To say that taking on Rick Veitch was a huge challenge is like saying It's easy to play a Beatles cover song in you band. It's easy to learn all the chords but, you have to get the feeling right or it just sounds horrible. Sample thing here. I had to get the feeling of the page right. It's not enough just to clean up th lines.
That being said, I think my largest hurdle to overcome was my tendancy to be overcontrolled with my lines and stiffening up the image. I feel pretty good aboutthe page and will probably try some more of this like in the future. It was to push me beyond my comfort zone.
