MAD about X-men

Here's my latest MAD cover parodying the X-men 3 movie, with Alfred as Wolverine giving a quick haircut to Beast, Professor X, Storm and Cyclops in the foreground. All the characters were digitally painted separately using the 'paperboy' method I explained a few blog entries ago (see Tutorials), then compiled in Photoshop for the final art. Also I've included a closeup of the Beast, who I think turned out the best of the lot.

EDIT: Upon the MAD art director's request, I've changed the background colour from green to blue. I think this works better.

That's AMAZING! Was it actually published? From which issue is it? And was a parody made?

she-thing- Thanks!

Yeah it was a published cover for MAD magazine Australia. I can't remember the issue and I'd say the Xmen parody was just a reprint from the U.S. issue.

Wow Mr. Wahl, this is an honour-'speaking' to a mad artist! XD Just printed and displayed the cover together with my other MAD X-Mags.

Saludos and Merry X-Mas!
