I'm planning this to be the cover for Sunnyville Stories #15. This retro style cover evoking fashions and colors of the 1970s was inspired by the 1970 pinball game Jive Time and the illustration style of Susan Jaekal.
It was tricky. I studied fashions of the 1970s for Rusty and Sam's outfits. I also studied color schemes used then; the 1970s favored drab colors as opposed to the bright psychedelics of the 1960s or the garish neon of the 1980s. There's not much detail either; I avoided shading as I wanted more of a flat feel and I think it worked here.
Thank you very much. I used diluted acrylic for the background. Sam's 1970s blouse and pants was painted with semi-thick acrylic while Rusty has both thinned out paint and thicker paint (notice his shoes there).
