Headmasters comic recolor

Postby xxaMaxx » Wed Oct 24, 2012 10:29 pm

It's been a long time since I've posted anything here. Lately, though, I've been tinkering around with Photoshop/Gimp trying to successfully recolor comics from the old Marvel run. I wanted to share my results so far to see what people think.

Here's the original version of Headmsters #4

And my recolor

It certainly doesn't look like a modern coloring job, but I think I've successfully color corrected while keeping the feel of the time period. Anyway, before I invest too much more time, I wanted to see what others thought about it. Good, bad, ugly?

Thanks!

I think it looks fantastic and would totally buy digital copies of the entire original run like that.

That looks great. It's a shame they had so many coloring errors in the original comics, and a real shame they haven't been able to get it 100% right in any of the reissues.

Great job! It'd be nice to have more color/error corrections made. Like using Cerebros' head when it should be Fort Max, etc.
