Comic book story written by André Oliveira, illustrated by André Caetano and published in Café Espacial magazine number 12.
Published:
I was invited by Sérgio Chaves to participate in the 12th edition of Café Espacial, a brazillian comics magazine.
I invited my talented friend 
André Oliveira to write the story.

This number was selected for the Prix de la Bd Alternative, a prize for alternative comics in the Angoulême Comic book Festival.

Process
After reading the script by André Oliveira, i drew all the story in thumbnails.
Below are the pages nº3 and nº4.
Thumbnails for pages 3 and 4.
I start the final pencils having the thumbail as a guide, but not a definitive layout. I like to always have some room to change things as i draw.
Pencils for page nº4
I ink the page with a Winsor & Newton sable brush for almost everything, except for the panels outline, using a Copic Multiliner 0.7. After that, i erase the pencils and scan it.
If needed i correct things in the computer, and also add the greytones in this case.

 
Inks for page nº4
The magazine size is 14 x 21 cm and the originals are A3 (29.7 x 42cm)
