Twist ending: Prack was a cheater all along. He plays country bumpkin to lure city slickers into his trap. If they start winning despite his awesome sleight-of-hand skills, he furiously accuses them of cheating – and he’s usually right, so they rarely put up much of a fight.
I am consistently floored by the faces and facial expressions in this comic. Was this a personal drawing style of Lee’s, or how did y’all come up with the aesthetic for the comic?
I’m going to give Lee credit on facial expressions. He does such a great job of making them expressive without being too exaggerated.
I’m always drawn to and inspired by artists whose comics are full of great faces, great human anatomy, and they can be pretty much anyone from Manga artists, comic artists, webcomic artists, etc… I also spent a few years casually trying to be a caricature artist which made me focus on the face, it’s muscles and just how many different emotions you can convey simply by adding a line here or a shadow there or shifting the pupils just a tad out of alignment. So yeah.
If you want great faces, go check out guys like Stephen Silver, Jason Seiler or Shane Glines! There are just too many mind-explodingly good caricature guys out there to name. And that’s not even mentioning the giants of animation, Warner Brothers and Disney consumed my life early on.
My work is all thanks to the art I’ve consumed, you are what you eat. And I take this comment as a great compliment and thank you deeply for it. It’s made my day.
EDIT: I forgot to mention, caricature guys showed me great faces but animation guys showed me the character’s body language and the way they flow and carry their weight are just as important for conveying emotion. And I feel the need to mention I never formally studied animation or caricaturing, but I stare at them for hours and hope some of it sinks in.
Thanks, Lee! And thanks for drawing such a great comic!
