I use Paint Shop Pro 8 (old) now Corel own it, it used to be Jasc. Using Layers is useful to place figures on top of Background Layers. Color Replacer is good. I use a Layer set to Opacity 40% or 60% with BLACK, to draw over color layers without ruining the Layer underneath, this makes green - dark-green etc. This is ideal for Shadows and creating 3D effect. Using Gradient = Fading Foreground Angle = 180 Repeats = 0 with Blue give a graded color sky with a Grey Layer under gives dark - rainy feeling, with a
White Layer under gives light, Daytime feeling. Thanks for the Jack Kirby stuff have you ever done Jim Steranko SHIELD covers?
