Final two-page spread for Nonplayer #1, released April 6 2011 by Image Comics. You can buy a copy of the comic here: [link]

And the digital version of the comic can be found here: [link]

All of the pages for Nonplayer are drawn directly in Photoshop CS3 using a Cintiq tablet monitor. For line work I use default brush settings at 100% hardness.

For coloring, I use the popular Multifill and Flatten plugins ([link]) to build selectable areas of color, and then I add new layers of color at different blend modes and opacities (this is a pretty random, haphazard, and slow process).

Wow, your line work and detailing is overwhelming and breath taking.  Sort of reminds me of Darrow meets Mucha/Art Nouveau?  I am embarrassed to be so unfamiliar with your work, but I will be seeking it out!  I also like how you link to other cool info/stuff!

Excellent work. It's rare for comic artists to put such attention into backgrounds.

I own the print shop that did these posters for you.  I hope you are happy with them.  I look at this everyday and I have not grown tired of seeing it.  It always stops me in my tracks and I have to look for a minute...no matter how busy I am.  Wonderful work!

Wow I'm impressed, and that hard to do anymore the composition and line work are nice and clean, maybe a bit more line weight in a few places might help with separation but on the whole Kudos. Keep it up your on your way.the color work is really nice to good use of the palette u have chosen.
