Do­herty has worked for 2000 AD – he’s en­hanced Judge Dredd on many an oc­ca­sion, in­clud­ing in the clas­sic “Bury My Knee At Wounded Heart”. More re­cently he’s been work­ing with Mark Mil­lar and Frank Quitely on Jupiter’s Legacy, and with Mil­lar and Dun­can Fe­gredo on MPH. Peter Do­herty says: “The ex­plo­sion is the bright­est el­e­ment in the pic­ture, so I de­cided to make that the warm­est part and, for con­trast, to make the fore­ground fig­ure much cooler. To soften the con­trast, I played around with a few high­lights on the fig­ure where the light’s catch­ing him, and some colours over the top of the linework to in­te­grate the fore­ground and back­ground while still keep­ing them dis­tinct. There’s not much ren­der­ing to do as Mike’s draw­ing al­ready has a great sense of vol­ume; the trick is not to flat­ten that with the colour. I think that’s what I achieved any­how!”
