Need some input. The side art of CK originally is done with stencils (I suppose) and it has it's flaws, see for instance the attached picture where the right part of the middle grider is not in line (I added a straight line to Etičnne's scanned image to show what I mean). I 'included' this flaw, and others, in my vector file (again, see attached picture). Should I leave it that way, or should I straighten it out?

Keep the flaws !

Makes a repro look more original. It's like with the Berzerk side-art, they clearly "randomly" positioned the masks during painting, resulting in every Berzerk side art being a little bit different Smiley

I finalized it today, changed the vector file and all of its layers to CYMK color codesand adjusted the colors to match the original ones as close as possible. I gave the final draft file to The Master and if he gives his OK (after all, he started the project many, many moons ago), then the artwork will be send to the printer.

No, only one.

There is a second yellow (in the barrels and in the middle of the last stage (under the stars)
the normal yellow is little more green. (you can see them flow together in the  middle of the last stage )

Are you sure? I attached a picture of the area that you mean, I think. The 'greenish' yellow, is yellow paint, but put on very light so the brown background shines through, making it a bit 'greenish'.

The other yellow in the image is also yellow, but has a pink background, making it a bit off. The same effect happens at the barrels and the upper part of ckong's mouth,

Anyway, both colors are hard to pick from an image, so I leave it at one yellow color. I'm pretty sure that the workers at the Zaccaria plant did also only use one yellow color

Maybe you are right, it's just an effect of two colors mixed up.

I can scan the colorcode if you like?

Although I like the vectorized side art so far, I still think that the colors and color edges are too 'clean'. So I'm playing with transparancy and color overflow a bit in AI, to get a more authentic look. So far I added 90% transparancy to the yellow vertical lines beneath Pauline and 95% to her hair color. And 94% to the background color of the barrels. It looks already better IMO.
