I have a preference for the original painting, Guy. I really dig the sepia feel. Did you paint that traditionally? Nice illo.Mike
Agreed, the photoshop (however sharp) can't match the look nor the glow of the sepia and b&w - I'm leaning toward the sepia, although the black & white has it's charm.
Great illustration!! Love your work in progress presentation!!
I have to agree ... I like the original painting better too.
I like the Sepia the best. It seems like it has more depth. I love your illustrations. Coming to your site is such a fun time.
Hi Guy,I agree with everyone else that the sepia illustration has the most warmth and it makes it so appealing. I have a question though....What did you ink your lines with? Traditonally or with Adobe Streamline?Peter
I agree with you. I like the sepia one too. However, I guess I didn't explain myself very well. The idea was to find a style that would work well for b&w printing. So, even though the sepia one looks best, it wouldn't print that way. Smook- I painted it with acrylic on paper.chrisg- Thanks. The one with line could have it's place. They are both quick styles which is what I'm really looking for. I think with more time I could make the PS one look more traditional but it wouldn't really save more time.Alina, Ranter- Thanks.Peter- I just used a pen and a lightbox.
It has to be the converted b&w painting for 1c printing. If you were printing in cmyk it would have to be the original sepia version. I am a big fan of inking but your rendering is too good. If it's going to be printed in a newspaper type publication...that's the only way I'd choose the inked version.
The sepia one is my favorite. Great illustration, so much fun to look at!
I really like the sepia version too. It give it kind of an Iron Giant kind of feel, like it's from an evil genius kid movie from the 50s. It's a shame that it won't be printed that way -- no way you could do a 2 color duotone?The converted to b&w one is the best alternative, I think.
great image Guy!I think I like the black and white [converted from the sepia best tho maybewith a little darker line in parts of the outline [ about the best I can offer] . great robottoo, he's got personality.
Thanks Drazen. I agree with you on the b&w. I'm working on a job that calls for a bunch of b&w illos. and I think I'm going to try out this technique. Funny thing about this robot is that I was just drawing whatever came to my mind. Now he's really growing on me.
I like the sepia one best, but they're all great!
