Scooby-Doo #133 Cover Art! Welcome To The Jungle!

Here's the new cover I did for DC Comics for Scooby-Doo #133 this week. Finished it early Friday after tweaking the color a hair or two and loaded it up to them via the FTP. I'm really, really happy with the design of how it came out. The triangle of danger (Mayan Mummy, Snake and Gator) frames Shaggy and Scooby and draws the eye right to them since they are the focus. The angle of the sinking temple and the log the guys are on gives it movement even though they are still. It was a rush job and as usual with rush jobs I seem to do better work because I don't overthink the thing and keep going back into it and keep screwing with it. Sometimes the first thing one does is the best thing. Below this text I've attached the cover again with the logos and UPC symbol I use as a guide when I draw. I also came up with two word balloons and the title text as well to help sell the idea to the editor since there were no thumbnails again in the creation of this piece. The text could change as well on the final printed version. The final printed comic will be out in June!

DC Comics also loaded me up with a ton of work! I got two Scooby-Doo scripts FedEx'ed to me Thursday night and then I got 4 Ed, Edd n Eddy scripts to draw today from another editor! Apparently I'm the only artist for the Eds now so I got the motherload! Yowza!!! They all have loose deadlines as well! I couldn't believe it! I'll have to fit them in between the final Power Rangers art that I'm still waiting on Disney to give me the final approvals for. Always good to be busy!! Enjoy! And as always, you can click the image to see the bigger version.
