Mike wanted to redo the Charlie Chan redesign the title logo based on the newspaper comic strip and added Charlie Chan's head. See the miscellaneous tab for an example of the comic strip.
Nice done but the pencils being recreated from the inked version, the result looks like a cleaned up copy, except for the new logo, of course.
When Mike light boxes from pencils, it's going to be cleaned up. That's how he does it.
If I had the time. I'd light box/ trace the Fantastic 4 Annual # 2 into
pencils and have Mike Royer re ink and letter the entire book. I'd draw in
the backgrounds as close as I could in Kirby's style first and pass it onto
Mike Royer to finish up. Then we'd see Jack Kirby's work get the treatment
that it should have gotten in the inking.
When the pencils are gone they're gone. Not even Mike himself can guess what they were. Efforts should focus on restoration where pencils exist, not recreation of work that is gone forever
