Heat up

This panel belongs to POH the web-comic that , one day , will see the light together with Mark Bertolini.

One of the things that i'm doing on POH ( and I shouldn't) is design the characters on the way. Problem , at the moment ,is that some of the characters look different in each panel because Im not following any order meanwhile I'm drawing, I'm jumping from page to page .I have some pages with one panel done, others two panels , so I need to go back quiet often to old panels to fix the uniforms.

Is , ate the moment, my most chaotic work.

Don't plan nothing for tomorrow. Future will come anyway

Diablo Rojo pitch pages

This are the pages for the pitch of Diablo Rojo that I had done a while ago with the help of Mark Bertolini on the words and Nik J Saw on the lettering.

We send the pitch just to Image and Avatar and , well , we didn't get any answer. I'm not surprise of it, looking now to the pages. Even if I still like the drawings and the idea I think I toke a wrong point of view for the story. Looking at this pages it looks like a silly action flick. And I wanted something else, no just a guy going around beating up the bud guys.

I got like around 30 b/w pages but I think I'm going to chuck them away and start over with the story, with a completely different approach, less focus on the guy with the funny dress and more focus on the story.

Anyway here are the original pages of the pitch.

POH color test

Lately I been working quiet a lot with grey scale and I was wondering how it feels to colour one of this panels with the grey already attached to it. Let me tell you , it just sucks.

I done the colors in a plis-plas ( that means super-fast). I want to try different stuff with POH and color maybe one of them. Dirty and fast.

D4ve 4

Just started to work on D4ve 4. This one is going to be a lot of fun! The scrip have a bit of everything so no one is going to be bored.

This are what I call early layout, to call them something.  Provably after 5 minutes I will not be able to remember what all this lines are ( I think you can only see the D4ve character)

POH panel of the day

This is my "one a day" panel  with Mark Bertolini. This is kind of a heat up before to start the working day, before the coffee . I though that after the sketch is done  I can crack a panel in one hour or so but, well, there is no way. It toke me a bit longer than that

Imaginary Drugs

I had done this pin up for the Imaginary Drugs project run by Michael McDermott. The Kickstarted campaign is now closed but you must take a close look to it. Is something that it will rock you .
The fantastic colours on the pin up had been done by K Michael Russell. If you want to be someone in the comic book industry doing colours you must take a look to his work and blog . Sure you will learn something ( I found myself checking often to see if I can learn something for myself)

POH ( Pieces of Hate) with Mark Bertolini

This is one of the main characters of POH ( Pieces Of Hate) a web comic that one day will see the light together  with Mark Bertolini .

I wanted to use this project to do thinks that until the moment I didn't have the chance to try like big action scenes and to try to improve my narrative skills and the ink of the pages. Still I don't like much what I'm doing, the pages feel so unnatural and most of the times they have a lack , lets call it, natural feeling.

POH still in a really early stage. At the moment I didn't have much time to work on it  even when my plan was to do just one panel a day.

But I'm going to fix this.
