    Black and white comic pages

    I don't like to post here often because it's gotten way too scary... but here goes.

    There's a lot of things I can't draw, but I try to tell a story in each picture. Hope you like..

    It's got to be more than a memory, or is life just a fantasy and a piss in the sand?

    cool stuff, u got some nice angles on some of those shots.

    One thing that really stands out to me is that the intersection between the walls on the shot of the dude with the mask, (2nd to last) is not clearly defined, and just doesn't have the same lvl of finish that the others have.

    this is really well done.perfect light and mood. very noir blade runner meets matrix . like it alot. no crits becouse your skill level is more beyond my own. but as a consumer crit only thing thats disturbs me is why are they wearing gas masks? ok i know that gasmasks rock but i dont see why they need to wear it. nice concepts and feeling. show more if you got.

    Are there breaks in these pages? Right now the story does some leaps in a couple of places and I'm a little confused. Maybe if I knew where the page breaks are? Or is it supposed to run together like that? Also, the car scene has a lot of camera movement and comes very close to breaking the 180 degree rule (or at least slowing down the movement of the story while I try to get my barings in each panel). Just keep an eye on that.

    The art itself is very good. It has a great feel to it--dark and mysterious. My fav panels are #7, 10 and 13/14 together. No crits on the art at all. Can I ask what's going on in this, because I'm kinda baffled how each scene relates to another.

    I'm pretty sure its at least 50% digital.


    Great work anyway. Has a really cinematic feeling and I like the compositions (don't know if this is a correct term for stuff like this).

    The only frame I don't like is Deception-6.jpg. It is a lot weaker than the other ones.

    Zaknafain is 50% right. Actually it's all digital. Greyscale paintings in Photoshop with a paper texture overlay. The car coming out of the tunnel is actually a paintover of a 3D model..

    You guys are right about the 180 flip and the gas masks.. things I did in the heat of the moment but regret doing now. But at a rate of 1 page a day before the deadline, there's no way I can go back and fix it now!

    It's got to be more than a memory, or is life just a fantasy and a piss in the sand?

    Very nice, I like them all except the second to last one which doesn't quite live up to the rest of them (the gas mask angle and the 'guy in the bath'), but overall good work here, nice!

    Pencils before Pixels....in theory..

    Here's a couple more. I did these on a Celeron 1.7 with 128 MB of RAM on an ancient 21" monitor, in Open Canvas and Photoshop 7. It was a bitch.

    I'm not sure I followed the story accurately, but the illustration is mind-blowing. I always thought that if I went into comics, that it would have to be strictly black & white. Color, in my opinion, can sometimes distract way to much from the artist's ability. I think you've illustrated this Idea Brilliantly

    Wow!... You got what I call a "director's eye"!... Your use of angles (close up of the guy in glasses in shadows from below not clearly showing his face), stages (the closed door-->smashed door), and compositions (guy looking out of the car---you can totally tell he's thinking; I like that... I'm a sucker for "thinking" pictures of people rather than just being there looking pretty you know)...

    And yes!... It looks fantastic in black and white!... The stark contrast of the darks and the lights are just perfect but not over-the-top like Sin City--sorry, I know it has lots of fans here, but I think its b&w cinematography is distracting rather than helping the movie...

    EDIT: and I love the '40s theme with the car design...
