Liberty Meadows + Uniques + Rainbow in the Dark by AdamWithers Liberty Meadows + Uniques + Rainbow in the Dark by AdamWithers
This is a special piece commissioned for the official Baltimore Comic-Con 2012 Artbook. The book was dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Liberty Meadows comic strip, and featured independent comic creators doing artwork featuring the characters of Liberty Meadows interacting with characters from their own books.

And so :iconcomfortlove: and I set out to find a way to mash-up our casts. I wanted to focus on one of our books, Uniques or Rainbow in the Dark; it was Comfort who convinced me it would be better to mix up all three. Why not? So, using the sort of cute, harmless cheesecake of the Liberty Meadows universe (three pretty girls, clueless to their effects on guys, being humorously ogled by three *ahem* pigs), she and I cranked this out for the tight deadline. I'm immensely pleased with it. :nod:

The Cast! Clockwise from the wiener dog: Oscar the Dog, Truman the Duck, Kid Quick, Brandy, Donna, Singe, Dean, and Raina.

Is is our typical style, I drew the characters, Comfort drew the backgrounds-- then she colored the characters and set up the lighting while I colored the backgrounds and added textures.

They're pretty great. If you were a fan of the strip, they're definitely worth having. :)

Thanks. We tried to put our best in this, knowing that it would be part of a tribute to Frank Cho. Considering we had very little time to get it done, I was really pleased with the result. :)

This is a testament to true talent then. If you can get this done under a strict time limit and still have it come out with this much detail then you have good quick hand work which I'm sure other artists wish they had!

It helped that I know the characters as well as I do, and have so much experience drawing them. Brandy and Truman were the hardest, everything else came together pretty breezily.

Oh, Dean, you're the pig with a plan. Liberty Meadows is still one of my all-time favourite strips, right up there with Calvin and Hobbes. Great concept and excellent (as always) execution.

Thanks. I knew even from the earliest stages of concept that Dean would be a major player in the pin-up we were gonna do. Something about that ridiculous pig... Always did love that guy. :)

Thanks. Tried a number of new things that are going to be staples of my natural environment art from now on.
