while searching on heritage auctions i found this image of a popeye cel. seems to be traced from insect to injury. the colors and tracing quality give off the vibe that this may have been from a bootleg radio & tv packages redraw of the cartoon. anybody ever see this before?

Not 100% sure, but I suspect this might actually be an official Popeye promotional cel, redrawn from the original motive in Insect to Injury. Why they would redraw it I don't know, but it might have been easier for whatever reason than to shoot a still of the original cel from the film. I've seen some similar examples of older Tom and Jerry promotional art which sometimes appear in newspaper articles, like these images from a recent Daily Mail article. I'm certain these are official promo stills, and they both seem to be based directly off frames or motives from the original cartoons; but at the same time, they're clearly redrawn.

Promo cel wouldn't have A13 in the corner

Cel marking and code layout does not match the style of those used at the South Korean studios for Radio and Television Packagers.

Code layouts, compared to the cel mentioned in the topic, were marked on the top for any done in said studio. The cel mentioned in the topic has it's code layout at the bottom right.

My first guess after the original post was also that it was some type of promo cel.

The auction cel has also been slightly mispainted...they've filled in the space between the pipe and popeye's hand with the flesh color.
