long time no posting

Post by hanzo » Wed Apr 18, 2007 9:09 am

I've been absent for a long long time now... health problems before and then work prevented me from drawing... but that is history now!
So, now I've got some new stuff to show! And as usual, since I believe this is one of the best forums around, I'm really interested in hearing what you thing about it!

The project I'm working on right now is set in the time right after WWII in Italy and it talks about jazz and love!
here's some of the first pages (I hope they're not too big):

that's quite beautiful, and a time period of great interest :) can't wait to see more~

is that completely brushwork? (color aside) if so... mind sharing a trade secret of how you did the trumpet texture?

translation possible?

Thanks for the comments! I really appreciate it!
dknowles: it's all "analogue brushwork" I used photoshop to put all the things together but nothing more.
I don't know if there's a secret behind the trumpet texture... I just took some pics from the net and looked at the reflections these instruments make... then it's just a question of splitting tones between white, black and the blue halftone. I usually do the inking before, use some white paint to make those white dots (the lights reflected on the metal). on one side you'll have a clear border between the white and the black, on the other side you have kind of a gradient, which I make using a dry brush on both the black and the halftone.
Honestly I don't think these trumpets are that good... I've seen people do much better... but this should be the right way...

Gorgeous storytelling! The inking is great. I love how you altered the panel shapes and gutters to indicate music.

I still have to letter the pages, and to put the notes and stuff in the right spaces... right now I'm busy working on other projects, but I should soon be able to show you more!
thanks for the comments in the meantime!
