View Full Version : Sequential, Filipino style!

For a local anthology. I looked at the works of some great Filipino masters (Alcala, Redondo) for inspiration when I was doing this. Those guys were so frickin GOOD!

Tsakiris, I wish my art was more realistic, like Redondo's, but I guess that's as far as it goes for now! Trying to deelop a more dynamic stlye on the side, as well!
TGK, Wiz, thanks guys!

First page really caught my attention. Good work with the hatching and shading. That's what geve it the realistic style. I also liked the various textures and effects you applied. Crits: storytelling in page three is confusing, couldn't understand what was going on; anatomy seems to be the biggest pickle here, animals included,there's room for improvement in that area.
Keep up the good work!

Great inking. Nice variety of textures. otherwise the same as Caio Reis.
But, it's still very solid work. Keep posting.

Just a couple of comments from what I saw on the initial look-over:
- Excellent leading of the eye. I could distinctly tell which direction I was supposed to go in through your use of character, props, text, tilts and panel placement. Very professional use of this important technique.
- Panel style and page design were right on the money with regards to usage. From the round panel on page one and the shocking panel shape when the whip hits all the way down to your open, borderless panels, you give us a strong sense of your understanding of visual stroytelling techniques.
- The one action that I didn't understand in this sequence was when the father used the whip. I couldn't figure out what he hit or the purpose of the action. It wasn't clear to me.
I teach an extensive course at the Alberta College of Art & Design here in Canada on visual storytelling techniques for sequential artists and writers, specifically in the field of comics. I would love to use these pages as examples of leading the eye, if you wouldn't mind.
Great work. And great artistic models to learn from in Alcala and Redondo. I love their work as well.

I finally took a look at your site and you have some amazing work on there. Quite talented, man. Now, looking at this sample, it seems a lot less detailed and more rushed than your other work. It also ressembles Keiron Dwyer's style. Is he one of your influences and were you more rushed in doing these pages?

Sevans, thanks man!
Creative, wow, thanks for the compliments, sir! I try to do my best with eye motion. Wilson Tortosa (of Battle of the Planets fame) really opened my eyes with that concept. Feel free to use the images, it'd be an honor. :)
Yeah, this sample was a bit more rushed than the other stuff on the website. Also, these are small pages, done smaller than bond paper size-- the actual comic will be digest-sized.

Great work! What do you charge per page for pencils and inks? I need someone yesterday for at least one 36 page book. Please respond ASAP. Thanks!
