second option for star belly... this was the original concept that I saw in my head... some sort of mermaid like person. But the original concept drawings were far too stiff, lifeless, realistic... I don't do realistic fantasy stuff... never could. So this fell out of my head yesterday morning... much more satisfying. We shall see if either get done by friday.
option 1 for star belly: the only stipulation is that NO sneetches are allowed. All other boundaries are open. This is a redesign of a very very old drawing from the early 90s. Then, I had a fair concept but poor technique. Maybe this is my chance to set it right... the jury is still out.

I feel as though I have lost a family member. My very first and last
Reds Games that I heard were called by Joe. I listened while mowing
the lawn, baking the donuts, working on artwork trying to build a
portfolio, staying up when I should have been sleeping, or outside
shoveling snow while listening to the Hot Stove League. Joe Nuxall
was a part of my growing up, a voice that I recognized as quickly as
I did my closest friends and family. Sometimes, the only good part
of the entire day was hearing the Reds games, listening to the
rain delays from the banana-phone. He made me smile when it
appeared damn near impossible to do so.
I will miss you Joe Nuxhall, May peace be with you.
