Cryptics sequential preview by FabianMonk Cryptics sequential preview by FabianMonk
So here's a preview of some of the sequentials that you'll be seeing inside The Cryptics comic (for more info click here) if you decide to pick it up! I won't be coloring the entire book, but I am on a 7 page short story. Backgrounds made in Painter, character colors in Photoshop.

Pencils/Inks: Ben Roman
Colors: Me(Monk)

Cheers!

man, this really cool. I want to read more! your colors make it so vibrant, and it adds a level of happiness to it, I mean it looks like a cartoon! really good work guys. (I think the secret to the future of comic books to reach a younger artist, and I think that if you guys continue to work in this way, we'll see a very good future. Where as other artist seek their own glory, which isn't bad, but its future focused. Well done.}

the colours look great.
just a suggestion though, try seeing what this would look like with white gutters, it just feels too.. enclosed with the black ones.

As far as I understood it, a border will be added around each page in post-production.
Thanks for the compliment!

Totally unfair, you're used to full book treatments à la Crabtree anyways!
Tell me what you think of the book though if you pick it up! I'd definitely be interested to hear your thoughts!

Snazzy! The fluidness of each panel looks like it's been ripped right out of an animation, it's so lively and vibrant.
