Here’s a picture of the full cover for the fourth issue (back to front) without the title and price box to obscure your view of Oscar’s glee.
So I did something a little differently when drawing this one.
When digital inking in photoshop I have to zoom in pretty close to the artwork, so I wondered: Why not pencil the cover in actual size? This is always kind of risky since it’s much harder to hide imperfections and add small details if the art will not be reduced in size at all. But at the same time, it forces you to keep things simple, since you don’t have all that space to work with. So, anyway, I took the plunge. The original penciled artwork is the exact same size as the physical copies of the issue.
