Rex Mundi #1 V2

Here I tried something different, I drew the layouts for the page as always, then I scanned it and worked the building and garden using Photoshop with my Wacom, but as you can see on the second picture the result was a very stiff and computer generated image that looked odd and too clean, so I printed the drawing and I started messing with it with pencils and water colors, when I scanned it again, it ended looking a lot better and more organic like.

then I added the guns at the bottom and later I finished the second panel in a regular fashion, but to see the complete page you'll have to buy the book. ;)
Emissary#2 Cover, this issue was supposed to hit stands today, but someone forgot to send it to the printer, nice job someone! :(

Finally I added shadows, lighting and texture to create the final piece.

then I added some blacks to the page and painted the flats (just plain colors without the shading).

then I teaked the levels to make the pencils look darker.

ok this is the page I drew yesterday, from Rex Mundi#1 from Dark Horse.
I'm going to show the steps I took to produce this page.

first I scanned the page

Here is the cover I did for


Written by Arvid Nelson, penciled by Eric Johnson, colored by Jeromy Cox, colored by Jim Di Bartolo, cover by Juan Ferreyra.

In a Paris where magic is real and the Catholic Church never lost its political power, one man's quest to solve a murder may lead him to the Holy Grail itself!

Doctor Julien Saunière continues his investigation into the theft of a mysterious medieval scroll, only dimly aware of the forces tugging him to the doorstep of the powerful Duke of Lorraine. Lorraine wants to provoke a massive, globe-spanning war that will soak the world in blood‹but why? The answer to that question, a deadly confrontation in the ancient catacombs beneath Paris, and a blasphemous revelation about Judas, Christ's betrayer, all await Julien in this volume of the critically acclaimed series Rex Mundi!

176 pages, $16.95, in stores on Sept. 13.

Emissary #4, on this issue Emissary visits the Pope.
the drawing was based on a famous Dali's painting of Jesus
