Comic will be published weekly early next year and I am quite proud of the result. Diego’s pencils, had an unique taste and it’s way better for me to ink digitally.
The Monster Men, the weekly webcomic inked by yours truly is featured in this month’s issue of Alter Ego, the Fanzine specialized in Golden age comics edited by comic book writer and legend Roy Thomas for TwoMorrows Publishing, a specialized publisher that focuses on the comic book art with their top artists monographic books. (Actually I have the book they wrote about Image Comics).
Alter Ego is a big name in the field of comics magazine, it was nominated for an Eagle Award for Favourite Magazine About Comics, and won the Eisner Award for Best Comics-Related Periodical/Publication, according to their Wikipedia Entry.

Well… After a year and a half since I devoted myself to inks I have gained several experience and meet tremendous people. I think I can post my page rates now that I am becoming more confident over my work. Still I have hundreds of pages of learning, but I love this thing.
I ink traditionally. I like to use hunt 102 quills and brushes. I also ink with Manga Studio, according to the penciler’s needs.
I am more focused on mainstream comics with a level of professionalism. I love good pages BUT I also love regular timmings. Doing one page per week I think does not helps anyone.
So, here they are:
– Inked sequentials: 50 USD PER PAGE It does not depends on the complexity or lack of detail, Actually i love details and pages that are more complex are like a challenge to me. Here are some examples:
My method: I ink and send lo-res pages for comments. 6 at the time. (1-6; 7-12, etc…) That’s is like my inking speed per week.
Once every group of pages are approved, I send hi-res pages files after payment via Pay Pal.
If you want a closer communication, we can Gtalk or evaluate the project via email. I’m reachable at Cristian.firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, can’t wait to find more from you and your projects!
Inking rocks, remember!
