This week I did 3 art comps and a variant for the possible DVD cover to Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated - Season 2 and thought I'd post a separate element that I made as a variant to one of the designs I did, and it was for Professor Pericles who is a villian in the series! It may not be used in the end though. For those who don't know the process, you do several art comps based upon notes of how they want the DVD cover to look (or what story angle they want to pursue) and you do some roughs. When submitted they may like one a lot and then they'll add revisions to them, or possible they may not like any of them or the direction since they changed their minds, and you then do a round 2 (or 3, or more) of sketches till you arrive at a final rough that everyone likes. Once that's approved by all parties, you then do the final tight rough which is put "on model" and everything is locked down. Then it goes to the final color art stage after a light color theory preliminary is submitted so they can see how you imagine the color theory going for the final art.
And I'll be working on Tom and Jerry's DVD cover this weekend as well, which is a round 3, since I now have the new title logo to work with and new art direction.
