Welcome back, readers, to another edition of Sketchbook Sunday! Now let's take a look at yet another thumbnail sketch.
As I explained last time, I only occasionally do thumbnail drawings of Tiffany & Corey cartoons. Since this creation of mine emphasizes humor over plot, continuity, drama and so on, it does not require the sheer level of preparation and work that my arthouse comics Sunnyville Stories do. But I digress.
This is what I came up with before doing the Friend For Lunch cartoon. I thought the Frankenstein monster here didn't look grotesque or shocking enough. In this case, the humor relies on anticipation. We know Tiffany is about to get a big surprise when she sees Corey's "friend" so I came up with the character in the final cartoon linked above.
Hello, readers. From today until the last Sunday in March, there'll be a feature here called "Sketchbook Sundays". I'll share with you rough work of all kinds regarding Tiffany & Corey!
Anyway, let's get on with the show.
In contrast to Sunnyville Stories which is more "artistic", Tiffany & Corey tends to be more spontaneous. Sometimes I may do thumbnails to determine characters used, composition and placement of props. I usually don't do this but there are times I will do this.
The caption you see above was what I finally settled on. I tried a few other combinations like "sodium", "fat" and "cholesterol" but I thought MSG sounded the funniest. I also debated using King Kong instead of Superman.
