My favorite graphic novel of all time is Mike Mignola's Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. I love the big, red headed northerner, Fafhrd. This isn't specifically him, but I was definitely thinking of him as I drew it. Experimenting with simplicity. I keep flipping between two mindsets. I want to create a million quick images, then I want to creat a handful of super-rendered images. In the end i'm sure i'll settle on the million and quick end of the spectrum.
