Just a curiosity, how is that halftone effect done? : )

in this case it was traditional haftones. Meaning it's a semi-transparent, adhesive overly that you cut out and stick on the original art. You can replicate the effect in photoshop as well. I'm sure there's plenty of tutorials on youtube that can say it far better than I.

ha, that $20 price tag isn't around anymore. This is when I was a student and needed the spare change to eat...literally. Now I'm on my own with some freelance Marvel money. I can add potatoes to my rice and beans now.

Awesome character design and execution. You have a really good technique. That dotted, halftone effect is really cool. Very inspirational.

Stunning - very unique. S2ka was querying whether you'd like to ink one of our comics - he loves what you do with his art. We'll have to have you ink a short comic and of course illustrate one of my scripts as mentioned before. Need to create something especially with you in mind. Your artwork blows me away, every time.

Thanks Richard! I think we could work something like that. Have S2ka drop me a note or maybe an email.

Will do - we have some series being worked on too, one signed already, another to be pitched. Hopefully Leonardo will tell you more, there are tons of concept sketches to wet your appetite. One is a zombie western, the other a sci-fi actioner.

A lot of companies pulled the plus because of photoshop but you can still get it online for a decent price or bend over and pay the NY art store price which is pretty obscene.
