These are sample pages of an idea I've been working on. Do you like gladiators? Do you like face-to-face action? Maybe you'll find this interesting.


Did you like what you saw? You can find more cool stuff here (http://pabloariasarte.deviantart.com/gallery/). Cheers -

overwhelmingly these pages are excellent, really nice work!
I'll point out a couple of things that stand out as off to me simply because I gather that as the point of the board here and I for one find having some specific things pointed out to me to look at very helpful

1. on page 3 panel 4 the way the tiger's head sticks out of the panel looks awkward to me, I'd have kept him in panel here and at most just had the blood break the panel boarder.

2. there are some places where your spot blacks look blotchy, they either don't fit into a coherent shadow pattern or need to be worked out from with half tone rendering (feathering, hatching, stippling, whatever you like best) it happens in a few places but a strong example is there character's forearms on page 5

again nice stuff

these are really good! made the crowd scenes look easy (good storytelling and layout). a few minor issues exist (page 2 top panel is to me kind of weak..). but, outstanding effort all around!
