ASHES teaser panel

Chosen for its Halloweenishness:


There's a great review of the first digitally serialised chapters of Alex DeCampi's ASHES 250-page original graphic novel over at Bleeding Cool, which also has ordering information if you missed out on the Kickstarter.

Above is a panel from one of the nearly 50 pages I did for the book.  It's an intimidating collection of artists to run with, including Dan McDaid, Mack Chater, Milton & Felipe Sobreiro, Carla Speed McNeil, Colleen Doran, Bill Sienkiewicz, Alice Duke, Alem Curin, RM Guerra and others.  It was my first time drawing and coloring that many pages for a single project so it was a learning experience and almost like learning to run again after the years spent working outside comics.  I think I drove Alex half-mad with how late I pushed things -- or perhaps just the rest of the way!  The story is that crazy-good, so I have my suspicions . . .

Sometimes it's better to start over

Inking the artwork for the upcoming Perna Studios Sorcery set and realised I was blowing it;  some of the base drawing was off and I was making some thoughtless line work on top of some poorly planned pencils that I only noticed after the line went down.

Oh, well.  I can make adjustments and start over inking tomorrow.

Men of the Shadows, part 2

Robert E. Howard's SAVAGE SWORD #6 should be out from Dark Horse in the not too distant, so I thought I'd start teasing some of the art from the second instalment of Men of the Shadows.
