Found an interesting bit of Valiant Comics character development in the form of some early designs for the future Eternal Warrior - Gilad of the year 4001 AD. This Gilad appeared alongside his present day counterpart in the UNITYcrossover.
The design sheet looks to be a fax copy and required a lot of photoshop work to get detail to come through. You can see that on the top someone has hand written “4001 Eternal Warrior”. I have no idea who the artist is and can’t place the style. Maybe Don Perlin? Could also be John Dixon who illustrated Eternal Warrior #2 in which this Gilad first appeared. Already present is a future variation of the spiked glove and left arm design. You can also see that Gilad is looking much older here - something that didn’t make it to the printed version.
