If you haven't figured from my comments on tv.com, I LOVE Eric! The older design kinda made him look a little more like a Bouvier, imho, with the larger hair like Patty, Selma, and Marge, but the smaller hair here makes him look better and probably easier to draw. The coloring is sharp and real, and I could totally see Eric as part of the family on tv. Only one thing - if he has a voice like Marge, how did he get it? It would seem that the Bouviers only get gravelly voices from smoking - such as Patty and Selma having girlish voices in a flashback until they took up smoking - Grandma and Grandpa Bouvier were both smokers, and Marge probably got her voice from secondhand smoke - so where does Eric's come from? I'm just wondering.
