Muppet Team-Up


This is another commission. The brief was to do my own take on this old Marvel Team-Up cover, only with Muppets instead of the Marvel characters.  So here's what I came up with.

I was surprised at how rusty I was at drawing the Muppet characters - I needed reference for Sweetums, and that hasn't happened in a while. Better brush up on the rest of the cast before I do any conventions or anything...

I do enjoy drawing gnarly trees, mind.

  1. You're on to something here. Brilliant! Did you ink the cross hatch of the trees by hand?

  2. Oh my yes! I do still have some old sheets of Zip-A-Tone in a box, but I like a bit of cross-hatching - plus, it won't drop off in ten years if it's exposed to direct sunlight.

  3. Zip-a-Tone! Ha... Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman might pay a pretty penny for that! Well... maybe Kevin... not sure Peter is still doing turtles stuff!

  4. Roger,

    I colorized your line art for a blog post. I tried to maintain a mid '70s coloring style. I hope you don't mind. You see/read more at... http://tophatsasquatch.com/roger-langridge-marvel-team-up-and-me/
