Shugendo, a warriors path: Page 1 preview

Here's a preview of the first page from the first chapter of 'Shugendo, a warriors path' written by Kris Gardner.

Has been a while since the last time I've done the Anime/Manga style, but I find out that I can easily adapt me to it.

I'm also learning a lot about ninjas. It's a really cool project and I'm thankful to Kris that chose me to draw it.

I'll be uploading here some sketches and pages from time to time.

Anime/Manga style

I've been working in a few sketches for a new project in Anime/Manga style. The characters and the story are from Kris Gardner.
Hopefully I'll have more stuff related to upload soon.

New Gallery

I've added a new art gallery at my ComicSpace to show some sketches and different styles of artwork.

Hopefully, soon I'll have more material to put there.

Friday, November 23, 2007


I've been working hand-to-hand with the CableNube's members in order to create a 2-pages test for an editor these last days .

We made the short script and the layouts, then the sketches, the rendering and the inks.

Once all was done, we add to it some edition with Photoshop.

It took about 22 hours of work, and this was a great experience to work as a team.

The Master Key - Page 6 of 6

This is the last page, you can see all the finished pages are at my comicspace: The Master Key

The story has some meaning for me but I believe it's open to the reader's interpretation.

About the style that I've used, I think it works good but just for short stories and illustrations. The main issue that I found is that it requieres a lot of time, with the same quantity of lines used in a panel I could have done one or more lineal pages (well, maybe a little exaggerated).

Anyway, it was something fun to do.

The Master Key - Page 5 of 6

I've been drawing the last two pages in these days, so here they are, finally the story is complete.

The Master Key - Page 4 of 6

Here's the fourth page of the short story. Fortunately I'm not in a rush with this comic, I'm taking almost two weeks for each page.

Anyway, I've found some anthologies that are going to be published, so I'll have to finish this before the final date for submissions.

The Master Key - Page 3 of 6

Here's the third page completed. I've been experimenting a bit with these pages, trying to put some photos on the background, for example. So maybe these are not going to be the final versions.

I'm also uploading the pages at my Comicspace.

The Master Key - Page 2 of 6

Here's the second finished page. The original version is without text, but I'll be working on some texts to do an alternate version, possibly for submissions.

6-pages short story

I've been also writing a short story just for fun, and it's also useful to extend my gallery with new material. I'll try to work these pages with a new style, we'll see what happens.

It's possible that I'll try to get it published later, maybe at some anthology.

These are the little storyboards that I make once I have the script done. Their only purpose is to serve as a reference for the main sketches in the final page.

I'll try to upload here every finished page as soon as I have them ready.

What I've been doing these days

I've been working recently in the last pencilled pages of Tiny Life's issue 5. Once the first five issues are completely inked, toned and lettered by the creator of the series and president of Sliver ltd. Nick Jones, to final product will be submitted to a publisher.

Here's the official site of Tiny Life.

Good news

The short story "Ticking Away" written by Dan Fleming and Illustrated by me was accepted to be part of the Arcana Studios "Dark Horrors Anthology II".

Take a look and face the Dark Horrors

Role Playing Game

I've been working in finishing some details of an RPG that I've done about five years ago (and I've been developing it during about another five years). I've found it between old drawings and papers and I think that it has some potential.

I'm planning to submit it somewhere once all its pages are completely designed. It's about special forces in world war II. I know this has nothing to do directly with comics, but they're related somehow.

Ticking Away

Finally, here's the comic complete. I say thanks to Chris Beckett and Dan Fleming for making me a part of it, and I hope to have the chance to work with them again in the future.

Sunday, June 17, 2007

New work

I've met Chris Beckett and Dan Fleming from OnTheFlyPublications at comicspace, and I'll be working with them in a 6-pages story called 'Ticking Away'. The story is into an anthology. Here's a preview of the first page.

For more information about Chris and Dan:

Into the Comicspace

I've been working on an account at comicspace, and I'll do my best to keep it actualized.

Click here to check my comicspace.

You'll find more and new images from the projects.

Code: Humans: Page 1 test 2

Here's a new version of the first page. I think that I've corrected the failures of the previous version.

About colors, I think they could be necessary at a certain moment of the story, but in the meantime the grayscale accomplishes his objectives.

About the text boxes, I've tried to not interrupt too much the drawings.

Friday, June 08, 2007

Code: Humans: Page 1 test

Here's a little preview of a test that I've done in the first page of 'Code: Humans'. I've tried different coloring styles and also grayscales, and possibly I'll take this option.

Anyway this won't be the final version yet, the character's legs aren't clear and I hope to add more lights and shadows later.

I've added the text boxes just to see how it looks, but I'll have to work in how they're located across the page.

Even more new projects

More personal projects are on sight, this time a series of short stories that will conform a graphic novel or more.

At this time, 'Code:Humans' and 'The Messenger' are paused but I'm planning to finish at least 5 or 10 pages for 'Code:Humans' and use those pages to submit to different publishers.

The same thing for 'The Messenger'. It's possible that Rodrigo and me will start this project first. Time will tell.

Another new project

I've just finished the pencils of the first 5 pages for the project 'Deathmatch UK' written by Paul Holmes. The project is going to be submitted to various publishers. We'll see what happens soon.

Here's a preview of the first page, I've done the pencils, and Rodrigo Mavica the inks.

New project: Characters

I'm working right now in a new short 8-pages story written by Travis Gibb. These are his characters.
In this process of remaking the characters in my style (they were drawn by another artist before) I take the chance to test what style works better for the characters and the story. I think I'll be using both styles (shaded and lineal) for two different stories that are narrated in the same 8 pages.
The story is part of an anthology called 'Forbidden Paradise'.
You'll be able to know more about Travis at the Orange Cone Productions myspace.

