The DVD starts with the interviewer at the front of George's home. George is filmed in his studio as he discusses pieces of art he has hanging on his wall. (Some original and some just prints) Really corny music is playing in the background.
They eventually get to his drawing table where George is creating a Witchblade double cover which will contain the various versions of this character. He is filmed drawing only 2 of the many versions of the character. (about 10% of the cover)
It is interesting seeing the process. He starts with blue pencil outline and continues on with drawing in pencil. He uses reference books for the different versions of the character as well as using references for guns etc.
Interjected between this are interviews with some writers and artists about the influence George has had on the comic industry. (Mark Waid, Phil jimenez etc)
In the extras there are some pics of unpublished Perez art as well as a recent example from JLA/Avengers from pencil to inks.
A good DVD but could have been better. There should have been more of George drawing AND inking. If the creators were concerned about the length of the DVD, they could have filmed George drawing the entire piece and sped the film up. (IMO)
