Quote from: DeCarlo Rules on August 22, 2016, 04:50:42 AMI 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.
