A New Beginning...

Zorro #15 page 1

Hello my friends,

here's page 1 of my new arc on Zorro. This time around I am taking care of the colors as well so I hope you dig the final result. (above)
Below some of the steps of the making of this page.
Issue #15 (first of my new arc) should be out later this month.

Cheers,
Francesco

Really excited about this, Francesco. I always like when you color your own work, and I'm always happy to see you drawing Zorro.

I may have to check it back out. I wasn't a big fan of the painted coloring over the artwork which I feel obliterates much of the penciler's style. 'Course I hadn't really liked the drawn out decompressed storytelling and quickly grew bored with the story.

Evan: thank you :D And have fun in CHicago, my friend :)
Cash: I am definitely inviting you to check the third arc out: it has been pretty entertaining for me to draw and I am sure Matt's tales plus my new approach on the art (inks/color) will make this a fun ride for everyone :)
Stay tuned for some more sneak peek as we get closer to the release.

Cheers,
Francesco

I just found your blog while searching images of Edgar Allen Poe. Your work is amazing and this is a beautifully illustrated page. I'm definitely a fan.
