Someone is either avoiding his homework or trying to get away with writing "fire attack" over and over and over again for an essay assignment. No worries - he'll become a scholar someday.

Time: 14 days for the pencils, 11 days for the inking. Lots of experimentation and tedium as usual, but the progress-to-frustration ratio was satisfactory. It just takes damn forever to build up lines and add picky details. The hair was surprisingly fun once I got my brain around it, and I'm starting to understand fabric folds as well.

Your shading is very subtly done - especially on the hat. Nice work!

Flattered as always to be complimented by a pro. :)

Thanks! I keep trying to get a better sense of form and bring in more of the detail that such a sense facilitates - such as lighting, which requires solid structure to develop to the level of the comic artists I admire. And of course I continue to pile on the finicky doodads. :P
