EL TIGRE es muy magnífico!

I was at Comic-Con this year and I didn't even know it.

Well, sort of: Turns out Nickelodeon made some special EL TIGRE posters that used one of my very first drawings for the show; I didn't find out about it until I saw one up on eBay! Here's a breakdown of the process:

Going off the original board by Dave Thomas,
I did my usual Post-It note rough:

Once I had that figured out, I did a tighter pass....

(The shadow tones I added just for this post....
'cause I go the extra mile for you guys.)

Here's the final result, after some fixes by Gabe Swarr, inks by Su Moon, and final color & paint by the man himself, Jorge Gutierrez:

man you've got to post this shiz on your flickr! because every time I miss out on your work, a little piece of me dies. or at least takes a year off college and never ends up signing up for classes again.

or I could just come here too I guess.

Chris Battle said...

Spacesick- I try to post different things on the Blog and the Flickr.... ya gotta drop by both to catch all the action, man! :)

Rest assured tho, most everything will eventually be on both.
