HONG KONG PHOOEY VS THE KARATE KID by JayFosgitt HONG KONG PHOOEY VS THE KARATE KID by JayFosgitt
A recent commission for :icondoughnut42: who requested I draw 70's DC Comics' superhero Karate Kid embattled with 70's Hanna Barbera cartoon character Hong Kong Phooey. I opted to avoid a typical fight scene, and instead had the Kid get unintentionally brained as Phooey made his standard exit from the file cabinet. Comedy gold, I tells ya! I went with flat colors in the foreground, along with an all-blue background, a blue color hold on the bg lines, and a dusty, smudged filter to make this look as much like an animation cel and background from the 70's as possible.

Classic! I like the smudged filter effect! You just gave me a new idea to add depth to my own cartoons!

Ingeniously hilarious, and the faux cel techniques are splendid.
Though, I must ask: where's Spot? Hong Kong Phooey can't escape the top drawer until Spot performs some Percussive Maintenance on it.
Oh, and precise palette choices, too. Good eye, Chief. :star::thumbsup::star:

I'd have added spot, but he wasn't part of the commission request!

Fantastic! Great job on the cel and 70's bg technique.

Have you heard the Hong Kong Phooey theme performed by Sublime? On my regular music rotation!

I've vaguely heard of this particular Karate Kid--I grew up with Daniel Russo in the theaters in the 1980's--but I KNOW I love Hong Kong Phooey. I'm surprised many more people were not klonked in the head like that by the drawer, though I remember the drawer getting stuck a few times. Scatman Crothers was awesome as HKP, and I loved Rosemary the telephone operator. Nice work with the 70's crossover flashback.

My money's on Hong Kong Phooey any day of the week. The Kid's a total git, and Phooey is awesome.
