While I have been working on the plots for my next assignment, FANTASTIC FOUR:
THE END, I decided to make a few experiments with 'digital art'.

I had been familiarising myself with aspects of computer colouring for some time
but using photographic sources was a new experience.  
I didn't have a plan for any finished images in mind when I started. I simply used
photographs that were at hand to test the parameters of the program-- and the
limits of my very limited skills.

I must also acknowledge the huge debt I owe to an old friend and fine artist Allan
Bednar, who has helped me to get to grips with some of the basics.

Another oddity since I rarely accept
non-storytelling commissions... But I had just
started plotting FF-THE END when Marvel asked
me to help out on this XBOX magazine cover.
