By a Nose_____________________++_______________ August 4th, 2003 - monday___



Thankfully, my nose is rather large. Without it, I may have found myself in a mangled wreck somewhere along the I-5. You see, the right earpiece of my glasses recently broke off and I've been left with a pair of glasses sporting a single earpiece that I use very much like Mr. Peanut's monocle. Since my rather large nose is shaped more like a Roman nose than a typical rounder Asian one, my glasses sat comfortably on top of the nose while I made my way safely back to LA. Without it, I may not have been able to draw the piece above me...

..which may have been for the best, since this image was one of those cases where I committed to a really crappy drawing. I have done this on a number of occasions, especially when I'm on a tight deadline. To show you what I mean, here's the original scan:

I basically walked into the studio at midnight, found a scrap of paper on the table, grabbed a permanent marker and went to town. The original image has horrible scale issues, inconsistent linework, and wonky perspective. Basically, it's a terrible drawing. I winced while I began color work and thought it might be best not to post anything, but then I just pushed my way through it and here it is. Although I was sort of able to salvage it in photoshop, I wish I had been able to produce a better original piece. Oh well, on to the next one...

Copper is inked and ready for coloring. It will be up later this week.
