Playboy Cartoon: Color Rough - July 1998

caption:  "I'd ask you in for a drink but my husband's a light sleeper."

All of Doug's preliminary pencil and color roughs are hand-drawn; for the color rough - "testing" color selections before going to final art - Doug typically xeroxes the final pencil rough and then applies aniline dyes.

He was confident about his initial color selections and decided not to finish the color rough:  image area 8 1/2 x 11 on heavy card stock.

The full-page color cartoon - p. 87 in the July 1998 issue of Playboy -  was also reproduced in Chapter 5, p. 110, Married Life in the 248-page hardcover book The Art of Doug Sneyd, published by Dark Horse Books in July 2011.
