MAD's Pope on American Idol

American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey biff it up while ex-Pope Benedict cowers! Illustration for MAD Magazine (#521). Aptly, MAD has released an idiot spotlight here. Check it out, as it includes all the links to get your grubby hands on the current issue.

I've put together a quick process below - please clickity-click for a closer look....MAD#521 Pope Idol Process by Anton Emdin 2013

Basically, we have four quick thumbnail roughs on the top row - from Pope Benny nestled between Carey and Minaj's bosom, to cowering under a fight. Thumb #4 was chosen, so I moved onto the sketch on the bottom left. A small change of Minaj's hair in the revised sketch, and then on to inks (brush and ink on paper) to colour (crushed unicorns with a gopher's tail).

Thanks for stopping by!
