Well, ladies and gents, John Hodgeman's latest volume, "More Information Than You Require" has been released, including a list of 700 Mole-Men.

I, like many on Flickr, am making contributions to a collection of illustrations of those illustrious Mole-Men.

Here's the first. I'll be putting them here, not in the Doodle thread. The goal is to produce one a day, or so.

    the ears turn me off. they scream more gollum or gremlin/goblin than they do molemen.

    They will not all have the same ears. Of course, Hodgman's excellent discussion of the origins of Mole-men makes it clear that they are not, in fact, related to moles or men.

    Goddamnit, the one thing I did not want to see today is a mole-man pimping out maggots.

    Here's 10 through 12. It'd be nice if people let me know what they think, here.

    I like the coloring of 1-7 best. 8 and 9 are hard to make out and the last three have weird contrast.
    How many were you planning on doing?

    I don't know; there are 700 on the list, so we'll see how far I get

    The last three are me shooting for a bit of Mignola's style, i.e. noirish. I'm bouncing back and forth between styles. Thanks for the comments.

    I really like 10-12 but the black levels are whats throwing it off for me. Keep em coming though.

    These are great - 8 and 9 are fantastic and I like the 12th best out of the Mignola-esque ones; not quite at MM's level yet (I'm sure you're not offended by this!) but he is deceptively good at his style of work, and it's a good stab at it.

    Great project overall, I would never have the patience for it, so good luck and keep it up. 8-)

    Really liking 1-7. On 10-12 I like 12 the best, think you got the best use of contrast down on that one, the others. I think EA is right about the black levels being a little high, maybe that's what's buggin' me. Still awesome though man.

    They look like they could use a bump up in contrast, but the designs and linework is superb!

    I like the second one, even though its a bit looser than the other ones.
