Here's some photos showing the process for my Intercorstal-ised version of the iconic first page of Judge Dredd: America. They're running back-to-front, from my finished image through the various iterations ad finishing on Colin MacNeil's incredible original (the scan of which I've nicked from here:

If for some baffling reason you've not read America, you can buy the collected edition here or alternatively it's only £1.99 as part of Hachette's Judge Dredd The Mega Collection

Starting to fill in close details.

Got bored, doodled with a brush pen for a while.
