Digital "zip" or the real thing?
Gene DeCicco - Over 30 days ago
Digital. But the goal was to make it look just like the old school version, which I have used when I was in high school and collage.
But with the software program Manga Studio 5ex now called Clip Studio Paint, its so easy as a technique there is no reason to use the "real thing". Ever since I got it I will never go back. Even compared to Photoshop.

The creative and aesthetic aspects of the application are all still time consuming, but if you lay some down and it doesn't work you just do it over and there's no glue to peel off haha..
Al Sirois - Over 30 days ago
I hear ya. I use Photoshop and have designed a digital method for Zip -- used to use the real thing, too. Have heard of Manga Studio, but I'm so used to PS at this point (more than 20 years using the thing) that it would be pointless to switch.

I really dig your stylized take with pushing the anatomy here. Very cool rendition of one of my favorite Marvel characters.
Gene DeCicco - Over 30 days ago
Thanks Ryan so much man. I worked for Marvel for a little while a long time ago... and I always wanted to do an elongated still standing Silver Surfer.... he doesn't need the gestures of an actual man surfing... he is not a man, he is an alien... let's have some fun with him. :)
Ryan Bell - Over 30 days ago
No problem Gene, and that is what makes the piece amazing. That's really cool that you did some work for Marvel. You have got the gift for it. What type of work did you do with Marvel? Any issues in particular? A buddy of mine just did a color job for one of the last few issues of FF4, he did the variant. I think issue 544.
Gene DeCicco - Over 30 days ago
Hey Ryan,

I worked for Marvel a long time ago. I did a couple of issues for their 2099 line of books. The Hooligan and Haphazard were new characters they were trying out and I did the first appearances of them.
I worked in the offices too... but then they went bankrupt and things changed. A lot of people were let go. I had left right before to do a comic for Motown Records with Image Comics who were putting out a comic called Man Against Time. I did the first three issues of that.
Thanks so much.
Ryan Bell - Over 30 days ago
Cool. I will check them all out. I loved the 2099 run. Thanks for sharing.
Gene DeCicco - Over 30 days ago
My pleasure Ryan.

Great to meet you.

Gene

really cool, Love the pose, also love the black flecks in the rays, makes it look even more "cosmic" I also liked the 2099 archs, Great stuff, and everything at marvel seemed better before that bankrupt thing. LOL.
