This is the second round of perfecting my characters for the Jack the Giant Killer fairy tale project. Even though I'm quite pleased, with these designs, I think I may have to go further with them at some point. Even though I more than fulfilled the requirements for this project there are some expressions and details that I feel could be further fleshed out and explored.
A lot of people might not realize that behind the designs I've posted here, there are at least twice as many pictures that weren't working that I had to perfect to get these to the point that they're at. The day a design comes out perfectly formed on the first round is the day I should probably stop working on art, because in my mind it'd mean that I've stopped trying to learn and perfect my craft. One of my teachers said it best when mentioned that "Struggle is good, if you're not struggling, then you're not learning." I couldn't agree more. I've struggled with my work long enough to know the truth in that statement. So keep working hard, never stop questioning, and as always, enjoy!


  1. This looks great, it always hard to find the balance between being satisfied and needing to do more… but now that it's December 25th, it's probably an okay time to take a break. ;)

  2. Thanks. Though I'm sure I can squeeze at least one drawing in, hah.
