Nicktoons Comic: Magic Duel by Coonfoot Nicktoons Comic: Magic Duel by Coonfoot
Shredder300 came up with the premise of this one. It's just Timmy and Tak having a duel with their magic.

I learned that this is a type of thing writers love to do: Come up with a seemingly hopeless situation for a character where there's no way out of it, but then DO come up with a way to get out of it. It's something I learned from Barnyard creator Steve Oedekerk (on the DVD commentary for the original movie, if you're wondering). I figured since Timmy was in a duel involving magic, he couldn't win because fairy magic can't be used to win a competition. This also lead to another favorite thing of writers: the mislead. Just when you think Timmy's going to read that book, he uses the book itself. It's yet another comedy element that I love.

One factor in why this took a while to get done was the fact that I toyed with doing all of the color AND effects in Illustrator this time. It turned out surprisingly well. The only Photoshop stuff here is the speech bubbles, text, and everything outside the panels. It was also my first time drawing Da Rules... Which was a pain to get right. You can tell in the last panel that I was just sick of drawing the entire thing a third time and ended up drawing only a corner. So much for thinking the design of that show is simple!

The Fairly OddParents created by Butch Hartman. Tak and the Power of Juju created by THQ and John Blackburn. Both owned by Nickelodeon.
