Wanted to color another piece by :iconkidnotorious:

I don't know if a vintage comic would have such vibrant, glowing colors on Hellboy's guantlet, but that said, you hit a home run on this. All the rest of the colors have that vintage feel to them...and this so looks like a real comic. The weathering. The "graffiti." Man...this has such a delicious flavor to it. Stellar work!
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much! And you're right, that glow is out of place, but i thought it looked cool so I left it in:)

There's a lot to be said about leaving it the way you like! That's one of the main perks of being the actual artist! I see you have a "sub-gallery" of vintage covers. They absolutley rock!

great use of typography. i really like the font you used for "more" and "featuring". can you tell me the name of this font plz?
MattKaufenberg's avatar
Hmm off the top of my head i'm not sure and the file is on a different computer. I'd check one of the free font sites and search for script fonts...i'm sure that's where i got it. If i get a chance to locate the original file i'll let you know!

OK, these are just killin' me (but in a good way, LOL) there just way too cool. but I have to ask, do you print the picture and make it "vintage" or is it made to look "vintage" on the computer? As a comic collector, this raises some interesting topics of conversation...

Thanks so much!

I take old worn covers from my personal collection, scan them into photoshop and make them fit the piece i'm working on.

This is really nice. I am going to have to commission you to do a gun ghoul cover like this one. Some really cool colors and idea.
