Espiral: Christmas Tale 18

This year's Christmas Tale makes it the 18th, which means it can vote.

And it has decided to be done fully digital, no ink, no paper, nothing but bits and bytes. The future is here.

I hope that you like it.

Comic book page made with Cintiq

This story won't see the light!
First approach to a comic book page with Cintiq.
I'm still quite sloppy, I'm loosing time doing things that once learned will be done really fast. By now the sensations are really good.
Next stage a short story.

My first serious doodle with Cintiq

Manga Studio 5.0.2 + Cintiq
It's taken me too much time, new way of working, new software… But anyway, there's no coming back, full digital!

More digital.

Alicia, from Espiral.
Today I just tried the watercolors and my mind exploded into pieces. Manga Studio 5, once I get a Cintiq I won't have any excuse not to do the transition. Digital world, ge ready for me!

Going digital

Ana from Espiral.
Here my first tryout with Manga Studio 5, it's a really warm and welcoming software. I've used my A5 Wacom Intuos 3, makes me think of what to do about buying a Cintiq, maybe I won't need it?

By now this is just trying things but sooner than later I will have to go 100% digital, what am I going to do with all those cool markers and brushes and things!? Sometimes is great to do regular watercolor, without any computer or second chances.

X-Men #39 Cover process

This one came so naturally that it's probably the fastest cover I've ever done. When the idea is clear there's nothing to do, you just… do it.
First sketch, one minute?

Color sketch.

Ink, see the black masses in Domino's breasts?
Final color. Darker masses and lots of space to compose the image at designers taste (up and left).

Finished.

Red is always better for a cover,

For this cover I kept in mind that I had to leave room for the logos and used that space to focus on what's important here, the character.
