Mulan 2 comic



This was a 4 pager story I did for Disney Adventures magazine a while back. It was a comic that was to tie into the "Mulan 2" traves- uh--film--that was about to come out. I had worked on the original animating Mushu (as if you didn't know already, everyone says I won't shut up about it...) but this was the only thing I even remotely had to do with the sequel. The editor at Disney Adv. mag got me because he said he had a MUSHU comic for me. He hooked me good. When I saw the script, I found that Mushu's not in it much. By then it was too late, I had committed. In the feature, I only drew Mushu. This had everyone else but ShanYu in it, but I kinda enjoyed drawing all of these other characters that I never got the chance to draw all those years ago. Shang was a little tough, though. So, a quick turnaround later, this was the original pencils for the book. I hope they are in order above. I drew two pages per sheet of stock comic book art paper. Disney Adv. mag is so small, that is still bigger than it will be when published. I learned that after doing a few of these comics for them over the years. One of the inkers finally told me, "Hey, can you do them two per sheet, it makes it go quicker for me.". I think I sold these originals at the San Diego con a couple years ago.

Nice stuff! I'm not a fan of "cheapquels", but the art on these sketches is a lot of fun to look at.

Looks great as always Tom. It's tough when you get "suckered" into things like that, but I think it all turned out great just the same! All I can say is well done sir!

Tom, your work is amazing. It's nice to hear that an experienced pro like yourself can still get roped into a project. Makes me feel a bit better about all those free bees and pro bonos I've done. oh well. If you have a chance I recently started my own blog (flipstudios@blogspot.com). I'd love to hear your thoughts.
