Hi there, I decided to start a new thread since my other ones are saturated with old stuff.
Here you have a couple of pages I did this week as tryout for DC, I hope you like them!

See you around guys! :carrot::carrot::carrot:

Absolutely perfect work, as always. Love your style.

Thanks Colby! Well... DC liked this, however they said it was perhaps too dark, and with an independent vibe for their current comic line :/

That may seem like bad news but I think it's great; they told you exactly what to focus on. That means you're very close to rounding some necessary corners.

Too dark means 'draw less,' as in don't put as many dark marks on the page. Because some of them? Are bullshit. The buildings, the backgrounds, a lot of it is weird shapes. I know what you're going for -- like in the Bat Beyond cartoon which I love -- but it isn't working and it looks like you don't know perspective. That's worrisome to an editor.

Your anatomy is ok but it should be both referenced AND perhaps more cartoony at the same time. Understanding the basic shapes of muscles and bones fitting together will aid you when exaggerating ie pulling/pushing shapes and gestures to aid compositional energy and eyeflow.

You're close. Get the background looking like I could fall into them and the figures like they could catch me if I fell; however you do those things effectively is called 'style,' ineffectively it is known as a 'mistake.'

Do more pages, post them! Keep going.

I'm getting some sick Mignola vibes from these man keep it up. I lokve the contrast, I'd just work some on your facial proportions a bit, but this is fantastic, I like it!

Thanks, Spirit. Well, I guess the point here isn't matching the Batman Beyond vibe but matching the DC current comercial style :p

I think these look pretty damn good myself...

I never liked Batman Beyond, but I like these pages.
Your style is a good fix for this take on the character.
Keep it up!

Very good work here!

Thanks, anyway I'll work harder next time!

Wow, good work and I liked your separating black from white and usage. I find it that's really tricky and takes a bit of planning your panels. You did everything right here. since DC liked it but couldn't put you on a project, you might want to approach other markets. You'd be super good in a noir style books.
