Lackadaisy Frippery by tracyjb Lackadaisy Frippery by tracyjb
Because of deadlines, I've had to tackle the remaining comic pages going into the first book en masse. Those pages'll be along shortly, but here's some of the pertaining artwork (in various stages of incompleteness).

A few of the sketches are detritus from past comics - stuff that didn't make the cut. The art at the bottom was just a little graphic done for a convention that'll be featuring a speakeasy theme.

The actual comic can be found at the Lackadaisy web site

I like the fact that you drew Freckle indexing the trigger instead of haphazzardly putting his finger in the trigger housing.  Not many artists would have the sense to think that an experienced gunman would index until he's ready to shoot (for safety reasons).

isn't the cat sitting behind viktor with the spot on his left eye the one that viktor and the other cat "got rid of"?
OfTheBlessed Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013
Oh, you mean the "poor schmuck" who threw off the geometrical balance and symmetrical harmony in the car Mordecai and Viktor were chauffering him around in.  It does kind of look like him, doesn't it?

Viktor Vasko has to be my favorite character :D

Your work is always so beautiful! The facial expressions and body laguage you're able to give your characters is really amazing! I wish I could draw this well.
sheri-chan Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2010
wow really amazing!
how do you do it, draw in pencil the frames apart and put it together on photoshop or you draw the comic estructure directly in pencil? (just curious, it's just that the combosition of your frames is great)

random questions... in the picture with Asa and his small empire, is the cat next to Viktor Ivy's father?
and.. is Viktor left handed?

:heart: love for your random pieces of comic/sketchy stuff/finished illustration/(sexy tuxedo cats with trenchcoats) pages XD they are so awesome *_*

Hahah, I love Wick's face. He looks so hapless sometimes.

You're also fantastic and presentation and paneling.

i love it when you do these pictures for the comic. Its kinda like the behind-the-scenes for Lackadaisy. Great stuff as per usual.
Antidaeophobia Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2008
The expression you draw for your characters make me envious of your talent.
Hira--Akami Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2008
You know, I never cease to be amazed by your ability to make cats look so ... human. I mean, most people who usually draw humans don't achieve this level. I am especially impressed by your variety, no two cats look even vaguely the same, yet they are all still clearly withing the same art style. Brava.

You're such an excellent character artist. How long have you been employed drawing comics please?
tracyjb Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2008
Thank you.
I'm employed as an artist of a different type, actually. Comics are just what I do in my free time outside of work. This is the first real comic project I've undertaken...I've been working on it for about two and a half years.
loveablemoggy Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2008   General Artist
Thankyou for taking the time to reply.

I hope you don't mind, but I have another question for you :)

How did you begin drawing for comics and get into it on a more professional way as you have, even though it's your hobby :), because I'd really like to try it myself too, and perhaps attempt to go somewhere with it. It's one of the things I've considered taking up for a long time now and would really like to hear how you went about it.
fishy-kun Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2008
I've just realized how awesome your soft-cell shading is.

And it is very awesome. :D
AuroranWings Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2008  Student General Artist
I love all of these. Especially some of the more detailed scenes. Like the one of Mitzy in the alley or Mitzy and Zeb at the trapdoor. They're all so neat. :]

so much expressions :heart:...
you're amazing 8D
TurtleVVisperer Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2008
The middle, framed drawing is fantastic. Well, each one of these could be a work in itself. Your expressions are so great, but I know you get that too often. But I had to say it again anyways. Thanks.

Beeeeeutiful! I love reading these online, but I will most definitely be picking up the book when it's published! :)
T-babe Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2008
Ya' know, I actually rather like this series. The cast is a lot of fun and the story seem s to have a lot of life and depth. I'd actually like to see more of it, when it's good for you I mean.
