Dec here. Mooney asked me to apologise for the lack of posting today as he is currently Net-less. I repeat; Net-less.
He says he'll upload his post as soon as soon as he's up-and running again.
UPDATE: So I'm back online and here's my piece. As usual, I went with the lowest common denominator; Samurai Jack.

That's a really interesting blend of your own style and the style of the show.
Yeah, I was trying not to fall into the trap where I just end up drawing the character pretty much on model, so I just lashed it out without being too overly-reverential to the source-material. Dunno what I think of the results, but I am at least satisfied that it has enough 'Mooney' elements in it to seperate it from just a screenshot or the like.
Not as successful as your Secret of Kells effort, methinks.
Worth the wait, Mandinga. Love the background.
It's interesting to hear you guys talk about not falling into a trap of drawing on model. I spend a good portion of my working day checking everyone is on model! But I totally dig why it's important in illustration to have a recognisable style. What I love about comics is how much more individual expression artists can have on mainstream stuff. With animation the hierarchy can breed bitterness and everyone has to match the main designers modelsheets .only the really eagle eyed super nerds can spot different animators work In a big production think ...
Although it does bug me when comic artists don't adhere to the specific look of certain characters. Like when they draw Spidey or Mr. Fantastic really huge and muscly, or don't give Shazam his round face and squinty eyes. That 'anything goes' attitude means a lot of comic artists fall into the trap of having everyone they draw look pretty much the same.
