SCOOBY-DOO Cover Art For Books 13 And 14!

Here are the two new covers to the Scooby-Doo You Choose series for Capstone. These are Books 13 and 14 and are being worked on now. The roughs were finally approved this week for the interior art so it moves to the inking and coloring phase. I guess they should be out early next year as far as I know but that could change. I think they came out pretty colorful and you can see them here free of all the logos and titles.

SCOOBY-DOO Comic Chapter Books Cover Art!

These are the final covers for a NEW series of Scooby-Doo books from Capstone! These are kind of like the Scooby-Doo You Choose books though instead of a single page illustration we now have a full panel comic page to help tell the story. I would post the titles for the books but I think the titles of the stories changed from what I had on the manuscripts. That happens most of the time once the books are done and they tighten things up. These covers were also done differently than I did the others in that I had to do all the elements separately meaning I have the Hero Art on one layer, then the white comic panel gutters on another, and then the three comic panels under that on separate layers or all on one layer. Working in layers makes it easier to shimmy things around if we need to. There are 4 books and I believe they will be out in the fall of this year. I started them in mid-October of last year and finished them mid-February and it was a tight deadline to get them all done on time so that's why I was busy and not posting. I think they came out cool and colorful!

As I was finishing these books up I found out that Capstone is doing yet another Two Scooby You Choose books! So I should be starting work on Books 13 and 14 on in another month! I have one cover roughed out and am awaiting art direction on the other.

SCOOBY-DOO Cover Art For Books 11 And 12!

Well, these are sure late in being posted. Yes, I'm still here. Just been busy was not feeling inspired to post anything and noticed that it's been a full year since Alfie passed. The time flew for me here but I've been busy! I forgot to post these covers as these two books have been out for a while now but here you can see the full art for Scooby-Doo You Choose Books 11 and 12!
