Loopy goes MAD by Loopydave Loopy goes MAD by Loopydave
It's been too long...
Was fortunate enough to do this cover for MAD US. Silly Star Wars stuff ... right up my alley!

Pencil Sketch, paint in photoshop.

Voodoo, coffee stains, Tetris and sardines in a Star Wars setting. How can anybody top that?😂 Great work

Thanks most kindly. Not many people seemed to have picked up the coffee stains, so kudos on your sharp eye there too.

So you're the one who did this for MAD!  I own that issue and I loved this cover!  Haha, I didn't know that Han and Chewie had to pick up coffee, blue eggs, and milk on the Kessel Run! :lmao:

Aww, thank you. Glad you like... always wanted to do a MAD cover and it was so cool to be able to do it.
Had to add the shopping list reminder as they forgot to pick it up last Kessel run ;)

-Rawr-o-rariddi-rawr(Han my companion in crime, thine course doth seems to take straight to the heart of that neutron star, whose approaching at our mightily luminous velocities would spell our unmaking. Surely you can't be serious?)

Thanks Not-Shirley. Always great to run into someone who actually understands 'wookie' - I find it difficult to differentiate between what I assume are the noises made from a particularly painful bout of indigestion and actual communication.

You don't participate in the Life Day ceremony without some benefits, though every year this strange little man from California is apprehended by security forces trying to smuggle antimatter bombs onto the planet. He always talks about poetry, rhymes and letting the past die, even killing it if he has to.

I used to post art every fortnight on Da; haven't had much time to draw since I got my school teacher job, too much to focus on.

Hehe! Had to put that in, even though the editor at MAD said that that bit would be covered with text ;)

And covered by copyright?
Or does that fall under the "fair review" banner?

I'm pretty sure everything in MAD is covered under satire rules... and Alfred E Newmans face ;)

Indeed.  Someone looking like Alfred E Neuman dates back at least to 1894 and has appeared in advertising here and there until MAD made him their own in 1954.

What ? MAD still exists ? Was reading it amongst my father's comics when I was a kid (I'm 54) ! Still remember some stories, a King Kong comic, ... The kid's face made me open the picture.

Excellent work as always. Been a big fan of your work for a long time..I read a long time ago that you only use the  mouse  to do your work in photoshop is that true ?
Reply
:iconloopydave:
Loopydave Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2018  Professional
It is, in fact, true. I draw stuff up on paper with a pencil, scan it in and then paint over it using the mouse. I've been doing it for so many years that I've gotten used it it I guess.

It does seem as though I consider the addition of the sardine as the reason for my praise but its the fact that you did a cover for MAD lol. I do like me some sardines though :D
