IF....

One of this days I will get tyred of spending 12 hours a day seating down drawing ( I'm already tyred, been honest). If this day come I will start to take pictures. I will be able to transmit ideas, feelings or whatever  with a single picture and it will take me few seconds not few hours.

Missing page sketch

One of the thinks that I started to do with this Missing and I have never done it before is to do a proper sketch of the page. I have already work in the sketches of he first 20 pages.

I had decided to do it in this way cos , well, I had made a nice fuck up with the first panel of the first page (I will post it latter on) and I didn't want this to happen again.

I use to work with thumbnails and after to go streigth to the page. Is not a good system. Most of the times I'm changing the page meanwhile I'm working on it. Shouldn't but I love the freedom and the chaos on it.

For example, my loved HITE. I'm writing the scrip meanwhile I'm drawing the pages. Don't get me wrong. I know what is going to happen( everything is in my head) but I just don't know how.




Missing , new project with Royal McGraw

Last week I had started to work in  a new project together with Royal McGraw. Still in the beginning but I got the feeling that this will be the project that will help me out to take out bad habits and to start to work like a professional ( even if I don't really know if I want to work like a professional)




HIte page. Color

Finished the B/W of the second issue of Hole in the Earth, I just start to play the colours. This page is almost finished. I think I found a comfort zone with the colours. I like the results and is quiet fast to do ( I'm really happy of how fast it is)

Color Sample

Is Been long time that I didnt have the chance to do something in color. Been working for too long in the Hite  second issue (pencil+ inks) that I had almost forgot how good it feels when you are doing some color stuff.

Read STINKY by Fabian Rangel JR+ Me, Free!!!




Challenger Comics is proud to present a horror double bill from writer Fabian Rangel Jr. This 22-page one-shot, presented in glorious flip-book style, features two original and terrifying tales in the style of Tales From The Crypt.
When The Evil Came brings writer Fabian Rangel Jr. together with Cody Schib (artist) and Adam Metcalfe (colorist):
A woman named Abigail recounts the story of her childhood, of her father and mother’s divorce, and of the the evil that came to their house.
Fabian then teams up with artist Valentin Ramon Menendez for Stinky:
It’s a normal school day for the kid they call Stinky. He’s tormented on the bus, then in the hallways at school, and finally in a restroom. His tormentors are busted and sent to detention. Afterwords they decide to pay Stinky a visit and extract some revenge. But once there they find more than they bargained for.

Last week end I had meet with Steve Waker from Marvel in the Comic Con in Leeds. It wasnt a surprise that he didnt quiet like the Daredevil pages  (that you can check in the Marvel Samples section of this blog) that I brought this year as a samples. What was a surprise was that he really like the pages of Hole in the Earth that I got in my portfolio and even ask me to send him over the PDF version.

Ryan Ferrier, with who I had collaborate in a pitch that still going behind the publishers in a dog-bone way,  had lunch Challenger comics , his self-publish imprint.  Take a look on the site, you will find some nice free comics to read online and the store were to buy the superb Tiger Lawyer  or the fantastic Orc Girl.

The 7 diferences

Today I been working in this years Marvel samples . I honestly I don't know why I still smashing my head with the Marvel wall. But looks like I can't avoid it.

The first panel(1) belongs to the Marvel samples that I been working on today . I had done the second one (2)  a couple of months ago ( you can find the page somewere in this blog). Looks like for me , a kick in the face can happen only in one and in the same way...

This year Marvel samples


Fail test

I done this page for a test, a short 8 pages story, that didn't work out. Still, I think the page look pretty cool. I really like the way the colors looks. Hope I had learned something for my next color page.

The Flame 1

I been waiting looooooooong time to do this page. Still I need to check out the misspelling and mistakes, Im aware that should be plenty of them.

The page is a bit mess up. Hope I had learned something for the next one.


Character design for Fabian Rangel

This is one of this pieces that makes your day when you finish it and take a look at it. This is a character design for Fragments a miniseries (or graphic novel) that hopefully I will do together with Fabian Rangel Jr.


D4ve Page 1

This is the first page of D4ve with Ryan Ferrier. I like the page but still, is something missing. I want to change some minor details and to fix some of the lines. Sometimes I got the feeling that my line doesnt have enough volume.


Speed test

Few days ago I draw this page as a test. I wanted to see how fast I could be making a finish page with a   sketchy style.. This is not much of a complicate page, only 4 panels, but still, is a page . It didnt toke much to do something like this. With this style I can do 2 pages a day and still have time to have dinner and watch a long movie.

Stinky by Fabian Range Jr

This is the first page for the short story Stinky with scrip of Fabian  Rangel Jr. I was pretty scared of this pages cos I needed to draw child's (12 years old) , think that I hate . I dont know why for me is been always more complicate to draw than grow ups.

The Flame

Meanwhile I'm finishing the short story with Fabian Rangel Jr, and meanwhile I keep going with the delayed HITE project I will start another short story( only 4 pages) with a script of my own for a Spanish project orchestrated by Mariano de la Torre. It will be a compendium of short story's made by different artist. This will be fun cos The Flame will be sharing space with some of my Spanish favourite artist.. Here some characters for this short story.
