Halo Jones pic in honour of 2000ad's 35th birthday. I tried to post earlier but the colours came out a bit 'off'. I'm a huge fan of Halo Jones, going as far to considering life changing for me. I read it an an impressionable age and Moore and Gibson did such a good job of making the the characters live and breathe.

I love this.

Halo Jones is probably my favourite Alan Moore work, and of all the things he's abandoned or disowned, it's the unfinished status of this one that saddens me the most.

Another corker, Paul.
Lovin' the dry brush look you've got going.
You still using photoshop for the colours?

Kelvin - I'm with you, Halo is my probably my favourite Moore work, and there should have been a bit more.
Shane - Thank you, kindly. Yes, still p/shop colours. I've had a couple of toning experiments with the original art before scanning on some work. Still got a few kinks to iron out with that technique, but I think it might be the way to go.
