gabriel these are beautiful. i am looking at the list of posts you've had. any plans to do a little story book or anything of that nature. each new post of yours seems to thread an untyped book already. your characters seem to be growing in each panel with such interesting personalities.

these are beautiful gab. images with stories...the best kind.thanks for the comments on the blog as well.

best regards

So playful :D

Catman looks great, I like how animated he is...

Sergi Cardó said...

I like the contrast you get between characters, not only on this picture but in all your works. Like always, wonderful.

Jaku said...

wooooooooooooooooooow...
This Catman Rules!!!
I love the great personality you put in your characters, and the way you show it in only one pose...
And, like Sergi said before, the contrast is amazing!
Bravo!

Nomad said...

Wow. Sempre più estasiato, non solo dal tratto, anche dalle atmosfere e dalla espressività dei personaggi. Grande.

Mike Wieringo said...

That's so wonderful-- I love the way you have told a story with just one picture-- and the way you use so few colors to tone your work is just amazing/

Sanvi said...

catman with 4 arms ^_^

Kyle Marshall said...

Yes, I to love the minimal color use, and wonderful movement and character within the drawings

Gabriele Pennacchioli said...

Thanks guys.

orange- well, I don't have any plans at the moment. I know that I should do something with these drawings but I still didn't put my mind in to it.

mt- Yes, the idea is that everything in the young minotaur world is like a game. He is strong and fast, nothing can scare him but... the powerful Medusa.

sergi cardo'- You know: no contrast no story.

jaku, mike wieringo - I think it comes from my love for classical illustration.

mike wieringo, kyle marshall- I'm glad that you consider my drawings in color because for me they are black and white.

JavierOlivares said...

Wow, very impressive drawigs, man!!!
I like your figure structure, your line, and your good style taste.
Specially the "klimt" draw, and the comic page in the old good style of the best Alex Toth..
Congratulations!.

So, when's the movie coming out? Or at least the graphic novel =)

Seriously Gabriele, you know there's a story brewing in the background. It's just a matter of time before it surfaces I guess...

Love the skinny, banded arms of the catman. Very appropriate. Also, great combination of arm poses.
