Calamity James by Splapp-me-do Calamity James by Splapp-me-do
It's Calamity James and Alexander Lemming! They're characters from the Beano, which is a British comic for all you foreigners out there. =P

They used to be my favourite characters back when I used to read it, and my drawing style now is kinda based on Tom Paterson's (the artist) style. Oooh, I do love it so!

Also, if there was a Top 10 hardest cartoon characters to draw right, i'm pretty sure Calamity James would be number 1. It took me aaages to get him looking right. Especially THAT bloody SHOE! Grrarrrhhrrhjgggh!

My word that's good! I've tried to draw James many times in the past and all have been complete failures because of how unique the style is. I love all of the random signs and objects that James never seems to notice.

Oh GOD he was my favorite comic character!

The BEANO has gone WAY downhill man, since 2003 there hasn't been anything funny in it! They've turned it into a kids puzzle magazine with a few comic strips now! :(
