Day Olds - July 20th, 2007

Detective 27

Now this was hard. A really good challenge. I adore the Batman. A real favorite of mine. I especially liked the DC comic book series called Elseworlds which has a Victorian era Batman as one of its first issues. Loved it. Need to read more.

It's sometimes hard to match the plastic I have to the colours I see on something when trying to reproduce it. Shading is especially difficult but not impossible. Here too, the lettering was important and the foamie came through for me again. I eliminated some of the smaller type... way too much and tried to keep the over all feeling of the cover. I think it worked and since I've dug these two samples up, I'd like to try more reproductions.
