Oh now! The inventor is quite the looker now. It was those damn goggles.

That priest guy is scary. From the thumbnail I almost thought it was a ghost or something... so I was even more scared.

I like the black and white crosshatching stuff you have going on here.

Thank you! I modelled Herbert on a young Hugh Laurie. The character has some of that cute cluelessness, and his butler (who is always pulling his ass out of the fire) is a Jeeves type.

I'm very pleased with how the thugee priest turned out... I modelled him after the "Old Man of the Sea," from the Sinbad stories. :)

Your illustrations always amazes me. What I admire most is your ability to draw facial expressions and make the characters so alive. I bow before thee. You are definitely one of the best. :)
