Josh Burggraf sent me an envelope filled with awesomeness. Future Shocks and his Kid Space Heater comic. I'm so happy to see our Sky Canyon pages in the flesh. We're going to storm our brains to develop the story further and then draw like crazy until Sky Canyon is out!

Sky Canyon, Detrocboi pt. 1, 1/3

Here's a lettered version of my first chapter in Sky Canyon, a comic by Josh Burggraf and I. Sky Canyon is going to be a multiple viewpoints comic, with lots of intertwining plots and gimmicks.
The first two chpaters are available for preview in Future Shock 3, along with Josh's first one and lots of other great comics.

Neighbourhood Of Infinity, pt.1 5/7

Gutta is waking up after the spaceship's crash-landing.
I bet you hope to see her and Tarla reunite soon. I do so too.

Finally a new upload, sorry for the delay but the last was a damn stressful couple of weeks and among all the hiccups my computer crushed and it took me quite some time to recover the files of the NOI pages, but, at last, here they are.

Some sketches, the first one was made in April I think, it was an attempt at creating some sort of spaceship captain. The other two are more recent.
These were all made for Helios' stories but I think I'll put the rightmost guy somewhere in Sky Canyon.

I recovered from the flu and I gotta finish a couple of pages these days. Updates soon.

Here's page 1 of my first chapter in Sky Canyon.
Sky Canyon is a comic by Josh Burggraf and I, we split viewpoints to tell a story through its many characters, it's going to be great so check our pages to see how it proceeds and get more news about it.

A couple of monster designs screaming "Go Nagai is my co-pilot!"
I'm not updating frequently cause I'm busy working on Neighbourhood Of Infinity and I also started the collaboration project I mentioned earlier. Big things ahead.

Some sketches from a couple of upcoming things.
Clockwise from top let are a space criminals' grunt, a character that will soon appear in a short comic I'm making for a zine, a very important character in Neighbourhood Of Infinity and an alien creature appearing in N.O.I. again.

Tomorrow I have an exhibition opening and then I'm starting to work on two big projects, one is the remaining part of N.O.I. and the other one is a very cool and big collaboration, I think we'll share more details about it sometime soon, but I'm very excited about it. So stay tuned!

Neighbourhood Of Infinity, page 1

This is the first page of my new comic.
The first eight pages will be premiered at an exhibition, that's why the subtitle is in Italian.
The first part focuses on Gutta, the female protagonist and her troubled journey to reunite with her lover Tarla.

I still have to add speech bubbles and maybe adjust some things then it's done.
As usual I colored it all with Copics and Poscas.

Hype!!!

Detrocboi booklet #2: Neighbourhood Of Infinity.

This time it won't be short comics but a whole story and some illustrations, hopefully out by the end of the year.

By the way, sorry for the prolonged absence of new posts on here, between the month in London and the load of work I got when I came back I really haven't the time to write much.

I drew these blokes in London and colored them today, I was in a dire need to get back to my big box of Copics and colour something.

I'm starting to work on new comics these days, updates soon.

Hey!

I'm back from London, got back a little earlier than expected because I've a lot to do in here for the next couple of months.
I'll be working on new comics, one for a zine, one for a magazine and another one will be presented at an exhibition in September and will then appear on Detrocboi Booklet #2.
London was amazing, I had a great time, met new friends and talked with publishers, a really positive experience.

Expect some more updates, sketchbook scans and anything else in the coming days, right now I'm working on a schedule for all the things I gotta make. Talk soon.

Even more sketches! A robot, a kaijin grunt, a floating demon's head, a weird character, a slum dweller and some sort of guardian dog. Some of this will appear in Helios' second adventure.
I'm finishing a commissioned work these days then I'm back again working on Helios' comics,

First page is here. This is one of my favorite pages, I'm really happy with the layouts for this comic.

This comic appears in Lodaçal Comix 5.
I still got some copies of Detrocboi booklet. It's on sale, c'mon, buy it!

Another bunch of sketches for upcoming comics, clockwise from top left are an exorcist, a robotic cyclops, an alien and the Space President, my favorite one.

