This week: Scout goes for a swim, Sketch Card winners, and Fan Art for Halloween!

Watching Scout try and fail to get some grub is making me hungry. I may have to throw him a bone soon. Or make myself a sandwich. Remember, it’s been weeks for us, but he’s only been wandering around for a few hours or so. Don’t worry. I’m not going to starve the dog.

Ok, Sketch Cards. Congratulations to Krishna who won the Scout sketch card! He’s already received it and he loves it. And another congratulations to Frank who won the Bigfoot Halloween Sketch Card. It’ll be on its way soon!

Now, before I go squeeze into my Halloween costume (I’m the back end of a horse, as usual) here are some extra special treats. Fan art!:

First, I participated in Denver Brubaker’s Checkered Man Trick-or Treat Fan-Art promotion. Denver had a bunch of webcomic artists dress their characters as his Checkered Man. It was a lot of fun to do, and I discovered a lot of other talented artists and fantastic webcomics just flipping through the submissions. If you’ve never read The Checkered Man, take a look around when you get there.

Next, I swapped some fan art with Jeff Crowther, creator of Yeti 4 Hire. I worked in a hybrid style that combines a little of Jeff’s aesthetic with mine. I think it looks pretty good! And so does Jeff, so nyeh! You can see the full piece by scrolling down below today’s Yeti 4 Hire!

Finally, scroll down to see Jeff Crowther’s awesome Untold Tales of Bigfoot fan art. Jeff’s a busy guy (he updates Yeti 4 Hire a few times a week) but he still took time to crank out this amazing Bigfoot piece for me. Jeff’s action-packed, all-ages webcomic, Yeti 4 Hire is a lot of fun and the bold colors and sweeping style are bursting with energy. You get a sense of that with this hilarious Bigfoot and Scout piece. You should definitely check out Yeti 4 Hire (immediately after reading, liking and sharing this Bigfoot post, of course) and tell Jeff how awesome he is.

How’s that for a fat sack of Halloween treats? Hope your night is spooky and fun! -v

Untold Tales of Bigfoot is for grown-ups and kids. Let’s keep the comments appropriate.

  1. Is that Bigfoot’s shadow up in panel 2? He’s wants to be friends with Scout but he’s being careful not to scare him away, right?

    • Good eye. Wasn’t sure anybody’d catch that, but I threw the shadow in anyway. And yes, Bigfoot’s previous attempts at making friends haven’t been too successful. So he’s trying a more subtle approach.

  2. Beautiful, beautiful work, Vince.

    • Thanks, Mark. I really appreciate that. I set out to do this comic without using gradients or blurs and this water scene was really a challenge. Sunsets are a real puzzle too. I hope it translated ok.

  3. I love the “SPLOOSH” panel! Great action and splash detail. Also, I’m glad these two are getting one step closer to actually meeting.

    • Thanks, Jeff. The “SPLOOSH” panel was fun to do. It’s tempting to make every other panel a splash panel, but I’m practicing restraint.

      And yeah, I’m glad Bigfoot and Scout are closer to actually meeting too. It’s taking a little time but I didn’t want to rush it and have it seem unbelievable. Because if there’s one thing people look for in a comic with a talking dog and a sasquatch, it’s verisimilitude.

      Thanks again for the awesome fan-art. I love it and I’m getting tons of compliments on it. -v

  4. That last panel reminds me of the latest video on Bigfoot. Have you seen it? If not here it is: http://tinyurl.com/c9o48jy
    It’s life imitating art. Or maybe Vince had a premonition this would happen. Whatever the case may be, the hikers in the video ran off proving that it’s hard for a Bigfoot to make a friend.

    Oh yeah, great art as always. I like where this is going.

    • Awesome! Thanks, Elvin! You’re the second person to send me this video tonight! I won’t claim premonition, but I will say this page of Untold Tales of Bigfoot was done a while ago, long before I saw this video. Spoooooky.

      This video does seem to back up my theory that some people, when confronted by a sasquatch, would run as far and fast as they could in the opposite direction (much like the camping dad on page three).

      Glad you dig the art and direction of the story. I’m still finding my groove, but I’m definitely getting a little faster (and more comfortable) with the illustration half of the formula, so I hope it only improves from here on out.

      Thanks for commenting, Elvin. And don’t hesitate to stop back with any real-world Bigfoot news. I’m always happy to keep the legend alive. -v
