Dog Eaters


The Roaches positions have been zeroed

Chunga leads the Black Dog Clan in a counter-attack against the Roaches. Tommy readies his rifle. He’s a dead shot with any weapon.

The Roaches have Bevan pinned and are on the verge of finishing him off.

The first 16 images of the iPad/iPhone app for Dog Eaters will be comprised of color with the inks, making the blacks, definitely black. Inks were made for Issue #0, which is comprised of 16 pages. You can dowload Issue #0 for free from the left sidebar.

Color Tests and Pages

Lamont Studies This was a color test that applied color to the ink & toned page. While it has an interesting look, the toned vehicles seemed to be a apart from the background, like the vehicles had been pasted onto a background.

Here is a different color treatment on the same pencil drawing. Color makes a difference, doesn’t it!

It’s interesting to see how much a difference color makes. On the right, the toned and inked page you can find in the Preview Issue #0.

This time, the toned and inked page from the Preview Issue #0, is on the left.

This is the casino scene in Three Palms from Issue 2
