The process of creating a Garbage Pail Kids card had many steps. First the artist would come up with a concept or use somebody else’s concept and start sketching. They would create pencil sketches and color rough art of the characters. At some point during the process, the people at Topps would approve the character and the artist would create a final painting. The final painting would be used to create the card image.
Below you can see the progression from GPK Pencil Sketch to Color Rough to Final Art
