      Nice work Ward - it's great to see more of your work.
      I'm always envious of the underlying fundamental drawing skills you have to have to be a successful animator. Your's are top-notch!

      Y'know, Chris, it's so easy to fall into the Jack Davis/Samurai Jack gumstick fingers thing, so I've been trying to find a style that's similar, yet different.

      Thanks for the nice comments, guys!

      Very nice style. when i see that i can't help it but see it in 3D, would look very fresh.

      That would be very wild to see these characters in 3D, Javier!

      Hello Ward, how can i contact you?

    11. Glen Mullaly 118 months ago | reply

      I've always think of that "Jack Davis/Samurai Jack" style of hands as Merlin ( from Disney's Sword in the Stone ) hands. Do you think that might be the initial influence?

      And no... I wasn't fibbing!

      You know, I meant to say Jack Kirby, not Jack Davis (although, Davis' style of hands are very expressive as well) -- I was talking about the squared off fingers that Kirby was so well known for.

      Honestly, I believe that Kirby was the initial influence. But, I don't think that Milt Kahl (who designed the characters in Sword in the Stone) looked at Kirby for influence -- who's to say? I do know that Kahl was influenced by Ronald Searle, as well as were a great deal of other Disney artists at that time. Searle was big. Still is.
