Sketch o’the Week

May 9th, 2012 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

Have to cheat on the SotW this week as I am too busy with deadlines to do anything new. Thus, here is a small portion of the pencil sketch of a much bigger piece I did last month for a special project that will remain unnamed until such time as it’s released.


  1. Dan McConnell says:

    Can’t wait to see the finish. Great job on Thing!

  2. Scott Evans says:

    I look forward to seeing the whole completed picture. How long does it take you, from sketch to competition to finish a design like this?

    • Tom says:

      This is only a small part of a big, 1 1/2 page spread. The entire piece is pretty complex with many dozens of other characters. I probably spent 2 days from roughs to tight pencil.

  3. Scott Evans says:

    I can imagine, I would love to get work like that. How long though will the entire colour picture take to complete?

  4. Mark Engblom says:

    Hmmm. Judging by the use of Peek-a-Boo Window Powergirl and the leering Ben Grimm (“It’s Slobberin’ Time!”), I’m guessing something for a “men’s magazine”.

  5. Brilliant pencil sketch. Thought I’d just mention that I’m thoroughly enjoying the MAD caricature book and only wish I could draw one-tenth as well as you!

  6. Sebastian S. says:

    I’m going to bet a million bucks that this is an Avengers Mad movie parody. The movie was absolutely incredible and I absolutely cannot wait for this issue of Mad to be released.

  7. Calvin says:

    Gee Tom, that superhero lady’s boobs are bigger than her head.
