(above) pencil art
Sal Velluto was hired to pencil two pin-ups with the X-men's Imperial
Guard in the mid-'90s but for whatever reason Marvel never bothered to
publish them.  In August '02  I inked the image.  The Gladiator/ Oracle/
Earthquake piece (left) was done almost fully in marker with minor details
done with a brush. The Imperial Guard team shot (top of page) was done
mostly in marker with just a little bit of flashlines done with a croquill Hunt
102 and then for special FX: chinamarker (crayon), white spatter for the
stars and a few razor-scratched lines.
UPDATE- 1/27/04:  Aardvark Publishing will include both of these images above
in their THE UNCANNY DAVE COCKRUM TRIBUTE BOOK (since he co-
created the characters) since Sal & I offered it to them to help out with his
medical costs.  That's now 4 out of the 7  'unpublished' art entries in this gallery
to this date that have been published in a book or fanzine after the fact:-)
