Table of  Illustrations--  Foreword


    Most of  the images listed have required little work: "The Daily War-Drum", for instance, only required rotating the comic strip & scanning the picture; "Donald Selling Newspapers" needed a simple erasing of  the background. A few of  them, however, are compositions of  my own that required a lot more work.

    The site's logo, as it first appears, is carried by Donald & Mickey; for this this picture, I had to complete a little bit of  Mickey's left foot, and a lot more of  Donald's.

    "The Treasure Chest" has been emptied of  its contents, and Uncle Scrooge has been added.

    The "Don Rosa Papers" image required that several objects be completed: all the frames, the money bag, the dollar bill, the wad of  dolar bills, the top of  the globe's "stand", a few coins, the table, and the scrapbooks (the third one was erased; the top one, which it covered slightly, had to be completed; and the bottom one had to be almost entirely drawn).

    In every case, the completion job was done with the utmost respect for the art, down to the tiniest details. In such cases as Donald in the first example, I carefully studied how Gottfredson drew it. In other cases, I ususally complete the image using elements from the image itself. The DRP is a case in point: for instance, with the exception of  a very very few pixels (the top border line), every pixel of  the scrapbooks' is by Don Rosa; bits and pieces from the top two scrapbooks were used to do the bottom one and fill the top one's covers; even the shadows on the top one's cover are made of  pixels from the scrapbooks.

    The table of  illustrations will help you find the original images and easily spot the modifications I made. I should add the purpose of  these detailed (and often unnecessary because obvious) descriptions is not to sollicit praise but to clearly point out that these images are not the original art, which was respectfully altered to illustrate this site and to make special tribute pages.
