My Bio

Visual designer, illustrator, and (soon-to-be) graphic novelist. I've been a fan of comic books and fantasy forever, went the route of graphic artist and web designer to pay the bills, but now I want to do what I love most in life, tell stories through a comic book or graphic novel medium.


If you like fantasy and/or comics and graphic novels. I would honored if you followed me (don't we all want that), and I'll publish stories that grab your attention and make you want more.


Stay tuned....

Starts off pretty good. A nice establishing shot. Not sure if you winged the perspective, but it looks a little off, so always use guidelines to establish your persecutive correctly then you can freehand over teh guides if you want a nice organic feel.

The break down is in the story telling. Obviously something big happens in panel 2, but I can't tell what? Is that fire? Or an explosion? And then, where did the figure come from? He wasn't in the establishing shot as far I could tell. And the last panel is just too difficult to understand what is going on. So I'd really practice on your story telling. It's hard to do so expect to need lot's of practice. The goal should always be to understand the image regardless of any panels before or after.

Personally, I like your rendering style. I think ANY rendering style can work in a story if you nail down the basics. Your rendering needs to be obvious that you know what you are rendering but it can be very loose like you have here. Your mix of inking with grey wash is a very forgiving style and looks great.

So all-in-all I hope I helped a bit. Keep up the good work. Every artist masters their craft a little bit every day.