Test Panels

Here's a test I've done for a publisher. Two panels that describe the script they gave me.

For this work I've used a more clean style than my usual work, and this will give a simpler job for the inker and a great chance for the colorist to create volumes and lights with the color.

I can use this style also for superheroic comics, but anyway I'll be uploading more of that specific genre soon.

Angels & Demons: Digital ink

Here's the same character from the previous post, now I'm using the same image to explain the process of digital inking that I've done, just like an experiment.

First I've done a really rough drawing of the character. I didn't detail a lot her face nor the clothes. Once the image is in the computer, I've used my Wacom tablet and Photoshop to start the inking.

The pro is that you'll be able to add lots of details. The only negative thing that I've found is that maybe it'll take more time than the common inking.

I'm still using markers for the inking, but I think I'll be considering the digital inking in the future.

Comic book: Angels & Demons

Here's an image from one of the characters in my story "Angels & Demons". I got this project aside at the moment, but as soon as can I'll be sketching all the pages and re-writing the script.

The story is about the internal struggle of a man in his way towards knowing himself, and in the search of his truth.

Code: Humans: Issue 1 preview

Here's Code: Humans page 1. These are the pencils digitally inked. However, maybe this won't be the final version.

This first page introduces the reader into the main character's dreams about his perfect future.

Let's remember that the story is set in a futuristic and decayed humanity.

Tiny Life: Issue 1 cover preview

Here's the first image of the cover for Tiny Life #01. This is just pencils, it'll be inked and lettered by Nick Jones, president of Sliver Ltd.

The concept was to show that this story is about a 'stick figure' character, so I've developed this image in where I show the difference between the main character and the rest of the people.

He's going to the left walking, and the rest is going in a rush towards the right side. He's also facing the sun, and the rest not.
Now I'm working on Tiny Life #03.

Comic books: Scripts status - Part 2

'The messenger' all the pages of 4 of the total 7 issues are already sketched by The EX3 Project team.

'America' right now the script is being developed by Rodrigo Mavica.

'Code: Humans' (image) it has all 4 issues sketched and now I'm deeply in the process of developing the characters designs.

Monday, March 05, 2007

Comic book: Code: Humans

Here's the first sketch for the main character of 'Code: Humans'. For now it's a short 4-issues mini-series, and thus far 2 issues are completely written and with their own story boards.

The story tells about a futuristic and decayed humanity, who suffers an alien attack leaving just a few humans alive on earth.

That's for now, I won't be revealing a lot until the work is more advanced, but I can tell that this isn't a typical 'alien invasion story'.

'Code: Humans' is being developed solely by Nicolás Colacitti.

Comic book: The Messenger

Here's a new design for the face of the main character in 'The Messenger'. However, it's possible that this won't be the final design. The story is set in the 1920's, and this man is in his search of a new beginning after his dark past in the Great War. He's now a private investigator, and the story is about his first great case.

The story involves mystery, horror, beliefs, and lots of symbols. We want the reader to take part and interact with the story to try to solve what's happening.

Let's remember that this story is the first that I do in group with the co-creator Rodrigo Mavica. The group is called The EX3 Project, and that blog will be updated soon.

Here's the preview of page 7 from Tiny Life #1.

Jed jr., the main character, is entering to a bus in his way to the house of one of his friends, and he seems to start having visions.

The script, inks, digital textures and lettering are the work of Nick Jones, president of Sliver ltd.
Pencils by Nicolás Colacitti.

Comic book script: Story boards

Here's a quick show of the first rough story boards for 'The Messenger #1'.
As you can see, the level of detail is minimum and for now it just has the utility of being a reference for the later sketches. These story boards give me a clearer view of the script, and also give me the chance to apply changes if something could be better represented.
Soon I'll be up loading more story boards and a few characters sketches.
As 'The Messenger' is being developed by Rodrigo Mavica and me under 'The EX3 Project' please also take a look into the group's blog.

Comic books: Scripts status - Part 1

At the moment NC Comics is working on a few own projects. All titles are tentative to change for now.

They are:

'The messenger' which is done with the participation of Rodrigo Mavica (The EX3 project team). The entire script is almost done, now in the process of sketching all the pages.

'America' which is also done by the The EX3 project team. At the moment the story is being defined, in its firsts steps.

'Code: Humans' which is for now entirely being made by Nicolás Colacitti. It's on his very first steps. Just concepts and ideas for now.

More information will come as soon as new material is produced. Thanks.

Tiny Life: Issue 2 preview

A preview of Tiny Life's page 02 from issue 2. Art by Nicolás Colacitti. The main character is called Jed jr. and he's a 'stick' figure who lives in a real world. Tiny Life corresponds to the scripts by Nick Jones, president of Sliver ltd. For more information, please take a look into the official site:

Music - Part 1

I've been working with a bass guitar and music software in order to bring to life a few songs or ambient music inspired in the comics I'm working on. I'll be probably making a video with images of the comics too.

Comic book script: Time line

The first steps in the creation of our first comic book script as a team, tentative title "The Messenger".
Having a resume of the main events in the story, we proceed making a time line for these events and a time line for each event in the lives of the characters.
"The Messenger" is supposed to be a 7-issues mini-series full of mystery, horror, suspense and mysticism.
Co-created by the artists and writers Nicolás Colacitti and Rodrigo Mavica.
