Color Duel by Laemeur Color Duel by Laemeur
I did two versions of the colors on this (as you can see) -- a lousy digital painting-type thing, and a vintage comic book look (a technique which I am honing to perfection, I must say). Personally, I think the painted one looks like crap, but I figured I'd post both and let you fine folks weigh-in on it.

I always enjoy your oldschool style, and just as you said it brings back some of the fond memories reading comics as a little kid. May I ask how you get this effect? Digitally or traditionally?

Digitally, by reproducing the traditional process.

Vintage FTW! It just seems more appropriate

Yeah, you know, the digital painting one's not bad, but the vintage comic look is absolutely stunning. I agree with *shaloop that it instantly takes me back to reading those kinds of classic comix with their misregistration and distinctive palette look. It's really fantastic. I love the paper colour, too—a lovely touch.

that's a tough one! i don't think the painterly one looks like crap at all - i like how everything pops there, it has depth. yet, i love the graphic look of the one on the right as well.

i didn't really pick one did i....

No, but I recognize your noncommittal posture as one of refinement and diplomacy, and have decided I shan't throw mudballs at you for it.

That definitely looks like a legit old-school comic! I like the richness of the colors in the digital one, but I think all the stars make it a bit too busy. The second one has that nice chunk of yellow nebula or whatever to break up the space a bit, and I think the digital one would benefit from something similar. :)

You're right. The nebula-thing is compositionally important, and I sorta ruint it in the full-color attempt.
