I colored in of my stress free coloring books before. I haven't done that in while. I used crayons.  Maybe I'll do it again tomorrow. I wish they made a Archie one. They would sell a lot. If I worked at Archie Comics I would suggest it.

The "coloring book variant" is the latest variant comic book cover trend. DC has already done a number of them, and Dynamite is starting to do them too. Here are a couple of Dynamite's coloring book variant covers from last month's solicitations: KISS #1 by Fernando Ruiz, and BETTY BOOP #1 by J. Bone. Of course, if you wanted to color these without altering the actual comic book, you could just print out the covers from the images, and color the copies you print. There are enough images of black and white comic book covers out there on the internet that you could print out a whole stack of drawings that you like, staple them together, and make your own coloring book.

I was just fooling around with some pencil drawings I found online. The figures of Betty and Reggie came from separate cover variants that Dan Parent drew for ARCHIE #666. I saved both of those variant cover pencil sketches, opened them both up in Paint and cropped and erased the elements (background figures) in both images that I didn't want. Then I pasted the Betty figure and the Reggie figure into the same image. I noticed in both drawings that their hands were on their hips with their elbows sticking out, and I realized that if you overlapped the images, it looked like Betty and Reggie were arm-in-arm, so I did that, and erased the overlapping lines. This just turned out to be really fortuitous, because with the two separate figures lined up correctly according to height, the way that Dan drew them in the original pencil sketches, their eyes look as if they're looking right at each other! The original idea was to tone down the blacks here so that I'd have some light gray lines and I intended to print this out and ink it myself, and white-out the stray lines I hadn't already erased after inking it. That will take a while though, so I'll just show you what I've got so far. You can see a lot of broken lines where I had to erase stuff, but it's pretty clear for me to see where the ink lines need to go, so no big deal. Below that you can see the final covers those figures of Betty and Reggie came from, as they were printed in the final cover versions inked by Rich Koslowski.

I would love to color that picture. I could probably print it from the library. I don't have a printer. I always thought Reggie looked good in yellow. His shirt would be yellow. He would have black pants.

Ooh, I like the end result!  :smitten:


@BettyReggie, this is Reggie we're talking about, he looks great in any color ;)
But yeah, a yellow shirt would be nice.

Lazy day I read in my room & changed the comics in my frames. I have 2 books to pick up from the library. I have those receipts from KFC where you buy the soda & the meal is free. I have to do the survey first & write the code on the receipt.

So today i went to the Christmas Tree Shops and Target. Didnt buy anything but my dad got me cereal. It was fun to browse and look at the products. I had a turkey and cheese with lettuce, tomato, and mayo on a roll for lunch.

In one hour I am going to the gym. I am currently watching jeopardy

Well, when you buy stuff at a fast food place, when they print the reciept, you look on the back of it and sometimes they have this URL where you go and fill out a survey online, then they give you a coupon code. I've seen these on a number of different reciepts, although the exact offer usually varies somewhat.
