...in a photo booth. i don't think this came out as well as i'd hoped originally, but i guess it's pretty good, though it was tough keeping the colors and highlights consistent with each picture. and tongues are hard to render, i've discovered. each picture is 7" x 8".

omg that's a good idea!! i definitely should do SOMETHING, at least... i wonder if i redrew this, though, if everyone would compare it to the old one and complain about the new one isn't as good. :XD: maybe i could do a photo booth thing but with different characters?!

I just realized, Cleo seems to have several ear piercings in the older versions of her, but in the newer versions, she has none. Did she take them out and they closed up..? Or did you just feel it didn't fit with her character? :confused:

have you read the Wet Moon comics? she doesn't have any earrings in the comic itself, and she mentions she used to have some but took them all out after hearing about keloid scarring. all the drawings of Cleo with earrings were drawn before i started the actual comic so they're technically not canon. basically i took the earrings out for the comic because i didn't want to draw them over and over, haha. :XD:

I only have the first 3 volumes, and saving up for the next 3! :eager:
I do remember that now lol ^^; and I could only imagine drawing them over and over would be frustrating :p I hope Cleo realizes that keloids can go away, without scars :XD:

oh, awesome!! thanks for reading. :D

i think even if Cleo knew keloids can go away she'd be too freaked out! my sister used to have a ton of earrings that resulted in MAJOR keloids, which Myrtle's ears are inspired by in volume 2 (my sister's were worse, though!) and i don't see my sister very often these days but i think even though her scars subsided they never fully went away. i'm sure it's case by case.

Yeah, I see what you are saying. It also depends on what it was pierced with, needle or gun? I had almost all of mine done with a needle, EXCEPT for my second lobe piercings, which are the only ones I've had that resulted in keloids forming.

it was this picture that got me interested in your works ages ago, and I've been excited everytime there was new art up from your Wet Moon comic - until about a week ago I caved in and ordered the first book. I haven't bought a comic for about ten years but I'm glad I did so now! I love your work, how real you make the people. Quite something to aspire to, if I ever draw something of my own... thanks and keep it up! I'll definitely will be getting the rest of the series, too. Malady is my favourite character, but Fern's awesome too.

I think one of the things I like in the style jump between #1 and 2- on ward is where Cleo and Audry's bodies definitely changed, so did Martin's. X3

When I saw him in the second book the word that came to mind was 'thicker'. Like he's been spending more time in a computer lab/art lab instead of mandatory P.E. classes. It does not take much time for that to add up and it's been indicated (or at least that's how *I* took it) that there has been a few weeks between the first book and the second. Cheap food/junk food + classes and labs = your body is gonna change.

Plus that time he was posing in the mirror before his date was cute and a good reminder that guys are just as sensitive to their body image as girls. Equal opportunity all around!

I meant that as less of a jab. So, uh, let me articulate.

It's not the stylistic changes, though they did coincide with the story inconsistencies. It's that you can't relate to your characters anymore. It went from slice-of-life to superhero, murder caper.

I like your work, and own everything you've put out[save Naga]. But with the switch to digital, your work is losing its appeal.

sorry you're not crazy where Wet Moon is going, but it's going where i planned it to go since day 1, i'm just sticking to the plan. the seeds for the stuff that's happening in the series now were planted in the early books, it's just finally coming to the forefront. but yeah it's cool if you don't dig it, no obligation.

the Wet Moon artwork hasn't switched to digital, Shadoweyes is my only digital comic.

thanks for the input, in any case. :)

Oh gosh, I love those one =) It's very nice to see on .... my copy of Wet Moon: Feeble Wanderings ;)

Keep up the excellent work, I'm hooked on the comic since I found two copies at a book market - the others I will certainly try to purchase in a way that'll fund -you- xD

You're a really amazing artist =)

Oh wow, your were so much more varied & different back in 2004 than what is showing up in your comics today. Trilby, boyfriend and Cleo all have distinct shapes to them as opposed to the straight line down and bulbous end.

It's interesting your work has taken on a more cartoony style as opposed to the almost realism you did way back when.

:iconmooncalfe:
mooncalfe Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2010  Professional
yeah, things were really different back then. the more realistic style ended up not working for me and not working for the characters so i switched gears, both intentionally and unintentional artistic progression, for various reasons.

"straight line down and bulbous end"

In wet moon 1, trilby is taller, her bangs are less pronounced, and her boobs are smaller. but in wet moon 5, her eyes get really big and she seems smaller and/or shorter.

I absolutely love the way you draw mouths....lips, teeth (I'm strangely obsessed with teeth and drawing them) and the way the piercings look in them. Everything is just great. :3
