Stoopid! #1

Stoopid! Magazine #1 has just dropped, man! Lots of funny goodness inside. I think it is a good combination of cartoonists. Kind of like (dare I say it) the variety of cartoonists from Mad Magazine. My favorite one for this issue is the one on the back cover by Paco Puente. Get your copy of Stoopid! here…https://www.stoopidcomicsmagazine.com/

Recycled

                                         from this

                                            to this

                      Basically the same idea. Another thing is, if you pay attention to the general proportions of the two strips, you can see the difference between them. I believe that this may be the reason that I abandoned The Anonymous. The size wasn’t compliant with most syndicates.

 

Pencil and Pen

After the skeleton stage, I sketch using drawing pencils. Most of my artwork is 50% sketching and 50% erasing. When I am satisfied with the sketch, I trace it using a drawing pen. What you see above is the pen portion of this equation. At this point I am basically committing myself to my drawing and layout decisions. The only thing that changes after this is purely cosmetic. The outline, shading, shadowing, and color.
