Here's a panel from the final story in Your Round: Stout, by Beth Millar. She actually started working on it when i was putting the first book, Tequila, together. After a lot of discussion and re-workings she handed me some lovely pages from a story she had written herself. When my co-editor viewed them, he expressed some concerns, basically he felt the artwork didn't look quite right. ie, it sat uncomfortably in-between an 'indie' and 'mainstream' style. Viewing the artwork, i could see his point. He asked me if i could work in top of her work to strengthen it. I was relieved that Beth was kind enough to allow me to work on her art. She had done a lot of work on these pages and i didn't want to hand them back to her yet again to work on them more.
So i used some drybrush to add texture, made the lighting more dramatic, etc. Thought it'd be interesting to show a 'before and after' kind of affair. I actually enjoyed working over her work. The only other time i worked on someone elses work was when i inked a page Will Sliney pencils, which again, was fun.
He didn't like it tho.
So, here's a panel from one of Beth's pages, with my finishes below it.
