Hi Everybody,
I have some George Pérez commissions, I'd like to share with you all. 
But I can't seem to post the first image I've chosen. A JLA/ Avengers (2003/4) themed commission.
I'm new to the idea of sharing art - see my next post, where I successfully post the first image - and don't yet have a scanner.
I've taken photos of the art, with my iPhone, and converted them to .JPEG files, with my 2021 MacBook Air, using Preview.
(macOS Big Sur. Version 11.6) Yet when I've tried to upload the first resulting image, I received an error message? Can someone offer me help?

The error message in question...
"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator." 

P.S. Feel free to delete this, if need be, I don't know how else to reach out for help, with posting images, to members/ mods.

Mike, try to resize your image, so it's not more than 600 pixels wide. If you try to post from mobile, and still have problem, then try in chrome to click the 3 dots and select the "For Pc" option

Mike, it sounds like you also might want to make sure you're using the upload button which is the button furthest to the right, with a faded out image of a tree and a blue arrow pointing up.

Your error message sounds like you may be using the LINK button which won't work.

Thanks, all of you, for your help with my posting problems.
I appreciate the suggestions.
Turns out the issue was with the file format of my iPhone.
I've adjusted those settings now. Problem solved.

It's taken longer than I wanted, as I was back at "my" hospital again, today, exploring the cause of a serious e-scooter accident I had, at the end of 2021.
I'm making a great recovery, thankfully, and the aftermath is related to my posting these wonderful George Pérez commissions. More to follow on that. 

Here is a commission from 2016. I wanted to request a single image, from George, that could only come from the JLA/ Avengers crossover. (2003/4). You can see I went with a recreation of the cover to issue #4. Where Superman is holding those iconic Marvel weapons.   I'm so happy to share the art with you all. George, of course, was his usual kind and enthusiastic self, during the process. A pleasure to correspond with. He went above and beyond, with the art, as you can see. (For example: the objects at Superman's feet! I was so chuffed to see, and identify, those items.)

Next up : This is my favourite set of commissions, from George Pérez.
As I love The Fantastic Four and George's work on the series.
I delightedly asked George, for an FF set. Then when he showed me the finished pieces, I was even happier than expected, when I saw he had used this "4" motif!  Creatively & thematically connecting all
of the images. I haven't stopped smiling over these pictures of Reed, Sue, Ben and Johnny since 2018. (When George drew them for me.) Pencil, Ink and pencil tones.

Mike, these FF commissions are sweet. Love the distinctive
expressions on each face, and each one on-model.
Beautiful.

Hello all,

In 1982, whilst I was staying at a  local hospital ward for a "problem" caused by my internal bleeding disorder, Haemophilia, I discovered a black and white reprint of a "New Teen Titans" comic in the "activity room". It was then I discovered George' Pérez's amazing artwork!
I was 11. :) 

Later, n 1986, a dear friend introduced me to this book (see below), and I discovered the three unpublished pages, from the cancelled 1983 JLA/ Avengers comic. Among other artistic gems.The JLA/ A pencils blew my youthful mind  I've been fascinated, ever since, with the unfinished crossover. And I soon after grabbed myself a copy of FoGP from my LCS, as we say these days.
Along with "The Art of John Byrne" which was also on the shelf!
How lucky was I, at 15? I was in comic book heaven that week. 

Even now, I love looking at the cover George created for this book, with all those Marvel and DC heroes, amongst others. And the art within, of course.


Which led to this commission.
I said to myself, I'd love to see the "baddies" from JLA/ Avengers (1983) 
battling. Kang vs The Lord of Time.
George was charming as ever, and happy to take my commission, and soon after he produced these two lovely pieces. 
Pencil, Ink, pencil tones. (2019)

Mike--Nice pieces Mike. George has always been fun to deal with regarding commission. I was able to get a commission with him through Clan McDonald, unfortunately it was to be his last commission list, due to his health prognosis. This is from last October.

Thanks for the kind words, Brian!
And thank-you for posting your lovely Pérez Wonder Woman commission, from October. I'm so happy to see your piece. 

I have some more art to post this week myself - but my right arm is in a sling for a few days, so it will have to wait.
