Des - Your Gimp Boy shows real movement where as The Girl Who Coudn't Hula is almost static (which is why she can't hula.)- and one should never hula gracefully. I know you didn't rip me off, Des, I was just jesting so you can sleep easy:

Y'know, now that I see the pic, I remember seeing the pic, but honestly m'lud, I never thunk of it when I was drawing the Vicious Circle, and I absolutely did not intend to plagiarise your work. I hope we can settle this out of court.

I've gotta say, Gimp Boy is nowhere near as graceful as your hula girl, and I say that as his spiritual father.

boy - This drawing originally part of the title sequence to a comic strip called 'The Girl Who Couldn't Hula' in a retro style anthology called Waikiki Luau. However I was never really pleased with the strip - I only liked tis image and it was later used for a CD cover by a group called the Surfones (they actually named their album 'The Girl Who Couldn't Hula' after this image). But if ever you can come up with a strip that could fit this image let me know.

I really would like to see a little Story with this nice-retro-style

Well spotted - she does indeed have six fingers on the left hand but I like to keep these little foibles in to keep you on your toes
Andi - The backgound colouration was done with oil based crayons mixed with white spirit and whtle oil crayon. I like the flakey specked look as it brings across texture and depth. So I'd rather not change it, thank you very much.

It reminds me of illustrations from the 50s or 60s. Perfect, only the white spots in the coloration have to go. 'Cause of the Hand I can only give you 4*

Awe, she must be suicidal. Especially since she has six fingers on her left hand )
I like the reduced set of colors.
