Ducks from my first Donald Duck application
These are some of the ducks I made for my first real Donald Duck application to Egmont in Copenhagen (December 2002).

When I got feedback on my application they told me that they were interested in following my development as an artist but at the same time they pointed out that a lot of training remained before I could reach a publishable level. I got a script for a 3-page comic they wanted me to draw and ink. When I got feedback the Art director said that I was an artist with potential and that my enthusiasm for my work shone through. He also wrote that I needed to work with the construction of the characters, that they were too stiff and flat. (And he was absolutely right)

I have learned a lot as an artist since then, and I know that I still have room for improvement. And my desire to draw the Disney ducks professionally is as strong now as it was when I made my first application.

Thank you for your comment! What I think about the new Duck Tales? I haven't seen very much of it. That said, I'm glad that Donald Duck has a more central role in the new DT (just like in the comics) and I like the small references to the work of Carl Barks. But I'm not fond of the square design of the characters. Huey, Dewey and Louie look especially strange with their square heads. And I don't see the point in changing the character design so drastically as they have done with Gyro Gearloose, Flintheart Glomgold and the Beagle Boys.

Have a nice day!
