Charley Steals a Uniform by LordDominic Charley Steals a Uniform by LordDominic
I decided to draw up an idea that's been floating around in my head for a few years but I've never successfully pulled off before, some more classic cartoon humor stuff. Charley has finally managed to beat up Rufus and steal his police uniform. There's a lot of mischief that Charley can get into dressed like a cop. Lucky (or maybe unlucky for Rufus) they are both the same size so the uniform fits Charley just as well as it fits Rufus. Rufus has a black eye (I tried, I might experiment a bit more) and is cuffed to that pipe.
Charley will probably leave the light on in this closet for Rufus. Probably. Maybe. Probably not.

Edited 2/13/2014: Fixed a couple things that were really bugging me about the original and made a few minor additions.
-Forgot the star on the badge, added.
-Gave Charley only one stripe on the back of his head instead of two, corrected.
-Adjusted the placement of Charley's nose.
-Darkened Rufus' black eye. I was unhappy with how it looked originally.
-Added speech bubble with muffled speech for Rufus (he wouldn't take being bound and gagged quietly!) and added a line to indicate he's puffing his cheeks up trying to speak.
-Adjusted the shading on a couple minor things.
-Added noise to the floor to give it some sort of texture.
-Brightened the room overall-if the light in the utility closet is on, it should be a bit brighter in there than it was before.
-Laughed at the completed scene for a bit longer than I should have.

Also, check out this amazing comic that 61021376 did based on this picture!

I absolutely love this, it's great to see other peoples' take on my characters, and this one really gets their personalities right while providing a bit of a story leading up to what's happening in my picture.

Hey, thanks!
If you like the comic, be sure to let the artist that drew it know, I'm sure he'd be glad to hear you enjoyed it!

I love the contrast with the silly hearts and the very angry expression on Rufus's face! And that mocking look, of course. Looks like the end of a tom and jerry-like chase...

Aww, thanks! I think there's just something really funny about giving characters fun underwear patterns like that for some reason, it just has that classic cartoon charm. I'm quite a fan of Tom and Jerry and Looney Tunes, so I guess that probably explains it.

That's right! You know, this's inspiring in the cartoony way... would you allow me to draw a comic about that chase and fight?

Oh wow, I'd be honored if you drew them!
If you'd like, I can link a couple of pictures that show Charley's normal outfit before he steals the police uniform.

Okay, here's a picture of Charley's normal outfit:

Just brown pants, white shirt and a bandanna, nothing too special.
And on the off chance you need to know what sort of shorts Charley normally wears, here's a good picture:
