Entry 63: When there's touble you call DW
I worked pretty closely from Doug Wheatley's layout on this. Sometimes when you're working over another artists layouts you end up wanting to change a lot, but when I saw Doug's sketch for this cover I wanted to retain as much of it as I could. He's a really great artist and I encourage you to check out his work in Star Wars: Dark Times. Also, check out his blog here.
The title of this entry is from the theme song to the Disney cartoon DarkWing Duck. The line has staid with me all these year. You know, because my initials are DW... I wonder if Doug has had the same experience...
Anyway, here's Doug's sketch that I turned into the piece you see above.
