Hey people, thought of sharing my Top Cow Talent hunt submission here. Only did this three pages. Didn´t have much time, and at the time I thought it would be better to color the three penciled pages I had, than rush the rest of the script. Now I´m thinking that I should have done more penciled pages instead haha. Would love to read your thoughts on it. Thanks.

You can check the pencils on my blog:

I really like what I'm seeing here. If not Top Cow today, there's no doubt it will be another publisher tomorrow. great stuff!

I really wouldn't take not winning the contest too hard, the sheer number of entries had the odds stacked against you already regardless of your work. Not to mention who knows what the internal criteria was to judge the winner.

Based off of these 3 pages, I would be very surprised if you did not find professional work in the future. I would have to nitpick to bring up faults as your overall style is pretty solid, but some panels are better than others. As you said you were rushed I do not want to comment further unless I was able to see more of your work and feel qualified to offer anything of worth.

@mikemaluk hey great work man! Def keep it up and youll be published for sure. If you dont mind me asking how long have you been working on the comic format and drawing? Just curious because ive drawn my whole life and have finally decided to tackle writing and drawing my own graphic novel. Its tough.. was just curious about your thoughts and process.
