Daily Deviation

Given 2011-03-29
I fell in love with the style in Eleanor, page 1 by ~jgurley as soon as I saw it. The start of a visually exciting and original story, each one leaving me eager to read the next. ( Suggested by jdoem and Featured by kangel )

Beautiful. I used to live in Oregon. It has a certain melancholic, yet peaceful content feeling about it. You defiantly nailed that feeling :)

As for what it's about -- keep reading! It's about so much more than it seems at the beginning.

i have to note that she, indeed, has a very, very large forehead.

Doesn't she? As someone who has spent his life drawing mostly gumdrop-shaped characters who squish around from scene to scene, drawing something a bit more lifelike is an ongoing (and very interesting) new challenge.

Large foreheads are great for reflecting sunlight and powering small villages, though.

You totally got me hooked on your large foreheaded creature though ^^ "she has a very large forehead" just sounded a tad bit less 1-in-a-million than "OMG MORE!"

Working on the publishing possibilities right now. One way or another, this will be released for others to enjoy.

It's definitely a personal thing, though.

Wonderful. You've got a wonderful, really wonderful style. Keep it easy and with this "Short shots of the situation in each panel"-style. I'd buy your graphic novel.
