JERSEY DEVIL

Possibly a close cousin to the Tazmanian Devil?

Seth, your recent posts here are starting to scare me a bit. Maybe you should talk to a professional.

Great design on this guy, and I love the Charlie Brown zig zag pattern in his fur. Lovely tongue, too! Keep up the great work!

bSeth,

This is GREAT!
I really love the line work...
I can't keep from looking back at the eyes, the nose, and the tongue...
Is this colored pencil on red paper?

Great design Seth, the pattern in his fur looks cool. I'm really enjoying your monster trip:D
How's "Surf's Up" coming along? I can't wait to see the first snippets, the poster looks awesome.

Take care,

Hans

Thanks for stopping by, guys!

Nikki,

It's a scanned sketch done with a China marker/ wax pencil, then colored in Photoshop with a textured brush.

Hans,

You'll see the first Surf's Up trailer starting this weekend in front of Open Season!

Sweet!

Another great design from Mr. Hippen. I love the shape of the tongue and the little, dangling arms and legs. And the colors... beautiful as always, sir.

Holy crap! That is one awesome character. I really like the size of the head in comparison with the rest of the body.
