Just finished this page for the Harly Quinn " contest". Been honest, sometimes I don't know why I waste time doing this kind of thinks when I know that, well, Is not going to work out + is not exactly what I want to end up doing.

But what is done is done

Diablo Rojo ( Panel)


Colorist Gig

This is my first gig as a colorist and Im enjoing it quiet a lot. Andrew Hartmann on the art and Jimmy Furlong on the script.

I think the second panel is the funnyest panel ever . I had ask Jimmy for the script cos I really wanted to read it. Mental stuff.

This is Jimmy panel description:


4. Wide shot - Six Freddie Mercury’s run across an urban 
battlefield, tight pants, crotches exposed, swinging their 
helicopter dicks - black strips censor out their penises – In 
their midst a troop of regular sized Elvis soldiers clutch their 
ears screaming blood running through their hands and pouring out 
of their noses, mouth and eyes.






TWBD panel

Panel for Tomorrow will be different  , a short story with Jimmy Furlong.
Jimmy toke the risk to let me do the lettering. Is quiet a pain in the ass to do the lettering, let me tell you. I dont think im the man for the job.

Hope next time I will do a better job


The end is always a new begining

Done. Few days back I had finished my work on the miniseries MISSING ( I think the title had change for MISSING PERSONS) with creator Royal McGraw. Is been a long way ( but not as long as I had thought when I first read the script) and I can belive is done.

The covers for MP are the best, color wise , that I had done ever. Here you can see a sample of the cover for the first issue. I will let the pleasure to post the whole cover for Royal .

Now that the art work is done , I can't wait to see what will happen with the series.

Panel Diablo Rojo


Lurker

Few days ago I had finished the short story Lurker with Brad Edwars and Brian Level ( that will do the colors on the pages) .And look like everyone was quiet happy with how the pencils and inks looks . Down below you will see a nice example of how, most of the times, a open mind brings the best happy endings.

The first page on this post is the sketch that I had propose to Brad for one of the pages of the story. They didnt quiet like it so Brian crack down a sketch of the page as how they see it. Brian have a nice way to layout the pages ( you can see a nice example of his art on the free reading of "Bullets &teeth" on Challenger comics)

And I was so blow away with what they have done that I decided to use follow Brian sketch with my eyes close.

You tell me how the final page looks like.

Missing 3 done

This is page 19 of the 3th issue of Missing the own created mini series of Royal Mcgraw.

One of the thinks that I'm enjoying more in this work is  the colour process . One of the thinks that I had learn with this work is regarding illumination. Shouldn't say so, because is my work, but some of the pages really look brilliant. With not a heavy work in the render process  and with a simple palette pages looks good.

Diablo Rojo , Panel 1 PAge 1


This is the first panel of the first page of el Diablo Rojo. Still not finish. Im not sure how much I want to render the colors. I dont like to spend much time on rendering de colors , once the color base is done , is quiet boring. And if I think that the line on the pages is quiet thigh it may not need much work on the color.

Still, im not sure. The story of my life, huh?



I, Icarus

This 3  panels belong to I, Icarus ,  a short story together with Gleen Arseneau that will be publish soon in the on-line anthology Outre.

I have only left to do the last page, but I will need to come back to the first pages and fix some stuff in the pages. For this story I had try to break a bit  my line of work.I got the feeling that my line still to rigid I dont think is fluid enough . I had try todo this pages (the line) as fast as I could to see if in this way my work get some life.





LURKER page 5

This panel belongs to LURKER the short story that im drawing for  Brad Edwars and Brian Level ( that , by the way , is a fellow illustrator .You can read for free Playing the Game ,with script of Nicola Jajic on Challenger Comics).

I'm reeeeeeeeeeally happy with how the work is going at the moment. I was quiet scare  this short story because I'm not really good designing and after moving trough the pages monsters. My first try ever was in the short story STINKY (with Fabian Rangel Jr) . But , ate the moment doesnt look bad.

More Diablo Rojo

Talking about the devil, looks like Mark Bertolini   writer of Scum on the earth  (with Ron Cronenbohrs on th art) and  Breackneck  (you can download  the PDF version of the first issue HERE )will help out with the script +dialogues of Diablo Rojo.


Diablo rojo, first blood

This is color  test that Rob Croonenborghs done for the Diabo Rojo. I has asking to do it because I love the way that he uses the colors. He have a , lets call it freedom in the use of the colors that I really like but that , for a strange reason I can manage to do in my pages.

Unfortunaltlly this freedom of colors and his way to work didn't match with the tight line that im doing for this pages.

Hope I will find a project in the future to work with him.

Missing 3

THis one is the first panel of Missing Issue 3. Just finished today. Still waiting for the OK of Royal McGraw , writer of the book.

Can't wait to start with Issue 4.

El Diablo Rojo

Now. I think I found something that I really want to draw. In the last months I been thinking about a simple project , something funny and quick to do.  I didnt want to find a big story , only something that I fancy to work on.


I think this will be El Diablo Rojo


Missing Issue 2

I had almost the colors for Missing Issue 2. Still waiting for Royal to give me the OK to  the colors.  Im learning quiet a lot with this work. Provably the most important think that I had learn till the moment is to see trougth the eyes of the writer.

I think I had improve a lot in terms of storytelling and job planification and how to move the "camara" (the eye of the viewer) around the page.


TMWBD page 6

THis is page 6 of Tomorrow will be different  a short story that I'm drawing for the British Showcase Anthology with script of Jimmy Furlong.

Quiet happy with the work done till the moment. To work with Jimmy is really good because he give me lots of room for my creativity .

MIssing, issue 1 page 2

The work on Missing, together with Royal Mcgraw is going pretty well. Issue 1 is already done and im on half way with the second issue.

Im learning quiet a lot working with him, because he have really clear what he want and is pushing me to work harder than I usually do ( I mean, after all this years working with  sketchy thumbnails I had started to draw proper sketches for the pages and is a hugh difference)


Test

I draw this page as a test for Quincy Bonobo that didn't work out. Pity , cos the script was crazy and was quiet enjoyable.

Still I really like this page. I done it fairly quick (the whole thingy toke me less than one working day) but it have the kind of balance that I want to achieve to all my pages
