Nice range . Harder to do than most people think.

Dominic-Thanks. It was definitely a challenge to create a wide range in the character silhouettes ( as they do in animation ). Need to have that "instant recognition" among different characters.

Josh-Thanks for dropping by!

great bunch of characters, with instant recognition and very nice style. Your inking and greytones work remind me of Toth's "maverick" illustrations of the 50s.

Cool. Will be getting a copy of the book to see what it's all about.

Roberto-Thanks Roberto! I appreciate your comment especially because those Maverick drawings are particularly awesome. I was lucky enough to find a cheap copy of it at a flea market in Pasadena. It's beautiful stuff!

Parka-Thanks for dropping by! Went to your blog and enjoyed it! Great resource for new art books!
Hope you enjoy Secret Identities.

Terrific poses. Each one really gives you an instant sense about who they are.

Looking forward to seeing this!
