From pencils to colours: The Resurrected artistic process

We finally have the chance to reveal some art process shots for our comic book series ‘The Resurrected,‘ pencilled and inked by artist Crizam Zamora, coloured by Salvatore Aiala and written by myself, Christian Carnouche.

Check out our logline if you want to know what the series is all about:

We’ve isolated one panel to illustrate the process from the very first pencil outlines (which are quite detailed compared to what a lot of other artists provide for their outlines), to the inking – where these outlines are fleshed out, and finally to the colours. This panel won’t be complete until the dialogue/narration bubbles are added by our letterer.

It is quite common in comics that changes are made during the artistic process, as you can see with this panel. In the pencilled page, the imprisoned Indigenous are standing in front of some trees, while – for the sake of clarifying the story’s chronology, we decided to replace this background in the inked page with a prison.

I know I’m a little biased but I’m absolutely stoked with the magic Criz and Sal have weaved into this panel, and the rest of the story for that matter.

 

Introducing Salvatore Aiala: the colourist for ‘The Resurrected’

I’m very excited to finally introduce Salvatore Aiala, the colourist for The Resurrected comic book series.

Salvatore is a regular artist for Dynamite and has worked on popular titles like Z Nation (adapted from the hit television show), James Bond: Felix Leiter, Swords of Sorrow: Black Sparrow & Lady Zorro Special. Check out Salvatore’s Comic Book Database profile if you’d like to see the rest of his titles:

The Resurrected is actually reuniting Salvatore with our penciller/inker Crizam Zamora, who both worked on the hit comic Swords of Sorrow: Black Sparrow & Lady Zorro Special.

If you’ve missed our previous posts, here are a couple examples of Salvatore’s and Crizam’s work for our current series:

The below panels have been randomly selected from some of our beautiful pages at various points in the first issue; pencilled and inked by artist Crizam Zamora and coloured by Salvatore Aiala, who we’ll formally introduce very soon. Obviously I’m working with some extremely talented and experienced artists…The pages are still be lettered with narration and dialogue.

This first screenshot is of two panels of the second page, which is basically an introduction to the story’s overall theme. Yes we’ve adopted the not so subtle sledgehammer approach to the theme….

The below panel takes place pretty much just as the action takes off. Hope you all enjoyed these previews! What the hell is happening in this panel? Well don’t ask me! I”m just the writer!
