Here's my rough of Fred's Fantastic Four Roast Cover done for Robert Goodin's Covered Blog.
I rearranged the characters and tried to create my own jokes. I tried to think of it as the same party but with stronger (possibly spiked) booze at the open bar.
Here's my brush inked cover. Note the lack of black spotting as I intended on painting it in watercolor. .
Here's Fred's original....Terry Austin inked it. I love it. Interestingly enough, Fred did a couple more versions as commissions with different characters interspersed about. Check them out at Comic Art Fans here and right here. Rom Spaceknight even appears on one of them. Check out Fred's website here.
Please send me the original panel and your version.
Include a link to your website!
Repaneled is done for fun (no money)….for Art’s sake…as a tribute…..to make fun of something ....whatever you want it to be.
1. Try to avoid PARODY 2. You can recompose the panel if you want….any style is fine. 3. Splash pages and double-page spreads count as panels. 4. Hand-lettering is best (in my opinion)….but a computer font is fine. 5. Keep file sizes smaller: 72 d.pi. and no bigger than 15 inches wide or tall. 6. You can reproportion the panel if you want (a square can become a rectangle) 7. Please don’t include information, like your website, in your REPANELED image. I’ll provide a link to your site within the text.
8. PLEASE provide a link to the comics.org entry of the comic you have redrawn. That provides me info on the original comic, PLEASE include the name of the writer and artist(s), as well as publisher and year of publication. THANKS!
9. If you would like to sell your original, send me a link where it can be purchased and I will link to it in the text of the post.
10. Comic Strips are fair game (Prince Valiant, Popeye) Avoid gag panels like Far Side.
I'll try and get back to you ASAP as to when it will be posted.
