December 7 panel - only the old sun now…
December 8 panel - after this cute old photo, though I didn’t quite capture my favorite things about it, heh ^^
December 9 panel- upgrades
December 10 panel - after this photo
December 11 panel - time to get a suit made
So much bloom in that old photo. (definitely more of a digital task, if t'were up to me) But I like your version too.
I wonder if he'd ever wear a toupee...
Again, different style, but just as effective in its own right.
Not like Ari could just inherit one of his..... ;]
That is a pretty fun photo. XD That gentleman's really hoofing it! (it also amuses me for some reason that zero people in the background can be seen stumbling..)
12/8 - Some of the body language was what appealed to me most, so it was kind of a victim of the size of the panel (maybe if I'd been a little more zoomed in I could've gotten past that) and the 'only one chance to draw it' factor of these panels (which has definitely torpoed a few throughout the year, ha ha). I'm sure you could do a nice version, but I doubt going digital would help me any.
12/9 - I've wondered about that myself...might look kind of strange... Well, he liked having some pretty long hair back in the day, so XD;
12/10 - I didn't want to copy some parts of it exactly (the bright colored boat didn't seem to quite suit the idea I had in mind), but without drawing the person as recognizably one of my characters or favorites, it's pretty generic...
12/11 - Nope! And Adagio probably enjoys
12/12 - Yeah, I liked it too! (Hmm, I didn't pay enough attention to notice that)
12/12 - (well for context I was just thinking to our recent visit to the mini ice rink at the Mission Inn and a couple people slipping there) :Þ
