Started Jr. Pac-man sideart tracing

I used a good portion of my Saturday to work on the tracing, and got most of it done. I am so pumped. Richard has been supportive, telling me his is willing to take more photos as needed if I need detail shots. That is exactly what I needed, I needed some photos of the kite and of Jr. Pac’s shoes, so I shot him an email to see if he would have time.

Again, Richard came through and sent me two photos right away of what I needed. He is great, now I have to figure out how to scale those pieces and make them mesh with my pretty much finished version of the artwork.

Plus, even though I have mentioned that I am not a purist, I do want the artwork I produce to be remotely close, especially since Richard wants a copy of it and I know that he has a ton of respect for the games. I have found a set of the kickplate art for Jr. Pac-man on localarcade, so I am thinking that since I would be reproducing that as well, I will just take the colors from that in Illustrator so they match. Maybe I am lucky in that whoever did that set reproduced it and the colors are true.

The other option is to ask Richard if he could borrow someone’s Pantone chips and figure out the colors with me. That would be as exact as you can get. We’ll have to see if he is open to that when I am completely done.
