Playboy Cartoon with Preliminaries: February 2008

Doug's full-page color cartoon, published in the February 2008 (p. 91) issue of Playboy, was also reproduced on p. 111 in The Art of Doug Sneyd, published by Dark Horse Books in July 2011.  The 248-page hardcover book, now also available in a softcover edition, features 270 of Doug's full-page color cartoons.

caption:  "I already have a husband.  I'm just looking for someone who wants to be my valentine."

Doug's loose-style gag rough (8 1/2 x 11 on standard copy paper) approved by Hef:  "OK H" in red pencil

Early pencil prelims (approximately 7 x 9 on light tracing paper) typically follow the blocking out of characters and setting of the scene done in the loose-style gag rough.

The following sequence of pencil prelims shows, however, how much revision Doug did before going to final art.
