Voted for the render. Not terribly enthused by either concept. The text in both just really detracts from the image.
This is an interesting competition and I like them both for evoking a sense of nostalgia for Golden Age Horror comics that were in print long before most of us were around! Went with Reggies for the Crypt-Keeper. Nice job to both competitors!
Nice pieces from both of you. I like that pell added a price/date numbering. I think both would have been awesome with a layer/filter that aged them and make them look like worn comics.
Reggie - do you hold your pencil like that?
Thanks, Diesel. I actually thought of that when I missed a spot in the coloring and it looked like cracking around the binding. Maybe next time.
I knew the rendering would work against me. But when time got tight, I decided to concentrate on finishing, which was the demon to conquer in my last two Pummel pieces. I'll focus more on the rendering in my next street fight with Deth.
Good job on the piece and the win, ReggieR3mote. I'm sure we'll meet again in the monthlies if not sooner.
