Well, what do you get if you add months of internet chatter and rumour around a proposed Watchmen sequel / series of prequels to a comic nerd currently teaching himself how best to use layers in Photoshop?
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you . . .
With huge apologies to Dave Gibbons, I figured I had to use something while I was playing around with layers and Watchmen has just been everywhere on the net for months and I couldn't get this image out of my head:
There's nothing I like more than spending hours working on something in Photoshop and having it end up looking like it was done in MS Paint . . .
Still, think I've got the hang of layers now.
By the way, the text for the logo was generated using this font so it's no wonder it's the best looking thing about this. I just coloured it in.
Well how's that for timing? I originally had this little post planned for yesterday but shifted it when I read the news about Jeff Lemire moving books. Had I posted this as planned, it would have hit around the time that DC announced Before Watchmen, the much-rumoured prequels. Just my luck.
And as much as I like Adam Hughes's artwork, am I the only one thinking Dr Manhattan and Silk Spectre look as though they're being . . . intimate . . . here:
Is it just me?
