Clearing something up.

Just read something about Digmaan:

"And thus we find ourselves in this situation. Filipinos who are capable of doing worthy comics are not doing webcomics or are doing them halfheartedly. The majority who do comics on the web simply do not have the talent to create something worthwhile.

Gilbert Monsanto, an established professional, gives us Digmaan, a fanciful exercise in super heroics. A quintessential superhero artist, his webcomics fall short of the quality he is capable of providing. He has demonstrated that he is fully capable of solid meticulous illustration when he wants to, and yet he considers it unnecessary to apply the same to his webcomics."

First, I would like to thank you for mentioning my fanfiction webcomic on your site. Thank you sir.

I just want to clarify something to Mr. Osorio, Digmaan is not meant to be done in its full version at all. It was never my intention for this story to be done and geared up to be just a webcomic. In fact all you see here are unfinished pages, most are not inked. I do this intentionally for several reasons. To make it clear that I have no intentions to get this comic pages in print, , most of the characters included here are owned by their respective creators. It will be a miracle if one day, I'll be able to get permission from all of them in order for me to use all of the characters and produce the actual Graphic Novel of DIGMAAN, 300 pages all in all. Another reason is to prevent piracy, I don't think they can print these low resolution images, and if they do. It will not the be the final cut nor a sellable image. I am focusing more on the story itself, keeping it locked inside my brain hurts, this is sort of a release mechanism for me. I thank the web for that.

I am content that I am now able to show and even remind more and moe people of the richness of our local komiks when it comes to having these fantastic characters that inspired me to do what I do today.

Digmaan in print will be the real dream come true for me. I just hope that the glimpse of that reality is enough for my readers, for now. Sorry to disappoint, but hey at least it's fun and free of charge.

I am currently doing a promotional image, I'll do this one in it's complete version. They'll appear the way I would want the book to look, if it ever get published.

Hope that clears up everything.

huge DIGMAAN art WIP

Started doing this promotional image for DIGMAAN. I'm hoping to finish up to four 17x11 illustration before the coming KOMIKON 2007. This is my tribute to all our local Superheroes ever made for every Pinoy Komiks reader. :)
I think doing the line art is not going to be a problem for me, although coloring them will be a tidious task. Wish me luck hehe.
