SO the book is coming in this week, and we’re all hoping you’ll grab it (in exchange for cash of course) and the story is set after the events of Chaos War. Silver Surfer is written by Greg Pak and interiors done by our good friend Stephen Segovia. I had the privilege of doing the covers.
There will be a signing for the launch of the series; however locally at Comic Odyssey in Robinsons Galleria this Saturday. Present will be Stephen Segovia and Harvey Tolibao. Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend as Deadline looms… I also will not be able to attend Komikstrip scheduled also this Saturday.
As you’ve already seen the full colors for the cover, allow me to share the pencils and inks
Inked by the incredible Danny Miki, complete with all those tiny swirling thingie that he effectively executes. I just love it.
And here is the layout rendered digitally. These days I heavily depend on the light table, with which the layout is projected underneath the board, hopefully in the future I get to shed more on that process. Also I rarely draw layouts on paper these days as I would have to scan resize and print. Drawing digitally, I’d just have to print. And not to mention the “undo”button offers so much freedom
And this is the layout that did not get approved, since it would give away too much if issued for the press release months before… and surfer’s a bit small too.
I usually don’t layout pages this detailed, but after the hiatus, I was in a hurry to get my painting hand back. And it’s fun.
