This is the second of four images I drew in 1990 as covers for a zine. The zine was either never published or published without my covers. Either way, I’ve forgotten its name.In 2010 I scanned all four images for this website. I also redrew the images in my current style and skill level. Now, in 2016, I’m redrawing those images again, first as black and white pieces, then adding computer color.
I enjoy having two different color versions without me having to do extra work (other than changing modes) so I’m posting the RGB version as well. I’ll probably continue do that for a while, until I either get bored or figure out what I’m doing that’s creating the bright versions.
In 1990 I drew four images for the covers of a zine that never got published. This is one of them. In 2010 I scanned the first image and posted it online. At the time I decided that it would be fun to redraw the image in my contemporary style. When I posted the second version I (half jokingly) suggested that I should redraw the image every five years.
This one ended up with much brighter colors than I’d planned. I’ve colored all my previous illustrations in RGB mode in Photoshop. RGB is the format used for online images. This illustration was done in CMYK mode. CMYK is the format used for print. The colors didn’t look this bright when I was working on them. They’re only showing up like this now that I’ve posted the image online.
Nope. Above is an RGB version.
Apparently I have much to learn. Which is why I’m doing these things.
