Cool

TJ Lubrano said...

Okay okay, let me see. Hmm no one is facing the camera directly...wait! One is! Nr.3. He staring with such a confidence that I get the feeling he thinks 'If I stare at the camera, people will think I've nothing to hide! So won't know that it's me.'

He could have done it. But then again, if I stare long enough...it seems that his eyes are out of focus too....Hmm difficult.

Hehe. I love the tiny hat! So what did they do? Wait. Are they...Marshmallows thieves :|....

Chris Boyd said...

Very fun! Number 2 looks like he's got something to hide.

Jeremy Elder said...

So fun! I love the flash bulb lighting effect.

Kyri Kyprianou said...

Hi Ken, great stuff! Love the monsters and looking forward to the Illusionist probably too much. I keep checking for release dates; I hope it has a proper full release so loads of people go and see it.

What're you working on now? Any more features?

Pablo said...

Ha! These are great Ken. I love each character and I like how you can read each ones personality. Very cool.

bee said...

Hahah these guys are so awesome! They all have such personality. Love the style too Ken. My fave is the nutty guy with the wee hat munching on his number - he cracks me up!

Jörn said...

Hahaha, really funny Ken. Nice abstraction. Lol, just see number 4 got a hat. Think number 3 is guilty!

Kyri Kyprianou said...

I hope the freelancing goes well, it's a tough road to walk! You're good at getting yourself out there though, so hopefully it won't be too much of a struggle for you. At the moment I'm running a small design business with two other partners. We're doing okay, we've got some good regular clients (NHS, Efes Beer and some others) which is cool. But there's limited creative freedom, so I like to draw in my spare time!

Djordje Zutkovic said...

What a suspicious looking line up! 3 and 4 are in cahoots! Great variety in the designs. Nice work!

Pato Pagnucco said...

jejeje love it!
very friendly and colorful characters! :)

Peter Breese said...

Brilliant buddy, makes me want to watch Monsters Inc again.

maarten said...

hahaha this is fabulous dude, your work always puts a smile on my face.
interesting thoughts in your previous post. its the same for me. I know i could spend more time on drawing (who couldnt) but i dont wanna stop hanging with friends, skateboarding etc etc. But hey.. no inspiration, no art!
There must be very little people who do nothing else than drawing.

Joseph Lee said...

I love the expressions to these guys! Great!

andrewQuintiliani said...

It's obviously the guy with the top hat. Look at him destroying the evidence. Really cool monsters!

Nadia said...

daaawww!! ^^ so cute! I like number 4 best, he didnt do it. let him go and send him to me. He'd be a perfect new plushy :D

Brandon said...

HA! Love it! The usual suspects indeed. Looks like you had too much fun on this one.

joe said...

these are great! i've had a lovely time loitering around your blog, Ken. your comment was very much appreciated too! cheers

Fabian said...

Hey Kenneth! LOve it a lot!! They look cool! Perfect work!! :)

Heather Dixon said...

Love these designs!

bog_art said...

Which one is you? haha.. I am doing good my friend, you know, learning as you.. And you are right, to draw every single moment of life, it is not life..

Ivan Oviedo said...

Hi Ken, thank very much for the comments in my blog.

I'm impressed, your work is getting better, congratulations!!

Christina Dee said...

Hey Ken!! I'm loving all your posts!!! seriously, I can't choose! your paintings are amazing, great color choices and compositions...love your more design-y art too like this piece, I think number 3 is my favorite :D

looking forward to more awesome artwork, and thanks for visiting!

Justin Rodrigues said...

haha! Man this line up is awesome! Great stuff. i love that red guy second from the left. great personality.

Niall O loughlin said...

lovely stuff man.

Jonathan Hoffman said...

I love it - very rough and quick and yet it has a ton of personality. I think it's number 4

Adrian Lubbers said...

Very fun, very cool. Great idea too. Keep rockin it Ken.

michael robertson said...

these are so great! I especially love that guy in the middle.

GhettoFab said...

hahahaha fantastic designs Ken!

Im goin with number 1. He has guilty written all over him

Wayne B. Medina said...

absolutely wonderful my friend! you have been killing it with all these awesome post!

Ken said...

Thanks everyone for all the kind comments, it really is much appreciated!

TJ Lubrano: Haha! The theories! Its a tough one. Perhaps they are all guilty. In which case I would put number 3 as the ring leader. He has eyebrows of authority! haha... yes... I think they could be. The marshmallow monster thieves! Good call :D

Kyri Kyprianou: Thanks mate! Sure it does have a proper release - its due to show at the Edinburgh film festival! Im pretty excited also :D At the moment I am a freelance character designer/illustrator - no feature stuff yet, but thats the dream :D

Bee: Thanks Bee! Haha yeh i kinda like him too... perhaps he thinks he is destroying the evidence :D

Kyri Kyprianou: Yeh its hard work mate! But worth it... I hope :D Thats great about the business! Good on ya - its always good to go it alone. And its good that you are surviving in this current climate! But I hear ya about the drawing in spare time thing. Keeps us sane eh?!

Maarten: Thanks mate! Yeh, there is so much to do and youre right it probably enriches our drawing at the end of the day :D I think there are people who spend a lot of time with their art, at least a lot more than I do. I really admire them for that.. but for me personally, I got too many interests! Lets hope its not too much of a distration hehe

Nadia: Haha! Good idea! Ill knit you one lol!

Brandon: thanks mate! Yeh it was fun... the fun ones are always good :D

Bog_art: haha they are all distinct aspects of my personality. Or something!

Christina: Aw thanks for the kind words! Yeh, I like to experiment with more designy stuff also. Keeps me on my toes. thanks again!

Once again - thanks everyone. Sorry I didnt have time to individually reply - I will do so next time!

Ken :D
