I´ve drawn a 5-page story for the DETECTIVE COMICS 27 issue. This has been a big honor, because this is a very special milestone issue celebrating the first appearance of Batman in a comic-book 75 years ago, and also because it has been written by legend Mike W. Barr.
I was very excited when I got the script and I really wanted to do something special at my highest standar. I´m sharing here the process for the first page of the story, but also a WIP page that I started drawing and soon I rejected because I felt it wasn´t as good as it should be.
I spend a lot of time thinking about techniques, composition, style choices, and whatever I can do to to push my skills forwards. Sometimes it takes a wrong step to realize I´m not in the good path. That page told me that Batman, for me, means some solid black ink. Not watercolors. Sharp lines, not soft volumes. Today, as an artist, I feel a bit less insecure than yesterday. But only a bit.
