Musketeers page3 by RudyVasquez Musketeers page3 by RudyVasquez
Here's page 3. Looking at these again, I could have done a million things better. I was so caught up in reference, my story telling got jipped.

I know these are rather old pieces, but I'm re-reading the novel right now so I felt like checking them out again and saying these kick ass, my friend!

Oh, and yeah, the worst thing about drawing historic (sp? you know what I mean) stuff is the amount of reference it takes. I mean, I'm drawing a western right now and I keep going back and forth to my computer to check some damn stupid detail. I should get a printer...

Yeah, I've seen your western pages, really good stuff. I know horses are a pain in the ass too. Thanks Vic.

lol-Nothing fancy let me tell you. I exclusively use BIC Grip 0.7 mm #2 tech pencils. Sounds more complicated than they are. They're just tech pencils you can pick up at any Wal-Mart. Thanks for asking.

rudy in all honesty, i agree, there are things you could have done better. not millions, but a couple.
HOWEVER....
your worst, would be some of marvels best when it pertains to the art i have seen from marvel from the past few years to now. i think they wanted a more flashy style, but there is no way that you can go there with a classic story like that. it needs to be given its due. its like having joe mad drawing moby dick...wrong artist :)
i checked out the other two test pages and i give you much respect for them, they are the best by far. im more of an animal/abstract artist myself and looking at your horse, i think you did real well with the musculature. did you pause the dvd? or did you have a stock photo? just curious.
i think you presented the story in the proper way man.

its been a while bro. been house hunting :) i will be contacting you fairly soon about couple of pieces. until then, be cool man.

I've looked at the sequence and I get what you mean, how the storytelling doesn't fit together (Establishing who the good guys are and who are bad and a plausible reason why they started indoors and then flipped outside), but your pages are really visual treats. You showed a bit too much leg anatomy in panel 1 of this page and two (Especially since they're clothed and historically, these guys were faaaaat), but that's a minor annoyance...it's irrelevant unless you're aiming for Aspen Studios; they tend to incorporate anatomy anywhere. Before I forget, try adding a bit more fat to the hands you draw, Rudy. They seem a bit flat upon closer inspection (panels 3, 4 and 6).
A couple of observations made in...10 minutes, I guess.

Sweet pages!

Hey if Marvel 'went another direction' - who's to stop you from producing your own work regarding the Musketeers. Marvel can't copywrite a known tale. Just tell the story how you see it and design it. ;-)

That is, if you are into the story and have the spare time. You never know - your interpretation could always be favored amung readers compaired to Marvels' version.

LOL-Wow, you do have great ambitions! I would love to, but I'd have to NOT use Roy Thomas' script, rewrite my version and find a way to finance it. I wish I had the spare time and money to do it though.

:iconpsychomud:
psychomud Featured By Owner May 8, 2007
Oh yeah! Money is always the big problem. Spare time is a close second. At the speed I draw - I can't keep up with my ideas. I have like 10 "wouldn't it be cool to draw ______ as/vs/staring ____ " - ideas a day - easy. ;-) Course when you work with other comic book fans - thats usually the primary topic at some point during the day. ;-)

If I had your talent - when ever I get ahead of deadlines, I'd work on side projects. Never know then that 'big day' will come were a movie producer or publisher will pay TONS of cash for a 'fresh take' on and 'old story'. ;-)

Maybe - just maybe - you will become one of the mega-star artists and people will fork over cash for ANYTHING you put out - then when you dig up side projects and ride the cash/fame wave until the next 'hot talent' comes along. Right? ;-)

Maybe its just my opinion, but back when Image was starting out - some of those guys could draw a turd and people would buy up as many copys as they could - hahahah!

Ahhhh - the golden days of comic collectable value speculation! ;-)

Dude! That's what's fun but so draining. I have to research by any means. DVD's, videos, i-net, books, ect. All for the time period. A period project can easily start to feel like a school project. I learned a lot though and grew to love and appreciate the story in it's classic form.
