Eleanor cover

New comic Chew writer (and old pal of mine) John Layman is writing and i'm drawing called Eleanor and the Egret.

Here's an short IGN interview with us talking about it.

Interesting to compare the original art with the finished piece. I did it on watercolor paper, so  it's has  a rough organic texture to it. I kept in various 'flaws' in the girl figure, because i didn't want it to look to slick or perfect.

Dunno if that worked, maybe not. Somewhat "idealized", but hey - i can be proud that she looks a lot less glamorous and more ordinary in the inside pages.

Every woman i draw eventually morphs into Dana's heavier proportions (which is the same body type as Wonder Woman cover girl) . .

. . .  but be it heavier folks, thinner folks, guys or gals,

it's all good.
