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".

Making of a page: DETECTIVE COMICS #27

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.
