    The Emperors OLD clothes

    A new slant on an old fairytale..(The Emperors new clothes)...Hope you like it....I think the Idea was ok, but the putting into practice got a bit sidetracked and I lost the plot,so its half finished.....Jack.

    That's using your noodle, says I, for going into the story and making it your own! What a clever notion, not unlike in today's world. This lad exploited that emp-bare-assing situation. Was it in an early Grateful Dead song St. Stephen where the line goes "One man gathers what another man spills."

    Very whimsical. I love the body language and the expression. Sort of reminiscent of the old cartoons of All Capp and Li'l Abner (which were also the early stomping grounds of Conan book cover illustrator Frank Frazetta). Many of those sensibilities of exaggeration of poses plus years of drawing that comic led Frazetta to be able to do his then unique illustrations out of his head, which fostered any number of genre imitators like Boris. Funny the connections. But this is really great.

    But aside from my personal digression, this is really super! Even if you forgot what you were doing as you say, this still says it all and it may have been a good stopping point. I love it!

    Well done Jack!

    mannafig, hello...thank you for replying,I was thinking of entering a competition on CG Hub with this, they are wanting new takes on old fairytales,which made me think of this...I just wondered what happened to his old clothes and this popped into my head, not good enough for a competition though,I guess...thought it might bring a smile to someones face though,so thats why I posted it.....Jack.

    Mr D Akey...Hello D..Thanks for looking in,I am always pleased to see you on here,your replies usually bring a smile to my face,you are so right in lots of things you notice that most people dont see,like that comment on a previous picture I did (with the grass sticker brush), you noticed, and put it down to cloning,which is just about the same as sticker brush heads I guess,well spotted there,I should have used a grass paper grain on another layer and merged them...actually I have several grass sticker sprays I made and quite a lot of Grass paper grains as well, so I could have easily used those on several layers and merged them all,that would have been fun(or an almighty mess,lol)...thanks for replying D, very much appreciate your views,and advice......Jack
