Really Really Really Rough

The way I like it.

Okay so you twisted my arm. i'm just in the preliminary stages of figuring out this short story for AFTERWORKS 2- its going to be an anthology by a lot of very very very talented artists- then me. And... Its all going to be in color. Since I knew poop about color Im sure you will all be in for an interesting ( to say the least) treat. So without further ado here are some roughs- studies and pages.


Oh yeah. these are all done on my cintiq. no paper

That sniper is toast. He's broken several of the primary rules of being a sniper. Mainly, lying out in the open with nothing but some sandbags as cover.

Love the raw quality that your tablet allows you. Gawd, it must have cost you an arm and a leg!

Brian Growe--- Me to brian me too. I'm comitted though.

St John Street----Thanks man- I love your sentiment but im more of a world building kinda guy not world destroying. So lets someday meet and BUILD a world- with lots of kick ass robats and explosions and shit.

Paolo Pace----Weeeellll, technically hes not IN the open hes on top of a mineret- so hes got the high ground hes got the whole of the structure for cover and the marines well... they can t get him but he can get them.... however you are right because the F-18 is gonna get the sniper. heh heh.

The wacom cintiqs have come down in price so it only cost me a few fingers.

yeah man, nice pages! i like the flow and movement.
we just started using the cintiqs at work for boards and i also just got my pc tablet yesterday. man that thing is awesome. now we can all stand around and toss our pencils in a fire while sining songs and holding hands.

jk, im still a pecil and paper guy at the end of the day, theres only so much computer drawing my eyeballs can handle.

see, the only part that sucks is that i cant watch movies and draw at the same time, unless of course you have a duel screen set up, which i dont. we need our first hit film to upgrade to that. Knight is only throwing down so much money.
