mommy makeover by E-9 mommy makeover by E-9
Commission for the newspaper I'm currently photo-tech'n for. Basically the illustration was for a story about the trend of mommies undergoing plastic surgery and stuff like that there to re gain their "pre-baby" bodies, or better than what they had initially(?)

Ran today. It printed a lot better than I thought it would. I added a noise filter.. because... it was too "clean" looking. The article is here. [link]

This Won 2nd Place for Virginia Press Asso. in Editorial Illustration. sumi ink, brush pen, an hour of photoshop.

This is really cool man! I love the style and the colors...your inks are the shit. I think my only crit is the older kids wrist is about a third of the width of the baby's. Granted, babies are fat, but I think the older kid's arm needs some beefing up. Other than that, this is great, and interestingly enough, I USED to live in Fredericksburg when I was a baby...Now I live in Frederick. Weird.

Sorry I forgot to say it has a slick Tomer Hanuka feel to it, but you freaked it in your own style too.

Man, your inkwork is so amazing, you seem to have an almost perfect idea of lineweight. Nice choice of colours, too. The don't affect the piece really, but don't like the really-triangular nose of the surgeon, and I'd've preferred more depth on the little kid's lips. Keep it up, I love seeing your stuff on my devwatch :)

yeah, I thought about the nose thing with the surgeon... but then it dawned on me, if hes the one doing the plastic surgery he should sorta look like he's had it done as well, which are why most of his features, even the way I colored him are slightly more angular compaired to the other three.

I completely agree with you about the baby's lips. I never know how to treat lips at all and I dont color often enough to remind myself to work on it.

Thanks for the crits man! I apprecaite it!

Well now you've said that it completely makes sense- the thing that was bugging me most was probably that extra line at the top of the nose, really.

No problem man- I'd crit people more often if I wasn't so lazy :P
