Won this recently. A Dave Stevens prelim, the fact it was framed was a bonus!

@Doc Joe Thanks for sharing! And...ah, so you're the one who took down the Barreto cover. I was so surprised it wasn't moving at the asking price--great cover, even better deal.

Looks terrific, but need to see the frame more.  This is the section for framed art after all. If you got time, lets see a wider shot.

I kinda dig that you've got the prelim on the back.
I used to put a copy of the comic book on a heavy sleeve on the back of my pages way back when. Just in case anyone was interested. Handy. Totally forgot about that until seeing this. :)

Zach did a very detailed pencil first, and then scanned it and blew it up on blue line to be inked. I still haven't worked out what is the "final" piece and what is the prelim; some people would absolutely prefer the pencils (even with Zach's large coffee stain spreading across the middle of the paper) over the inked blueline. In this case, the pencils are so tight, so the goal here was to keep both available so I can just take it off the wall and show people the process work without having an enormous frame with two pieces on the wall. But definitely they needed to stay together in some way. 

The framer and I opted to float the inked piece, mostly because the inking went all the way to the edge and we both liked to show a little bit of the "sloppy" that makes it the original.

From the Dark Horse Comics run of Star Wars, a tremendous acrylic painting by Hugh Fleming. Went with the metallic frame so the blaster fire would look like it was coming off the image into the room. A little extra continuation added a great touch. Had to wait a couple years before Lucasfilm passed on buying the piece and Hugh was able to satisfy Australian tax rules (no idea what that was about, but best not to argue with the artist!).

I wish Marvel would pick Hugh up again to do covers for their Star Wars. His Dark Horse covers were stunning.
