April 11, 2007
Worked last night until about 7:30 on Salt War images. Here's the rooftop shooter which was about half done:

I wanted to retain that damaged, faded photo look, but I also wanted to convey the Ranger Compound off in the distance (150 yards away) and the shooters there on the roof. Nice gunpowder effects as the insurgents laid down a withering fire and drove the Rangers off the roof of the compound (the shooter in the foreground is on the roof of the post office). One Ranger chopped off two fingers trying to cut a hole in the roof to escape.

I also finished the cover piece for Paul Cool's book jacket and we are using it as a full page in the magazine. I'll post that image tomorrow. I'm really in the zone and it all feels good.
