Khem and Eleonora Carlini

In January will be published the Captain Action Winter Special, drawn by me an Eduardo Barreto.
My story is another solo tale of Kehm, Action Boy's partner.
This is my second story about her (you can find the first on Captan Action Special #1), wrote again by Joe Gentile.
What made this story more special is the fact that it is coloured by Eleonora Carlini, and Italian artist (she is not just a colorist) which i found with the help of David Messina.

Once finished this story we'll work again on a 30 pages Moonstone Books one-shot, and i hope this will be just the beginning of our collaboration.
I say so because obviously she is very good in her work...

This is a preview of that story, don't miss the book!

G.I.Joe Infestation

The 2 Infestation books about the G.I.Joe are officialy finished!
They will be both released in March (but the Infestation event will begin in January, here the description of it).

The 2 books come out very well, i'm really satisfied, and is so even the editors and the writer.
The writer is Mike Raicht (Army of Darkness, Marvel Age, The Stuff of Legend, etc.) and we found that we have worked very well together, i'm pretty sure we will do again in the 2011!

Below you'll be able to see the 2 covers of the G.I.Joe Infestation books, in both version.

Dead Corpses teaser on-line!

Teaser on line!

(For first i suggest you to watch it directly on the youtube page, don't ask me why but it slow down watching it into my blog page, maybe because of the Deviantart badge next to this?)

It's done with independent filmaker Giacomo Becherini and as written this is just a "teaser", made also to test the possibility to animate parts of my art.
Soon we'll start to work on a more long trailer, full of action (and flying bullets), i hope you'll enjoy this one.

Dead Corpses: "Making of" the cover

I have decided to do a "making of" the cover of my personal project Dead Corpses:

Step 1: the perspective.
Before to draw the sketch itself i was doubtful about the perspective to use in it.
So i have done this 2 tries.
(the one on the right have won)

step 2, the sketch:
After decided which perspective was the better i have done the sketch itself.
The 2 characters rounded by armed people, a simple idea that suit perfectly with the soul of the book.

step 3, the pencils:

step 4, the inks:

step 5, the colours:
I have tried to not use shining colours, considering that the book is in grey tones i have not wanted to go too much far from that atmosphere.
I hope you'll like it.

step 6, title, credits etc.:
There is no publisher logo, price etc. 'cause my project desn't have them yet.
I hope you'll like my Dead Corpses logo.
