Jaqai Mickelsen - Past Topic

Whelp.  I love me some Muppets.  And, Mr. Jim Henson recently had a birthday. :)

Aw, sweet. Great use of white space.

yeah, and cool stylized shapes and gradients, jaqai! the posture is very lifelike, but the flat arm does a good job of reminding us he's a puppet.

Dude. This is so poignant. Jim Henson sure did leave a huge void. Well done.

Also: He was born in 1936?!? That means he was 40 when the Muppet Show first aired! Dang. This middle-aged dude finds that really inspiring.

Thanks guys.

Actually, I pulled a slight Lucas, and made an update to it after it was posted. I realized when I came back, that I completely ignored the reality of the lighting on the shadows for his hand and the cupcake.

Fixed. Hurray!

Sniff. The candle's out but Kermit's still smiling. This hit me right in the feels.

Really really well done.
