Process: El Muerto


Imagine that your own comic creation gets turned into a movie. That’s exactly what happened with El Muerto, created by my pal Javier Hernandez. El Muerto, also known as the Aztec Zombie, was debuted on the screen in 2007, and starred Wilmer Valderrama. The film went on to win the Best Feature Film award at the first annual Whittier Film Festival in 2008.

Here’s my take on Javier’s character.

Here’s the fills, which I keep on a separate layer under my Inks layer.

And, here’s the final, with a splash of red thrown in as an accent color.
