This looks more like the rendition that comes to mind when I read the book (or listen to the Audiobook as you said!) I *love* this, this is perfect.
Curry's Pennywise was no slouch, mind you...
But this.

I really, really like this! As much as I liked the movie version of IT, one thing that always bugged me about it was how Tim Curry never looked friendly. Pennywise in the book used his clown face to attract kids, and I just can't ever imagine any kid wanting to come up and talk to someone who looked like Curry's it. But your Pennywise on the left is just perfect! Completely normal, harmless-looking goofy clown, just like he's supposed to be! :D

I like that the one on the right looks has the kind of face you can trust to hire for your kid's birthday party, and the one on the left is nopekillitwithfire.

I fav'd this a while ago but looking at it again, I have to say that I really like how you drew the non-evil version.  Too many artists (and the TV miniseries with Tim Curry) focus on him being creepy.  But the whole point of the clown-form was to draw kids in.

I really love this. What so many artists forget when drawing Pennywise (and the miniseries forgot as well, much as I love it) is that the clown guise isn't supposed to be obviously scary. The clown is meant to lure children in, it should look friendly and unthreatening. It's the change into something horrible after it's too late that creates the fear IT loves.

This is really cool. Here you might actually think the children could be drawn to him. The Tim Curry version would have been scary even if it didn't kill children. This gives a better, and I think, more creepy contrast between what Pennywise tries to appear to be, versus what he actually is.

Wonderful, I love how you've captured the essence of the idea behind Pennywise. I remember when I was a kid, I saw the miniseries and asked my father (an avid King fan) what IT was like in the book, to which he replied "He's a hell of a lot nicer and a hell of a lot meaner". You did an excellent job of giving him this very friendly and innocent appearance and then demonizing it in an instant like something right out of a nightmare and I congratulate you on such a job well-done :clap:

so you like the steven weber naration.. just finished the book all 44hours of listening enjoyment... i learned several things in listening to the book. 1.) my fear of clowns is justified, punch them first run away second. 2.) if i ever saw a kid getting bullied like in the book, i dang sure wouldn't just say "stop it". 3.) wondering if the new version of IT will be even scarier and closer to the book.
anyways great pic and you captured mr. bob gray perfectly... now you could do a IT graphic novel .. love your work!!
