On the Drawing Board

January 24th, 2007 | Posted in General

I’m still working hard on that MAD TV parody, but had to take a break Tuesday to wrap this poster job up:


Now it’s back to working on the color for the parody. The splash spread alone is taking a lot longer than a normal splash, as it has a lot going on in it. As I mentioned I cannot post any sneak peeks at the art, but it will be in issue #476, on the stands in March.

    Looks really great Tom and with the color added, the ball looks cool too! Way to go!

  2. Tom says:

    Thanks, Steve. I appreciated your comments on the pencils. You were absolutely right in your comment, and I would have fixed that if it wouldn’t have entailed so much rethinking. Thanks for all your comments here.

    This looks great, Tom!

    I know I’m only seeing this picture at a smaller size, but I wanted to know how you colored the foliage in the trees. There’s so much depth and texture!
