Many slots are still open for this! Don't be shy! YOU KNOW YOU WANNA! :D

My bud, :iconjwthamajestic:, did this and I thought it was a neat idea. I love stuff like this. This is how artists discover each other right here! :nod:

The rules:
1. For each person who comments on this journal, I will feature one of their characters. I'll also tell you what I like about them. Only 15 slots though.

2. If you comment, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (or original journalist) in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!

And....GO!

Jasper, from his comic "Bunny and Bear"
I love dogs, and I love shy, timid nerds. Jasper is both, and he is quite adorable. I just wanna hug him! :D

Barabus Seratt
I love that he’s a priest and a slayer. He’s very cool looking, kind of reminds me of Adam Ant a little. Two different eye colors…he can be both caring and sadistic…what more could you ask for? “)

The Tiger, from his comic "Master the Tiger"
I just love how Paul has a total grasp on the tiger, its movements, the contours of its body...just an all around great character. Realistic, yet cartoony. Love that about his whole comic, actually. Very cool and unique comic, by the way, that you definitely should check out.

Vampire Vivaldi
Well, Vivaldi was a real guy, but Hello here has turned him into a vampire. Which I love! He's awesome looking. JUST LOOK AT HIM! :)

J. Leslie Carmichael
I love vain, self-centered, pretentious characters. I know how fun they can be to write in a story, for one thing...well, J. Les is the perfect example of that cocky dude you love to hate. He also thinks, of course, that he is god's gift to the ladies. He's a character in Fac's comic, "Kickline," which is aces. If you don't know of it, you should definitely check it out.

Whoops! I almost forgot to have a look at the updated journal! :doh:
First of all: belated Merry Christmas jark Clause 

Thank you so much for this feature. I feel positively flattered!

I'm not surprised that Tiger, like all cats, couldn't help but steal the show again. I've always been around cats all my life, and they have such a way of drawing your attention I'm more or less doomed to drawing them all the time. ;) Also, I spend a considerable part of my spare time outdoors hunting (not tigers, I hasten to add! Only edible game that lives around here) and even studied Forestry for some time. This kind of thing taught me a lot about the anatomy of all kinds of animals and the way they move.
Last but not least, I used to have a toy tiger and a lot of overflowing imagination when I was a little boy. If you think Calvin & Hobbes you're not too far of the mark; Calvin and a six-year-old me are so strikingly similar it sometimes almost frightens me when I read those strips. ;) Thus, the very first comic character I ever drew was a tiger (looked at bit different then, though, like a few ovals with stripes, and you couldn't really tell the front from the back end ;) ) I'm well over thirty now, but Tiger kept coming back every now and then. A couple of years ago, I was working on something completely different, and in a bout of excessive procrastination started doodling Tiger together with another, newer character of mine called Gundula. The result are the first 30 or 40 pages of Master the Tiger and I had so much fun doing that I just went on ever since.

If I were to try and fit my drawing style into something, I'd hazard it owes a lot to old (1950s to 70s) école marcellaise comics, but there are indeed a few things I do differently.
My style originated as a stubborn struggle for survival in an environment that used to be pretty hostile for comic fans. When I grew up, comics were still in the process of slowly losing a reputation as being a cheap and inferior kind of entertainment responsible for all kinds of cultural decline, blah blah... (Yep, some things do happen with a 40 years' delay here). Things are a lot better today, but compared to what I've seen in most other countries, Germany still is something of a comic desert. As a result the number of comics I could get my hands on was rather limited and virtually everyone around me (except for my parents, God bless them) actively tried to discourage me from drawing. I've always had rather bad grades in art for that very reason. I basically had no choice but to work out everything on my own. This is why it makes me extra happy that you appreciate the result so much. :hug:

Well you are definitely one of the best webcomic artists out there in my humble opinion. Your stuff is so unique, fresh, different (I know sounds kind of cliche) but it's so enjoyable to look at and read. With the web saturated with so much anime stuff (not bashing it, some is good actually but there is SO much of it) and other things like sprite comics (yes, bashing those for sure =p ) it is nice to see something that stands out.

Oh, and I was the girl version of C&H only my partner in crime was a beat up (or, I should say well loved) dog named Henry who I carried around everywhere with me. :)

I feel very fortunate to have met you, and glad you have kept going with your art. So glad you didn't listen to your folks! :lol: I'm also glad that you didn't "fall off the end of the earth" like some people seem to do. I knew so many webcomic makers over at DD that just seemed to vanish, you know? I was just thinking about that the other day. I miss the "old gang" at DD (I have said that countless times, I know) but at least I've been able to keep in touch with great friends like you. :hug:

:D