Sketches

Untitled, a photo by det.roc.boi on Flickr.

Some sketches for Palace Mafia grunts and a kaijin alien. I think Palace's grunts will be more anonymous, I'll have to draw lots of them so I'm aiming for a faster costume to draw.

Ella Megalast & Her Bodyguard

A space celebrity and her alien bodyguard.

Ella's name comes from a Cocteau Twins' song.

The rocket headed mafioso.

This is a little more Go Nagai-ish and I love it.

Perfumed Metal

Perfumed Metal, a photo by det.roc.boi on Flickr.

Palace Mafia's number 1 assassin, she has shooting fingers.
Yes, she has two brains drawn over her ass, Perfumed Metal always aims for the head.

Her name comes from Chrome's song

Lila Engel

Gorio Granfalloon

Gorio Granfalloon by det.roc.boi
Gorio Granfalloon, a photo by det.roc.boi on Flickr.
Gorio's a bodyguard for the Palace mobsters' boss and sort of Helios' nemesis.
This is his common appearance, his alien race's power allows him to mutate shape in certain cases.

The surname comes from Vonnegut's Cat Cradle, Granfalloon is a group of people who unite for a meaningless purpose.

I wanted to create a mix of elegant and strange clothing, he's supposed to be a weird character and I think his clothing reflects it. Went a little rougher for this one.

Witchcraft Trial, Bitter Blood At Coalstone Cliff

The blood in the orb will tell if she's a witch or not.

Had this one in the drawer for maybe more than a year; so I decided to adjust and complete it before starting to do anything else. Maybe I rushed a little bit, I'm not entirely happy with the results, although I really like the redhead's clothing. I think it may be resurrected once again in a while, maybe work a whole different way through it.

Helios Creed

Helios Creed by det.roc.boi
Helios Creed, a photo by det.roc.boi on Flickr.

Here's a design development drawing for the protagonist in my upcoming science fiction comic.

Helios is part of a group of private agents, working borderline cases that cross the boundary between reality and supernatural events.

The name comes from Chrome's genius guitar player, the next bunch of comics have lots of homages to bands I like and are a constant soundtrack, and inspiration, when I draw.

Virtua Mondo

Virtua Mondo by det.roc.boi
Virtua Mondo, a photo by det.roc.boi on Flickr.

Since she got great success here's a full figure drawing of Virtua Mondo, double crossing spy.

I retouched as little as I could from the first sketch I made of her; my first inspiration came from Roni Fugate from P.K. Dick's The Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch.
I had fun designing her clothes; I drew inspirations from modern clothing, Star Wars, a little bit from Jojo's Bizarre Adventures and added some subtle ethnic elements.

So now she's definitely in the comic. =)

Some sketches

Untitled by det.roc.boi
Untitled, a photo by det.roc.boi on Flickr.
Here are some sketches of characters for my new sci-fi comic, since I don't know if they'll make their way to the comic I'm posting them here.
The first one on the left is a villain inspired by Kirby's ones he has no name so I'm calling him Kirbo.
The curly girl is Virtua Mondo, I like her a lot thus she may be redesigned a little bit and make it as a double crossing agent and a love interest for the main character.
Last one is some sort of warlock/counsellor for the enemy mob.

I'll start working on a new short comic these days, it's a story that's been sitting in my drawer for a while and I want to pick it up before focusing on the sci-fi comic, so updates soon.
Stay tuned!

First page off Heroism Potion, a short black and white comic made last summer.

I'm working on a new comic for an upcoming magazine so I'm pretty busy with it. It's a sci-fi story set in a more futuristic ZZZ age. I'm pretty excited about it since it's going to be my first longer comic.
As soon as I can find some more spare time I'll be making some new illustrations that have been floating in my mind for a while.
Stay tuned!

Wednesday, 21 March 2012

Hey, sorry for the prolonged absence of updates.
I'm really busy with commission work and other stuff lately, so I really haven't much time to draw anything else. I should be this busy for two more weeks, then I hope I'll be able to resume drawing and everything else.
 In the meantime you can check my comics in the Detrocboi booklet and in the brand new Lodaçal Comix 5.


Talk soon.
