Page 2 of 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).

So your comic is going to hollywood, congrats! Your artwork is a standar of quality.
So you say that you ink this with PS with 100% hardness? Do you use the option for the bursh size to be changed by pressure? It also seems that you lock transparency and sometimes paint the lines of the background of a different color, wich gives a great effect (an maybe you also do the same for the inside part of the rocky areas)
I'd love to see the pencils!! Great work!!!
Btw, The Project Waldo development blog is down.

When I say "pencils", I mean the sketch part, I know you do everything in Photoshop.

I really love the usage of really bright colors in this. Sometimes people forget you don't have to use black to show depth. I love this.

This is beautiful! I love the tone of the colors that you used and I enjoy your clean and detailed line work, nicely done! :)

I really like the design of that creature this guy is using for a mount as well.
