Some of the titles I´ve worked in these years.Huge number of pages and some cool covers.
Through the years I colored many types ofpages: quick panels with cutting shadows with hardstudy of color palette, intrincate splash pages fullof characters trying to separate all levels or pageswith hand painting style of color, last ones are myfavorites. This profession has allowed me to makecontact with editors from USA, France, UK, Hollandand Spain, always trying to achieve a strikingpages respecting deadlines.Sometimes it is not easy, you know…I like dealing with the atmosphere of ahuge battle between heaven and hell, make reala duel between sword ﬁghters for the love of awoman in the France of Louis XIII, work in a comicabout police investigation in nowadays cities orinvent a cinematic atmosphere for rogue vampiressearching a dangerous sorcerer. I’ve also movedthe light of tv series and movies to the pages andI´ve been lucky to be able to give a personal touchto some histories starting from sketches. At last I´vebeen responsible of a large number of covers,trying to catch the reader’s attention in the store.Now I want to introduce you a sample bookwith some of all those pages, those responsibilitiesand opportunities. This is my job now and I wantto keep learning. The profession has trained meto calculate the dates, organize myself and tryto give each story a different point, working withcolors not as a mere accessory, but integrating itinto the development of the story.I have the luck of having a partner, J.C.Ruíz. He even has more experience than me inlettering and color separation. He has worked forpublishers like Marvel, Mohawk Media, Aleta orRecerca, to name a few. We can both commit todeliver full pages. We are a team with over 11years experience and we still have passion aboutour career.After viewing these pages I hope we canwork together soon. -Fran Gamboa.
