Freaking amazing. I have always liked to doodle and I fantasize about drawing comics but it is a grind. I think it's the repetition (?). Anyways: I am working on one now and the art to me is the most unpleasant part. Kudos!

@mikemaluk: First of.

1) you need to became an artist, work for marvel or DC or become a manga artist, put your talents to use.

2) Are you self taught?

3) You need to tell me how you do all that.

Wow, really fantastic stuff here! Particularly the coloring and the inking.

Out of curiosity, what sort of inks do you use? Classic india ink or pens of some sort?

In this case the inking was all done digitally. Used Photoshop, and a Wacom tablet. Thanks for your words dude!

1) hahaha doubt that, but thanks a lot friend

2) thanks again :)

3) Well,Practice is the main thing, the most important. But I do have some more advises like trying to do some live-drawing, drawing stuff you see, drawing yourself in the mirror. Observing A LOT human anatomy. Practice! Taking an art course will help for sure. I graduated in Design, and it helped me to grow as an artist, even though it is mainly computer classes, but I learned with some artists I found in the way, all experience is part of the learning process!Practice! Try to do as much sequential work as you can. Oh did I mention practice? ;)

4) Sure, mostly for buildings and perspective purposes.

1) I was being honest, the only artist i liked was Mike Deodato Jr, and you've defo surpassed him.

2) You're welcome :D

3) I'm terrible at observational drawings, especially the human anatomy. Guess i better go and find an Art class, im currently at college but im not studying art at all, so i have to find a private class. :( Guess practice makes perfect.

4) what about human anatomy?

5) you should make more and upload them, maybe you might think about making a tutorial one day? ;)

4) I use skeleton guidelines and basic shapes for sketching the figures yes, most times with a harder pencil before I get to the clean final pencils .

5) I´ll try, you can see some stuff on my blog like sketches and evolution gifs like:

Great work man, better than most artists. How long does it usually take you to draw a page? (I know it differs from each page, so how long did it take you to draw page 1?)
