"Queen & Country: Operation Morningstar" Revisited

(you definitely need to click on image and enlarge it!)
I was really glad to get the chance to do this illustration. I've had some variation of this image in my head for years (ever since my 3-issue run on Queen & Country) so, when someone asked me to do an illustration inside their hardback edition of the aforementioned story arc I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I was doubly nervous about this commission as it was in someone's personal copy of the book and I was attempting to do a little watercolor for the first time in a commission. No room for mistakes! All said I think it turned out all right!
Note: Do not adjust your monitors--the paper inside the hard back has a marbled effect printed on it.

Brian: I've mentioned this before, but I wanted to say again how much I am enjoying The Sixth Gun. It's a great comic, and it just keeps on being great. Your work therein is absolutely wonderful.
