Abe page 17 walk through by JHarren Abe page 17 walk through by JHarren
Here's a walk through from pencils to Dave's colors. There's been requests in the past to see early stages. I no longer use regular graphite pencil these days. Now I go from blue right to inks without erasing...and without agonizing over greyed ink lines that my eraser ravaged. I'll never use a regular pencil again if I can help it.

Dave's colors are so awesome.

sooooooooo, so awesome...

Just looking at these walk throughs made me dig out my issues and read them several times over. Amazing work.

OH GOSH!
I LOVE Abe and I LOVED these issues.
This was an absolutely stellar scene.
Stylish and brutal.

Please tell me you'll be working on him again! <3

Thank you! I have been reading the previews on Abe Sapien: The Devil Does Not Jest. It is already in my cart at TFAW. Both issues, and the variant cover too. :la:

I also saw that there is going to be a trade too!

Uhm...your artwork....blows my poor old mind away...

In the second panel of the pencil version, I thought he punched a crocodile. I'm SLIGHTLY disappointed to see that's not the case. Still awesome though ;)

Such a great fight scene. Really cool to see your pencils too, I wondered how loose you were in that stage.

JHarren Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011  Professional
It's even looser these days. Just blue pencil than straight into the inks.

That's amazing. Btw I finally got Monkey King as per your recommendation. AMAZING! Weird as hell, the art blows my mind and now I feel completely inferior.

that's how I feel as well. His creature designs and detail are obscene! The second volume came out in Japan. Maybe Dark Horse will get that over here soon.

thanks, man! I had about two months per issue on this project, actually, which is more generous than most projects allow. It's usually about 5-6 weeks an issue.
