11" x 17" @ 450 DPI. Art by Jim Lee, Scott Williams and Alex Sinclair. This is the cover to the WildStorm Fine Arts Spotlight on WildCats (say that ten times!). It's also an image that was drawn, inked and colored about 15 years ago. A few months back, WildStorm head honcho Hank Kanalz asked me if I would be interested in re-coloring some old Wildcats art that they could not find files of. Most of the pieces they sent were done before I started there (yes, THAT long ago). I said "hell-yeah!" This is probably my favorite from the whole stack since I was told I didn't have to match the previous version.

Ah yes, back during the days when MTV actually played music videos and people wore holes in their jeans on purpose.

Hahahaha true!
A little question if I may, Alex... What's called some effect I see you have used on some of the Blackest Night pages for the ring glows and the BL Power Battery? I mean is something that looks like some sort of fractal figure or something like that layered on top of the usual diffused glows, a lot of colorist seem to use those these days for sfx and I can't seem to find the name for it.
I'm pretty sure it isn't a regular photoshop filter.
Thanks for the help in advance!

They're called KPT filters and you buy them to add to PS. I use 2 of them on this page and messed with the color and painted them here and there to get the look I was going for
