Two more pages of my military project. The two guys are resting and talking...boring boards, sorry;)
Hope you like

I saw your previous pages, and didn't get a chance to say anything, but I've got to tell you that I'm really blown away by your stuff. Even on these "boring pages" with the two guys just talking, your use of body language and varied angles keeps things interesting even without the dialogue added. Very impressive work!

Yes, these are utterly awesome.

ya know, i find talking pages actually intersting to do, they're a challenge. it's hard to come up with different angles to keep things looking intersting.
awesome pages as always.

Very Very Great!
Not BORING....I think that editors will be most impressed with how an artist handles so-called "boring" pages.
One Comment- Personal Preference---When drawing the brick pattern like you have on the exposed wall....I like to draw only a few of the lines to give the impression of the entire brick wall...This will always work when the wall is in the distance....But I guess the wall here is kinda close so you would see every line in the pattern...Like I said Personal Preference...What you did is just fine....!

Only real thing I see, is that the fanblades in the last panel aren't the same size. I'd extend that blade that runs along the panel border at the top, further to the left.
But damn man, that's some nice drawing, and storytelling. European stuff isn't typically my thing, but I have to acknowledge sheer talent when I see it.

Fantastic stuff Simone!

Thanks to all of you guys!
Sam: Italian comics have less action scene than American ones in them, so drawing "normal people sequential" is something really common.
Chynco: You're right, it's a challenge and a good exercise for camera angle use and to improve your creativity
CWmax: Editors in Italy pay a lot of attention about realistic details like cars, weapon, dress folds etc.. and the same for characters normal "body language". Thanks for the tip
FF: thanks for the fanblades input I already correct them. Thanks for the kind words too
Cuddly: Yesterday I saw the first page inked...and I have to say the inker is doing a fantastic work on them. The only regret I have I didn't have the possibility to fix all the issue you guys raised up in my past threads, because the publisher is really concerned about the timeline and wanted give already the boards drew until now to the inker...:(

The character's expressions seem a little bland, and the first page is screaming for an overhead shot, but these are solid pages. Don't beat yourself up. It's the "quiet" pages that give the dramatic pages more impact. Great work.
