A "Behind the Scenes" look...

It's funnier if you're drunk.

This upcoming Tuesday (February 12th), I am lucky enough to have my next KeenSpot NewsBox appearance. I actually put some work into this thing, and decided to sort of chronicle my process starting with the first rough sketch, to the final polished image.<P>If you are interested in seeing the creative process that created my latest NewsBox image, click on the link below to check it out. I broke the whole process out into a series of 10 different pages to make it easier and quicker to load...<P> <A HREF="http://www.mrchuckshow.com/newsbox_creation/newsbox_creation_01.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.mrchuckshow.com/newsbox_creation/newsbox_creation_01.html</A> <P>If you have any comments, please post them here on this thread. Thanks...<P>

Definitely a way-cool feature, there, Myers! Like my esteemed colleague PsychoAg, I'm no artist, but I dug watching the process, especially of the evolution of the actual drawing. I didn't know all the steps that went into it. I have a greater respect for you! <P>The popular consensus seems to be that the drawing rocks, as well. I was helping a student, and he glanced over to see what was on my screen and caught a glimpse of the drawing. "Wow!" he exclaimed in his broken English, "What is <I>THAT</I>?!" I explained the situation, and he emphatically indicated his approval of the drawing. Judging by his opinion of Samantha Fox as the epitome of feminine beauty, I'd imagine that Kim was the hook there. Nevertheless, it works!

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Of course the art is good and all, but what no one else has the balls to say is, "WE FINALLY GOT TO SEE KIM'S BOOBIES!!!!" Woo-Hoo!!<P>< said in Homer J. Simpson's voice > "Boooobies..."<P>But seriously, that really was a very interesting look into the production of "the show"...<p>[This message has been edited by Hans P. IceBat (edited 02-13-2002).]

John,<P>The newsbox is really nifty! So is the insight into your creative process. We need to be reminded of the amount of work that goes into your strip.

That totally rocked! It's always fun to see the gears turning before a finished product is revealed. It is said that when Da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa, he actually painted himself roughly and then made himself into a woman. Glad to see you don't do this when drawing Kim.<P>I really liked seeing the thought process that you used, especially with regard to the "balance" of the picture. It is something (being a non-artist) that I never considered, but once you mentioned it, it made a lot of sense. I also really like the 3-D background thing, it adds a LOT to the picture.<P>Maybe I will have to try something like that one day with The Retorts. If you saw how many times I rewrite those damn things, you would vomit. Sometimes I even play "1984" and rewrite them months later if I think of something good, and no one is the wiser. (I don't rewrite the letters though once I send them out.) Muahahaha!<P>------------------

I agree wholeheartedly with the boobies post.
I also like the stuff you wrote about that time.

I decided to bump this one, just because I still think it's pretty cool, especially the final image...
