Fiddleworth's Toffee Sensation by tymime Fiddleworth's Toffee Sensation by tymime
Gosh! I ought to get some!

Another contest entry for generator website Seventh Sanctum, this time it's all about CANDY: seventhsanctum.com/contests.ph…
The results I picked, as you may well imagine, were:
Jellied Red Hot Toffee
Plum Whipped Toffee

As with the B-movie contest, this gave us a chance to flex our pop-culture muscles. The idea was to reproduce a magazine ad from the '30s-'40s. I took the proportions from a vintage National Geographic and the texture from a '50s Supermouse comic book I had bought recently.
I owe a great deal of influence to the wonderful book Meet Mr. Product by Warren Dotz, featuring vintage advertising art from across the decades.

The final product is a collaboration (Fatalhilarity providing the candy itself and the Crayola color), but the main concept and design are mine.

My ability to do anything involving retro stuff is kinda sad. I only know pieces from 69-70's to 80's and 90's, so my retro knowledge kinda sucks. Anyways, this seems really convincing to me and I would see this in a classic magazine. Kudos to you, I hope you win. :)

You're more retro than most people- some can't even imagine anything older than when they were kids.

I really envy your texturing abilities...Also, I love your advertising style! It really does ring of an old-timey candy ad!

...Isn't Fallbrook, MI the same town from whence came the Deadly Groundhog?

We basically took the scan of the comic book, filled the gaps, and put it over everything else, really- with the layer set to Multiply and the opacity turned down.

Yep, it is. It's just a retro sounding town, don't you think?

...would you mind sharing? :please:

Yeah, totally! Is it real, or did you make it up? 'cause it totally sounds like an MI town name! (And I would know! :XD:)

Sharing what? The comic book? Or the texture? 'Cause I can do either...

That's good... maybe it'll fool some people, eh?

The texture, please! I've been trying SO hard to replicate my own comic book texture, but I've been failing miserably!
