PRE-COMMISSIONS Saló de BCN

En el próximo Saló de Barcelona voy a tener una mesa de dibujante compartida con mi compañero Paco Díaz. Estaré firmando y haciendo sketches, pero si algún aficionado a los dibujos por encargo quiere una pieza de mayor calidad, puede encargármela antes.  Calculo que podré hacer unas 5. Más info en la sección "commissions". Los sketches del Saló serán más baratos que estos (y más "sketches" por cuestión de tiempo). Nos vemos en Bcn.

I´m attending the Barcelona Ficomic ComicCon. I´ll be doing sketches in the artist alley table I´ll share with pal Paco Díaz. In case you want a better quality piece you can pre-order a commission. More info in the "commissions" section. The prices in the Con will be lower, for a more sketchy drawings. Thanks!

CATWOMAN #04 (more) unseen pages

As I promised yesterday, here you have 4 pages that were never published.
Some people will say they were censored, but that´s not exact. The new pages were not a toned down version of these, they were telling another story. Actually, we had a big turning point here that could have changed the whole book from this point: Selina knows who Batman is. You don´t need ballons to get that from yesterday´s pages..
 Maybe DC didn´t want to explore that storyline, so it´s not that obvious that the new pages were drawn just to remove the sexy content. It´d have been much more easy to censor these pages than having to redraw them all.
 
This is the funny thing: who knows?

Somebody asked why am I showing this stuff now: I´m not going to keep them secretly in a drawer until I die, and I´m not going to burn them, right?
I´m doing a selection of original art for sale and if I don´t show them, the buyer will anyway, so...
 
Btw, some of the little panels strategically placed over Selina´s body were drawn separately. Maybe I´ll post a scan of the original art tomorrow. Ha, ha, this is a dirty trick to get more pageloads. Why do I need pageloads? I don´t know, I have no ads!
 
Ah, these pages never got colored. The decision to change the story came in the gap between inks and color.

It seems a naked Catwoman helps getting pageloads.

CATWOMAN #03 unseen pages.

The pages below were supposed to be pages #16 to #20 from Catwoman #3. This has been one of the few times I´ve been asked to redo pages. Actually I was asked to draw some new pages from a new piece of script. I got an explanation about why DC wanted to change the story and get some new pages done, but I guess it all have to do with the sexy depiction of Selina in these original pages. I didn´t mind at all, since it wasn´t my fault and I got paid for the extra job. The only thing I don´t like is to work on stuff that remains unused.
 
So I´m showing these pages now, but I must confess I don´t like them at all. I don´t like how Selina looks like when she´s naked. Both the body and the face. I´d like to think today I´d do a much better job, and a bit more classy. The colored pages look much better thanks to Tomeu Morey.
Anyway, this is only an artwise issue I have. The action in this scene was a depiction of who Selina was: a woman taking advantadge of her sexuality to get something from a man. That made sense according on how the character had been approached in the earlier New52.
 
That´s it. 4 more pages were kept unseen from issue #4, come back tomorrow.

Oldies but Goldies: BADMAN page 1

Most people, specially from US, know my work for DC comics. Some other people from France or Spain have read my books in french/spanish and barely know about my superhero stuff. Only a few, those who follow my work from my early years -I love you guys-, know my older manga-influenced stuff. In between all that, I´ve tried many styles in short stories that had a very unnoticed life.

Since most of the times I  can´t post my current WIP beacuse it hasn´t been announced yet so I can´t show it, I´m going to start a series of posts about my more unknown/old work. I could have named it "The back alleys of my hard disk", but I´ll call it "Oldies but Goldies".

Expect the unexpected! Today: Bad-man, or "my style after Will Elder´s Little Annie Fanny".
