Sneed Snailman

He's slow, clammy and doesn't like his eyes touched. He's Sneed Snailman!

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet.

Wow, this illustration gave me a world of trouble. Here's the original notebook doodle. It looks so simple, I didn't think I'd have any trouble drawing it. But I just couldn't get it to work. The biggest problem was getting his folded arms to look right. I think the problem is that when you draw a fast and loose doodle, the lines are sloppy but somehow they work. Then when you start drawing it for real, you have to clean up the lines and then you find out that your layout has a serious flaw in it.

Here's the final, tighter sketch. I know, most of you are probably looking at it and thinking, "It looks just like the first one! This guy's off his meds!" Well, you're probably right, but nevertheless I was much happier with this second version.
