This was a tough cover to create, even though it may look fairly basic. The splash page that I used as the basis features a raining scene, which didn't really work with the final image that I was going for. So, in addition to losing the extraneous characters that I did not want, I also had to "erase" all the raindrops on Hawkman and the dock by using the clone stamp tool. It was kind of painstaking, but worth it to be able to use one of my favorite Winged Warrior pictures ever - Jim Aparo drew an amazing Hawkman and I wish he had gotten the opportunity more often.
