Jeez, his name is a bitch to spell!

Anyway, this was a commission for :icondwilesjr: who requested I draw Mr. Mxyzptlk turning Lois Lane into something. Of course my mind reeled with possibilities, and toilet was approaching the top of my list. But I realized how I really wanted whatever I turned Lois into to be recognizable as Lois. So a statue was a natural choice, plus gave me decent fodder for a gently naughty gag (unless DA tells me I have to, I refuse to put any kind of advisory on this because she's topless. She's a statue with no nipples, for Pete's sake).

In case anyone takes notice, yes, I did intentionally make Mr. Mxyzptlk look like the Grinch. That Chuck Jones' expression just seemed a good fit for the character.

It was an afterthought, but once this was drawn, it just made sense to me to put this drawing on an actual Lois Lane comic book. I scanned in an old one from a book I had, erased the previous cover art and changed the issue number to zero, then slapped my drawing on top. I could have gone the extra mile and done filters to make it look distressed and vintage, but A. I didn't want to obscure the artwork, and B. I really don't have the foggiest notion how to do that.

If anyone digs this commission, I'm open for others. Hit me up and let me know!

Wow, I can't believe Mister Kltpzyxm would do that!

I love it. It could be so great if you would make mr. Mxyzp turn louis into a cute pigglet on a Silver plante or a chicken / thanks giving turky for dinner🙂
With her human face still attached. 
Just a fun idea. Would love to hear what you think of it. 👍

I have the whole collection of Lois Lane, except this issue.

It's not just Lois that Myx fancies. He's been chasing after Lana (Supe's old High School girlfriend), Super Girl, and pretty much every girl that is involved with the Man of Steel (except for Mrs. Kent, but in the 90's cartoons where Mrs. Kent is portrayed as a "silver fox" he might've.....).

He briefly stopped chasing after does gals when he meant Gysby (that red-head woman he used to hang around with), until Mxy proposed to Gysby, revealing her true form, a really old woman succubus.

After that, Mxy went back to his old tricks again.

Love your comic cover, it's great. I especially loved Mr. Mxyzptlk's punch line, it's hilarious.
Although it's funny, at first glace I didn't even notice that Lois's breasts were exposed. :D (Big Grin)

SHE'S NAKED?!?!?!?

Well, topless at least. But sans nipples, so it's hardly controversial.

We weren't offended. We actually love yer Lois Lane/Mxyzptlk stuff.

We were just surprised! Before this, we thought she was wearing a gown!

How Lois would be saved...

Art critic-"Excellent work of art. Just think, Mr. Kltpzyxm will be the most famous sculptor since Michelangelo."
Mxyzptlk-"Just one small problem with that, chief. The name's not Kltpzyxm. It's Mxyzptlk. But this is gonna be my own private... Aw, nuts." *Poof!*
Art critic (Removing his disguise, revealing he's Superman)-"Works every time."

I am in complete agreement with Mr. M re. Lois' need for more boobage. As the late, great humor columnist Lewis Grizzard once said of Lois, she must be really dense not to make the Clark/Superman connection even with the glasses and suit (same height, build, and voice), and she ought to be busted down to obituary editor for a paper in Kansas. As for spelling Mr. M's name, how about making him say it backwards to make him go away? (Sounding a lot like "sipple skim" in the Justice League cartoons of yore).

EmmetEarwax Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
No, you didn't make Mr. Mzylptlk look like the GRINCH, more like - Cheech Wizard (who's depravity knows no limits -unless he won't rape toddlers).
LordofDarkA Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2011
I gotta say this is a great pic, I could see somthing like that happening (maybe not adding bigger boobs, but rescupting her ya). But what really made me giggle is that as I read how you used the cover of a real comic for the back ground, I looked up to see the CCA stamp was left on it. If you are familiar with comics at all then that is a great jab at them. ^^

EmmetEarwax Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
One version of Mr.Mxylptlk has it that he is actually NOT bound by the rule that if he says his name backwards, he is forced to return to his home dimension for 90 days. He simply agreed to abide by that rule, as Superman preferred him to play games by earth standards; earth games have rules. How long he'll stick to hat agreement since Superman bests him every time, is anybody's guess !

Pretty funny, since there have been occasions where Lois *has* been turned into a statue or store window manikin. but in that severe '50s work dress and stiff artistic style, the effect was never very pleasing.
MellissaLynn Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow...if he can use that stuff and improve Lois, can you imagine what he'd do to Power Girl? Yikes...

Found the issue where Lois Lane is turned into a glass statue.

mtmind714 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2010
think the pic is great, now i kind of want to see how this would turn out if it was a real comic.
Gildsoul Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Mr. Mxyzptlk once turned Lois into a department store mannequin. Lois has also been turned into a snow statue at an ice festival, into a glass statue (The Rainbow Doom issue from 1950's). And a granite statue by Lex Luthor back in the 1940's. A recent issue had Bizzaro holding a stone Lois Lane on the cover, but it turned out to be just a statue Bizzaro made, Darn!

I once did a drawing of a solid gold Lois Lane looking statue, have to dig it out.
FMTFluver Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2010
Mxyzptlk is pronounced Mix-yez-PIT-el-ek. (It used to be mix-yez-PIT-lek until someone at DC realized the last two syllables came awfully close to sounding like "pit lick.") It's a shame the new rules for using proper nouns in Scrabble are only for in the UK. Can you imagine the score you could get for "Mxyzptlk?!"

hmmm a Lois Lane toilet, theres always next time I never would have thought of that outcome btw your Mxyzptlk is probably the best i've seen anywhere I truly love that lil midget man from the 5th Dimension
cmqqmc Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2010
Shouldn't Mxyzptlk be saying "...A little further DOWN the alphabet?"

i.e. UP implies higher or earlier letters like B or A, while I am sure the intent is to imply D...

sorry for being picky...

it's an awesome idea!
operative274 Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2010
I keep thinking about Fender for some reason ;)

Nicely done sir!! And aa VERY clever job with the comic cover - I'm sure there's a filter or two that could make the ye olde style cover look.

heck even do a dA search for a tutorial on it! - They've got tutorials for everything lol.

Once again, well done sir - y'made me laugh when I needed it ^_^
JayFosgitt Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2010  Professional Artist
Hadn't thought of it at the time, but now that you mention it, I can see the Fender connection!

I just wish they made these filters easier to find and use. I don't want to have to go into Photoshop and dick around with levels and such. I just wanna slap the damn thing on there and be done with it!
operative274 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2010
I just like how you used 'slap' and 'dick' in the same paragraph :giggle:

But I do understand where you're coming from - I just want to get it DONE, NOW dammit! :shakefist: Actually, my problem lies more along the lines of finding the perfect font for whatever it is I'm using. ^^; I'll get distracted not being able to find a font in my list, then I'll just spend the next hour or so looking for it on the net and then finding a dozen more I can 'use'

Truth be told tho - a lot of that filtering and such is just a lot of trial and error - I know I've had to google some tutorials for some of the effects I use and they've been well worth it.

I'm surprised you don't look into doing this kind of stuff sir - I know you to go out of your way as far as researching stuff. :D
JayFosgitt Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2010  Professional Artist
Yeah, but my researching doesn't really apply to technology. I don't have much of a brain for it, much to my dismay.
