More pencils and ink work for a short story written by a friend, that I will maybe finish one day. Pure black and white to work on fundamentals. Working in B&W is extremely interesting. This is something I'd like to try seriously even if color is one of the important things to me (being a colorist and all).

Sequentials! I drew those 4 pages of sequentials as a test for myself and as a kind of proof of concept I had for a 60s/70s crime story type in the vein of Bullit, The Getaway, Dirty Harry. Quite happy with the result despite some glarings mistakes and some layout maybe a bit too experimental in places. All those pages were drawn and colored very quickly to keep the flow moving and to make it 'ongoing monthly ready'. I like the colors overall and I'm quite happy with the car (a '69 Charger) something that in the past I had a lot of trouble doing. Working on those pages was fun and useful to put in practice a lot of tricks I learned lately (especially with Photoshop).

Death rides again! I'm currently doing some work for Silent Devil again and I did a little re-coloring on one page drawn by Se7enhedd from 'Death Comes To Dillinger' issue 1 as a promo piece for issue 2 (in stores now!). Just playing with a different, darker color scheme and some aging distressed effects that I quite like. I painted it listening to some good Ennio Morricone and Luis Bacalov music. Nothing like Italian Westerns and their soundtracks. If that picture alone doesn't make you want to buy the books.... Could probably make a nice poster too. I'm also working on some secret projects with James Patrick, the awesome writer of the Death book. Maybe more soon.

This is my first post and my first try at an art blog which has no other function than display the art I'm currently working on. Right now I'm doing some coloring on the interior pages of 'Warhammer 40,000' for Boom! but I can't show anything just yet. What I can show is a page I colored for 'Death Comes To Dillinger' published by Silent Devil and available now in any good comicstore. Go buy it now! You won't regret it.
