Fanart Post: Top Gear 14x02 Comic Strip  
Title: 14x02 Comic Strip
Rating: G
Characters/Pairing: James, Jeremy, Richard / None(Gen)
Warnings: None
A/N: This is all evilmaniclaugh's fault for not only introducing me to Top Gear, but also encouraging me to post this even though I had my doubts.

After watching Top Gear 14x02, in which Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond build their own electric car, I doodled a rough version of this comic on a scrap piece of paper. After many failed attempts in photoshop later, this was born. (Note that you may not find it all that funny if you don't watch Top Gear, sorry.)

Feedback is most appreciated!

Oh this is good. No idea where to post it to either. And love the moustache you've added to Jeremy. I can vaguely remember that episode with that shiny looking box car (or have I gotten that confused?).

No, you got that right, they made a shiny electric car named 'Geoff' in that episode. :D

Thanks! glad you like it!

awwe thank-you! :)

I wasn't sure if I could post it to topgearslash, what with the comic not being slashy.

I sometimes wonder, at night, if Geoff is still around. :D

Heeee! That's excellent - a Top Gear Comic would be WIN
little_dumpling: Top Gear - The Hammond Calendarlittle_dumpling on January 5th, 2010 02:06 am (UTC)
Haha, and a lot of work! But I'd be willing to do it if I had enough ideas. :D

Any suggestions on future comics?

Here via evilmaniclaugh - I don't watch the show much, but I think you got the guys just right!

I also like the colouring you've used - very vibrant.

Thanks so much bookaddict! I appreciate the comment!

Vibrant is a much kinder word that I was expecting. I was going for retro-comic, and ended up with blinding. :)

p.s. was wondering if I could friend you?

I'm glad you liked it, especially since I was quite nervous about posting it! :) Thanks for the comment!

Another TGS-er coming in via evilmaniclaugh :)

Fantastic stuff - makes me think this is what Top Gear would look like if it was created by Roy Lichtenstein!
little_dumpling: Top Gear - The Hammond Calendarlittle_dumpling on January 6th, 2010 11:55 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much! I think this comic might be slightly more epileptic than Lichtenstein, but I am completely flattered that you would think so! :)

How amazing Top Gear would be though if Roy Lichtenstein illustrated it! xD

Thanks for taking the time to comment!

Oh, I love this! Richard's "We're doomed" is particularly awesome :-)
little_dumpling: Top Gear - James May: Captain Mathslittle_dumpling on January 7th, 2010 12:00 am (UTC)
I enjoy that one too! (secret: it was the first panel I made for this comic! :D)

Thanks for the comment!
