He does look a little like Earthworm Jim. But I dont think thats a bad thing, if he were colored I dont think it would look so much like Jim. And those are some pretty sweet shoes.

Really, I don't think he looks like EWJ. I think it's generally the shoulder build that catches people, but this is actually quite an original character. I love the exaggerated upper body - it shows so much personality. The shoes rule!

I also watched the demo for the game - and it looks truly awesome! Keep it up!

Well, this time the character clearly doesn't look like EWJ, it oly has the same "bone" structure, and for me that doesn't counts.

And it doesn't "look like him" but the pose and the clothes resemble the ones of Detective Walker, the main guy from Powers, and I know it was unintended, is just that it would be easy for me to visualize Walker in that pose, only with a "police line" tag behind and some heavy shadows... :D

*patpat* he doesn't look like Earthworm Jim.

He looks like Turmoil Tom. ^_^

And I applaud you on your shoe-drawing skills. My characters do not wear shoes for the simple reason that I cannot draw shoes. XP

Pffff. How could that look like Earthworm Jim? The only thing that looks similar to that video game's style is the face. That's all. I really like how you draw your poses. So simple, yet fluid. >3 I know, I sound confusing. I'll just shut up before I shorten the supply of oxygen in this room....

He doesn't look like Jim to me, honestly, although your style in general reminds me of the stretchy feel of the game and the show and various other similar styles-es. I always thought of that as a good thing, personally.

Moo. *cuddle* It looks damn spiffy, regardless.

I just realised something, why didn't you put Turmoil Tom in your "Favorite Character" poll.
I mean, sure with all your characters, all of them can't be on it, but he's cool enough to be a contender...

I do like this new design and those are undoubtedly cool shoes, but there's one major thing missing from this version that needs to carry over from the last set of Turmoil Tom pics you did:
Check out the awesome way you drew his muscley arms on the last version. It added a lot and needs to stay.

he isnt ewj, he obvisiously isnt a worm with a high tech body suit, yes he has a resemblence but he is completely different, probably characterwise.

nice shoe do you know a retailer that would sell those shoes? jk i think the hair was a nice touch, but the shoes as you mentioned are very cool

I like the shoes the best. TOM HAZ COOL SHOOZ.
It's difficult for me to tell where the hair ends, and the hat starts. It is a rough pencil sketch, I'll grnat you that.

Still. Tom's shooz are the coolest.

Did you give him hair? Pretty spiffy. And yes, those are the best shoes EVAH! Only reason anyone can TRY to compare him to Earthworm Jim is because they can't set their attention to anything other than video games in the past ten years. I know that when I first saw EWJ, I saw his look somewhere, but I still don't know where. I mean more like his proportions...

Im sorry to say he does have a EWJ persona about him, an outline design if you will.
Iíd have to say its mostly the face, that is Jimís face.
The slender head, the bulgy eyes, the over sized mouth, its Jimís head.
Yes he has a ponytail instead of a little wormy tail thing.
And yes heís clothes are different, oh and he has a hat.
But on the outlining design, he still looks like Earthworm Jim.
And weather you just want to rant at me or ignore me, your still going to have to come to grips with the fact of it.
You may be a very talented illustrator, but your just re-illustrating someone elseís character.

He does look like Earth Worm Jim. Except Jim's neck had worm segments. But I recall you mentioning before that you had a character that people said look like Earth Worm Jim. But it's not.

Don't worry, I'm not going to say that he's like Earthworm Jim. It's probably the huge chest that makes people think that way. Anyway, I personlly liked how you added that ponytail hair on him. It adds a nice touch to his character.

I was tempted by the sarcasm demons to say it looked like Jim, but I have had one to many cannon shots to the face today. Tom was always one of my favorites from the gallery and this upgrade just makes him one step cooler. I really love your style and wish I had that ability to create such dynamic characters. Donít let all the comparison get you down. Everything looks like something, weather it was caused by inspiration or coincidence. Keep up the amazing art.
