great pics! ..altough I like Gab's pencilled version of the final cover better than Isanove's colored one ..it has more class. Not that I mind Richard Isanove, he is a great artist and colorist. I heard Richard isanove was going to do a creator owned project with a french company ..anybody heard about this ??
..that Isanove stuff looks damn sweet!! Guess I have to go hunting for a French comic ..ah, I did it before with Gab's Arcatera, Die dunkle Bruderschaft. I understand German a wee bit better than French, but it is still more a book with great pictures than a comic I enjoy reading..
Hi, I colored that cover a couple of weeks ago, and I thought I'd drop by to say hello. Thanks for the kind words. And for the not so kind ones, sorry, I'll do better next time. It was a pleasure working with Gabriele. I saw him signing at Angouleme last year and I was blown away by his sketckes. It was intimidating to work with someone that usually paints his own drawings and is good at it. I looked at some of his other stuff and noticed he liked to use light as a story telling device, to put the accent on what he wants to stand out, like a spot light. On this cover, Gabriele used a backlighting at the bottom of the figure and a strong lateral light at the top. His idea, he told me, was to have the figure go very dark at the bottom. It was a little complicated because recently, I've been working with people that use only one light source so I had to switch gears a little bit. It's cool though, it forces you to think a little differently than usual. I used a simple primary color combination(yellow, blue and red), to try and bring a classic Comics feel to the piece. It's good that they brought back the old costume (almost), I think it a very strong design and it's easy to make it look cool. I like the final piece and I'm glad Gabriele seems to have liked it too. I'd like to thank him for the opportunity. I can't imagine how hard it would be to have someone else color my drawings.
slyfox: I was curious how would I get a copy of the the spiderverse banner. I bought it a while ago but had an ex steal it when she moved out. IS there anyway for me to purchase it or does anyone know of anywhere or anyone that is selling it?
