To Marcus by MarcelPerez To Marcus by MarcelPerez
This is my little homage to my good friend :iconnickalmand:, writer of Sons Of Nowhere and many others, who passed away. I spent the whole day feeling kind of a void and today I decided I needed to make at least a little tribute to him.

I'll miss a lot talking to him, and working with him too, since I adored his ideas as a writer. We had many plans ahead of us to work together, and I feel a little artistically "orphan", as I felt some years ago with another great friend whom I learned to draw together with.

An awesome person and writer, I would have loved that he would have lived to see his first published comic, Orphan Blade, printed... and it was almost finished.

I'll never forget him, and from now on, I know that, whenever I'm trying to write a comic, I'll be thinking "Would Marcus like that?".

So long, friend.


----------------------------


Ayer, un gran amigo, Marcus (conocido como :iconnickalmand: ) por las redes), guionista de Sons Of Nowhere y varias otras, tristemente falleció. Estuve todo el día de ayer sintiéndome con un gran vacío y hoy he decidido que al menos necesitaba hacerle un pequeño homenaje.

Echaré mucho de menos hablar con él, y trabajar con él, ya que adoraba sus ideas como guionista, y estábamos planeando un montón de cosas que podríamos haber hecho. Me siento algo "huérfano" artísticamente, como ya me pasó hace unos años con otra persona con la que había aprendido a dibujar codo con codo.

Una persona genial y un buenísimo guionista, me habría gustado que al menos viera su primer cómic editado, Orphan Blade, que ya estaba casi a punto.

Nunca le olvidaré, y a partir de ahora, sé que cuando intente escribir un cómic, siempre pensaré "le gustaría esto a Marcus?".

Hasta siempre, amigo.

I am... very intrigued by your lines... what did you use??? they're so smooth, characteristic, and has a lot of soul...
the watercolor technique is also amazing and superb... simply beautiful!!!

what did you use to put this on computer? I've tried using scanner for my watercolor but it doesn't turn the way I want it...

Sorry for the big delay in answering ^^U
I used a brush for that, actually.
It's scanned as tyou say, but over the years I learned many good tricks to improve the way the computers scans the watercolor pics...

Oh well, things such as touching the brithness and contrat, the saturation of the colors, improving the blacks and the whites, the intensitiy of the colors... many different things that a scanning can "kill" xD

Yeah, I have a pen with a brush tip that is great for fluid inking! It's from a brand called PENTEL.

Oh, God. He died? I just.....I was just totally left out of the loop on that, and now that I know....

Oh, man. I am so sorry. I know that you guys were going to be working on a lot together, too. :(

I just hope that his memory will go on strong, and that his work will remain steadfast.

I feel honored to see you do something of this kind of personal caliber and being courageous enough to share it. Thank you.

Yeah, we were... it has been sad news on so many levels, for me... both personally and profesionally, I lost a great partner and friend.

To me it was important that this peace of work in particular reached the people that followed him, on the internet, too... so no worries :)

Well, hey. I'm just as glad that this was able to reach other people, as well; there was so much to come, and it ended all too soon.

I just hope things are going alright for all of you guys who were there alongside him. We still as much time as we can be allowed.
