...these are a grouping of Mars Attacks cards featuring giant mutant creatures, that I refer to as "Daytime Terrors" for obvious reasons...
(I wanted to have an excuse to draw girls in bikinis!)

This close-up is of a kolor/ink test card that I illustrated, prior to submitting art-style sample images to Topps...(this was just a test)

Alright here is some rare insider stuff!
These are the art-style sample images that I submitted to Topps...
I did these w/the intent of getting the invite to work on the Mars Attacks Invasion set...
I speculated that Topps would provide sketch card artists w/uncut sheets of cards 9 up...So I penciled them on a "mock-up" sheet that I based on the Heritage series card blanks, then kolorized them in the technique that I proposed to utilize...
FYI(I still possess this one of a kind item!... if any BO forum MA fanatics are interested contact me via the forum or email through my website)

...if you compare this 2 card w/the above posted sample/test cards, you might notice I "revisited" some of the test images...(oddly enough I tended to reinterpret them from single card to 2 cards!...this was right after Topps put in the call to the artists for the 2,3 & 4 card puzzles...)

Yes, the "bonus" pencil sketch you sent along with the sketch you did for me.. ( total of three: two kolorized and one 8 1/2" x 6 1/4 pencil sketch). I keep wondering how the pencil sketch would look kolorized...
