View Full Version : It's over

I finally finished to draw all the military project 26 boards!
These are the last 3 boards...they already are in the inker hands.
In the last two boards you can see the guy is left-handed...I completely forgot it so I drew the 2 boards with the guy holding the gun with the right-hand...when the publisher saw them he asked me to flip every panels, that's because the shot panel is from righ to left...

The book will be published at the end of October in Italy by a very small publisher
Hope you like

Very nice storytelling. Great job, Caimano.

Great stuff man, as always. I hope you have sent this complete book over to Marvel and DC. I could see you doing a Punisher series. Yes I could. You've got a Doug Braithwaite look going. Did you go out and take 360 degree pictures of some of the trees you have in the pages? They all seem to look right from panel to panel.
Only one crit. Page 3, Pnl 2. The gun position just looks non threatening. A fully extended arm would have been more menacing, especially a down the barrel shot.

Gorgeous pages, Caimano.
Truly gorgeous. And I don't give such a compliment that easily.
I think part of the reason why I like your art is that my style's pretty similar to yours: (very) realistic, much shadowing,..

Cool art as usual,
take it up and
hope to see you in the italianís con;onei;

Simone, Excellent work all the way through the book. It must have been tough getting all those pages done with a reletively new baby in your life. Good work and good luck.

Really nice work, yep I could see you doing Punisher too.
The only thing I really noticed that looked off was on the last page panel 2, the hand holding the gun does not look like its gripping the gun properly.

Oooo i love the STUFF thing, LOL.

Thanks guys I really appreciated your feedback.
Eddy: Thanks...coming from the moderator king...really thanks
Justice: No I'm not going to send it to any big company like Marvel or DC because I sent them my work in the past, but they just check their character submission...no others. I have Dark Horse in my sending list because they should accept this kind of submission.
Thanks a lot for the Doug Braithwaite comparison, because I really like his art...he's 3 years younger then me ( and one million light years better) and believe it or not it seems we had the same artistic influences (Al Williamson, John Buscema, Gil Kane etc..).
I agree about the blend arm pointing the gun...I keep it in mind
Ra: Thanks pal, yes our style are similar and I don't know if it's because we're both from Europe...I really like drawing shadows.
M@U: I hope to meet you at the con too...so you can tell me more about your project!
Jeremy: you're right...not easy to have spare time to draw with a new baby in your life....the secret is to share your life with a wonderful woman as a wife! I got back to PJ after about a month of absence and I saw you're inking CG samples. Are you trying to break as an inker?
Hipercriticalbeast: Thanks for the feedback...I was really scared first time I read your nickname

as usual, some sweet, sweet work from you. Crystal clear storytelling, gorgeous artwork. Very pro, my man. That hand drawing in Pg1Pn4 is fantastic. I have only two real regrets looking at this post:
1) I probably will never see the finished book on any bookshelf I can get to
2) We won't get to see any more new artwork from you on this particular story
On the other hand, I'm really looking forward to seeing what your next project will be. ;)
But in the meantime, rest that drawing hand, brother - you seriously deserve it.
PS: Show us the inked versions if you can. I'd be interested to see if the inker does your pencils justice.

Hi Cuddly, thanks for your kind words...too kind!
The project is finished, but I'm not going to stop posting my future works on PJ! :D

Simone, I'm still in the final stages of a project I'm penciling, inking and lettering, but my pencils just aren't up to snuff, in my opinion. I'm considering dropping the penciling chores and focusing on my inks. I'll be submitting and showing inks at cons over the next few months so I hope that will get me some work. It's a tough time to break in, but with some luck and persistence we all stand a chance.
As an inker, your pages would be great to work over. You have good clean lines, well defined volumes and well spotted blacks. Good job.
You mentioned sending this to Dark Horse. Have you heard about their New Recruits program? I think your book would be a great fit, especially if it's only one issue. Here's a link to the site if you want more info. http://www.darkhorse.com/newrecruits.html
P.S. I've got one of those wonderful wives, too. She let's me stay home and take care of our son all day and she gives me time to draw when she gets home from work. It's a hard life, but I manage. ;)

Always a pleasure seeing your work dude, super solid stuff and I too am intrigued to see what you'll turn your hand to next!
Hope ya submissions pay off big time:)
That looks really awesome!

Page 2 Panel 2 - Why's his head cropped and his body so prominent? Takes the focus off the gun, in my opinion.
Page 3 Panel 4 - Screen direction gets reversed here and it jarred me a bit.
Other than that... super work.

Oh yeah--this is great work! Take it easy on the backgrounds though. In some places it distracts from the action taking place. On the second panel of the last page, for example. The tree behind the figure takes your eyes away from the guy and the gun, which are the true focal points. Sometimes, it's just a good idea to skip background detail, if in doing so it helps clarify story elements. :cool: Good stuff, dude!
