EGADS is that Syd and Johnny from project Boatman?!

Why yes, yes it is. Geesh it's been so long I've almost forgotten how to draw my own characters...

Done in inks and poster paint

Hey!!

I'd been meaning to ask you when you're gonna actually do something with these jokers. I'd love to see SOMETHING either moving or juxtaposed with them in it. They're a couple of damn interesting guys.

Well.... long story.

I'm actually working on a feature length screen play evolving around these characters from a story that myself, :iconresidentofboxfive: and :iconoompaloompa816: created that started four odd years ago. The plan is to eventually get it made as a stop motion feature animation. But, seeing as it's of mature content and a tedious animation process, it will be rather difficult to sell to say a major studio.
My current (and more feasible) plans for these guys' future is a graphic novel adaptation of the script that if it goes well, could fund an eventual film. My current CURRENT plans is to actually do some animation THIS semester in my animation track with them (flash though, not stop motion :/) So it's always a work in progress :D I've been living with these characters in my head for such a long time now, they are like old friends. Being in film school as been a step forward for this ambitious idea, having a sister whose primary study is animation is a step forward, having contacts and friends who have further developed their art and writing skills... it just goes on :) I AM super exciting that they seem appealing to people, especially here on deviant, as that is really the true test as if it's worth to pursue outside my own ambitions.

WOW that was a tome...

They're fucking BAD ASS. Why wouldn't they have appeal?! But you not doing anything with them------ Oh, God, the suspense is KILLING me!!!! The story idea itself is fantastic, too--- If you'd get something, anything done, I'm sure someone would pick it up!!!!

Oh, hey. I like these two so much. Do you mind if I draw a li'l fanart of them??? Perhaps on the river Styx????

Sure!!! Have at it! Just site me as the creator of course. But shoot, I'm flattered :aww:
It'd be great to see them in another visual style :la:

whot---- why wouldn't i cite you--do you think I would-- oh, God, never mind. They're a lovely couple of guys. I'm glad you created them.
I'm trying to get out of my block right now. Thinking about how wonderful and beautiful the original version of Page two came out is preventing me from re-drawing it. I had to draw the first panel seven times, and I'm still not happy with it. I'm bringing myself down, man.

Artist block... Yeah, been there before. By all means, use the guys to get your creative juices flowing :XD:

The rest of the comic will come when it feels right ;) Art takes dedication but it also takes time.

I'm better about dedication, and not so much time. I'm freaking out because they're not done yet. I keep expecting you to be more impatient about it, but.... I guess that's because I'm applying my nature to you??? I do that sometimes.

Nah... I'm not impatient when it comes to waiting for something creatively to be done. Excited for it yes but impatient, no. ;)
