Hello everyone. This is a panel from the currently in progress Wrestler Zero story. It didn't occur to me as I was inking this panel that I'm an admirer of the "Filipino school" of art. I grew up reading many of the Marvel black and white magazines where the work of Alfredo Alcala, Rudy Nebres and Tony DeZuniga was featured. I'M NOT TRYING TO COMPARE MYSELF IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM TO THESE ARTISTS. In looking at the posted panel here all of the cross hatching and shading was definitely influenced in some way by these terrific artists. Do yourself a favor the next time you're in a well stocked comic book shop and expose yourself to these great artists from the Phillipines. This panel was inked with a Hunt 102 pen, Micron .005 and .01 pens and Pitt brush pens. My ink is Dr. Martin's Bombay black. Take care out there.

A very belated Happy New Year to all of you. I hope this new year finds you in good health and in fine spirit. I've been absent from this blog but not from creating. I work a full time blue collar job and I'm a single father as well as a nascent self publisher. Time management is a must for me. This is a page from my latest WRESTLER ZERO story. As I've said previously this is a shorter story than the one in the first issue and will be posted here in it's entirety. I always feel invigorated at the start of each new year. I hope to take a drawing class this year in my never ending attempt to improve my drawing. Thanks for stopping by. And a special thanks to my friends in Latin America: Saludos a mis seguidores en LatinoAmerica. Les deseo un feliz y prospero ano nuevo y les agradesco sus comentarios y apollo.
