Gracias tocayo querido, estuve probando algunas cosas de photoshop que me parece que son más de fotografía, para retocar la iluminación y esas cosas, a ver qué salía...

Oh this is wonderful, she makes me think of an Italian action movie heroine from the 1970's, for some reason.

That's awesome-- I kind of thought of some type of "Buffy, the vampire slayer" kind of character, but an Italian action movie heroine from the 70s sounds much more interesting to me! Thank you! :D

Thanks Rakesh! I've been trying some coloring techniques a bit different to what I usually do. :)

I was playing around with coloring techniques a bit different to the all-flat colors I usually stick to, and I'm glad you think so, thanks, Jelena! :glomp:

You colored everything very well. I like the bats in the background.

Thanks, Sam! I've inked this one with a super thin .0 brush, which I haven't used in almost 4 years, I think! :faint:

Ah, you'll love it, brother-- really grim, no doubt, but Eisner-esque in ways you in particular will really appreciate.

I've just found someone online from the town where I live who sells an imported hardcover edition, which is weird since there are not comic-book stores here... :faint: [link]
I'll see if I can get it at a cheaper price (there was an edition that a book publisher from here put out in 2009, in 2 volumes), and if not I'll go for this one. ;)

Love the look of the inks and the dry brush look of the colors. Although this is photoshop , it really makes me want to do some acrylic painting again.
Great work as always!

Thanks, Mikey! I haven't yet managed to achieve a rough edge/dry brush type of look when coloring digitally (I tried some photoshop brushes, but didn't like the results...), so here what I did was to actually make ink wash textures, which I later scanned in, adjusted the levels, and finally colored in photoshop. I'd like seeing your work painted with acrylics, should you post some of it! ;)
