Slimer redux

Was never really happy with the original for a few reasons, and with it popping up left right and centre I figured I'd tweak it a bit so it looked the way I wanted it to. Also, with the Spirit Guide project crashing and burning, the original kinda lost its purpose. Anyway, here's my favorite drawing of Slimer...

I was always a big fan of Kurth's work on that run. If I ever got to write, I'd wanna write for him and Dan.

It was a fun book wasn't it.  I hope IDW decides to rerelease it.

Slimer...is really difficult to nail down character-wise.

While your revamp of him is beautiful and extremely accomplished, he's missing that "vaguely irritating puppy" factor that makes him memorable. Not just in "The Real Ghostbusters," either: the original movie has that as well.

I know what's putting me off! His expression. I think if he were more obviously grinning mischievously, I'd respond better...Here, he looks a bit more like a leering, scowling, creepy old man.

Still, I give you an A+ for the excellent work you did. I just prefer to think of the ugly little spud as...ahem...the "life" of the party.

HAHAH! I think you need to go through my work a bit more... You'll find I'm inclined to do this sort of thing to most creatures.

I see where you're coming from though, and thanks!

Yes, I've browsed through almost all of them. I do like your work; just not sure about Slimer as a creepy old man, that's all.

It pops out much better here. I am all for following along a concept/set of rules, but sometimes you just got to do it the way it should be done.

Yup! That's pretty much what I figure these days!
