Sketch o’the Week- The Swallowing!

The Swallowing 1-2
Clicky to Embiggen…

As promised, here’s the pencil sketch for the splash page of MAD‘s “The Swallowing”, a parody of “The Following” TV show. I’ve taken to doing my roughs digitally these days as it seems to go a bit faster and I am free to move elements about and resize them on-the-fly. Plus I don’t think as much about the quality of the pencil line and am therefore a bit looser with the work, leading to drawing more with the inks.

MAD #525 will be on news stands December 17th.

    Tom–do you then print out a blue-line and ink traditionally or are you inking digitally as well?

    • Tom says:

      I usually print out the roughs at twice up and ink traditionally using a light table. Only a few areas I will do done additional pencil work first, mostly it’s right to the inks.
