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.

Yes, those paints make a great look on the outfits!

Looks like some nice texture effects from the paint and watercolor paper 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).
