Flint Paper


An old character design for the canceled Sam & Max Freelance Police game. I like working in this rough pencil with built-up acrylic wash style. It's quick and can look remarkably finished even though it's loose. Does that make any sense?

I love Flint Paper!
Everyone who I have talked to about this agrees; in a live action Sam and Max, Bruce Campbell would fit the role perfectly.

I was always kind of hoping for a Flint Paper comic... and I still am!

Oh yeah, where are my brushes?
Thanks for the burst of inspiration.

I think it makes sense. I find that a rough sketch shows the flow, movement, and of course the construction of a character.

I will also have to say that I love Flint Paper. He's my favorite.

Nice, he kinda has a Humphrey Bogart look to him. Or maybe it's just me. :P

I'm a fan of flint. But I'm really a fan of this style. Rough yet polished. Very nice.

I know this drawing, I don't really like it.

Not as good as you can usually do Mr Starchie !

Ahh, I think you're inspiring me to post some more of these. Stay tuned!

Inspiring drawing, character and technique, thanks!

Oh I remember the old game of Sam & Max, when they exit of your office and hear a few shots from inside the office of Flint Paper, and Sam say: "Oh I love the sensibility of Flint" and Max response: "Sam, please, don't use the word sensibility" jajaja. Is great!

Hey Steve,
Great illo. Always got a kick (in the head) from reading Sam & Max. It made me even laugh out loud. Any new comics in the works?
Best,
Gary

neat, he kind of looks like Bosco here.

To be honest I don't see that character working in Sam 'n' Max...

Right now I use watercolor to block in shapes and colors before going over it with charcoal pencil.

Can you give me more detail on your process? Maybe do a start to finish blog?

I haven't used acryclics since I was in high school. Maybe I should give them a try again.
