Dodging Bullets

Fubar unsuccessfully dodges bullets when he is caught napping in his trusty biplane.

From a behind-the-scenes perspective, I wasted a lot of time on this cartoon.  I couldn’t seem to get the swirling dogfight action that I wanted and ended up drawing 8, yes 8, full sized WWI biplanes and then either cropping, shrinking, or masking all of them.  I am still painfully slow at doing color work, so doing 8 individual planes took most of the last two days.   Here is one of them at more or less full size:

I didn't make up the wild colors.

  1. Well, this move is getting pretty exciting ” Meet The Fokkers” the sequel.

    On a Shop Talk Note : the presentation of the action is terrific !!

    1. Thanks J.P. I really appreciate the compliment J.P.!

  2. I dig the graphic novel style your strip is taking on. You do amazing art work.

    1. Thanks Allan! I have kind of drifted into the graphic novel/comic book style unintentionally. All of the color was just to support Fubar’s vivid imagination.
