Dots fun

Having fun creating some zip-a-tone in Photoshop. This kind of halftone screen ot's something I've ever liked in comics, gives some extra "vintage" feel to the page and, 'cause of it's very difficult to find some of it into the stores, I'm trying to create some of my own in Ps. It's just a 1st test, in fact it looks a bit messy (specially on the left-hand side face) but I really like how it makes the foregroud figures so "in your face" poping up from the bg. If someone of you got some tutorial about this thing or has or is still using this technique any comments and tips will be very apreciated.

Here's a side-by-side of a panel I've been usig as "Patient Zero"... no, I'll be not using this halftone thing into the actual book.

EDIT: This's the good time I buy a damn Photoshop user manual, can't believe the amount of stuff you can do just knowing how to do that... and thanks internet.

Random panels

Some random panels from some pages I've inked in the last days.

A guy left alone with his guns:

What the...?

Still alone:

Comics x Africa 2011

Just get back from the 2011 edition of the Comics x Africa the benefit manifestation featuring international comic artists, and people from the show biz (music, television and so...). Did a lot (very lot) of sketching and spent my time with amazing people. The whole thing takes place in the thermal garden of Telese (BN) so the staying has been very enjoyable (specially in this time of the year). I'll try to post some pic if I'm able to find some. Now I'm back in the heat of my studio and going to finish something I've left on table 4 days ago and taking a deep breath 'cause i don't think I'll see the direct light of the sun before the end of august.

Rogue commission

I'm sure enough it's the first time I draw this character.

Done in pencil, ink and markers.
