in this style.
Then, it might become more 'you' - since you do like him as a writer...

Even though I'd rather try something new, that's definitely not a bad idea...
I might, I might.

Very nice colour pattern, I like duotone alot. The character is really something from 1920's or so. Great work Dim

Yeah, I like duo(dual?)tone, too. And that was the feeling I was going for, anyway, so 'sall good.
I would've played with the textures, more, if I went at it again. It's not like there was a lot of computer work involved, so I could've spent more time... I just wasn't able to find any cool-looking "old-movie" filters. You know, with dots, and lines running down the image.

Thanks!

When Dim showed to me I said "that's nice" and he got offended cause it wasn't a proper comment :P

So.. "exceptional work sir" is in order here.
No really, it is very nice, I just thought it's gonna have more details like gears n stuff.
