TONAMELT DP #01 Inside Front Cover. by alexcruz
TONAMELT DP #01 Inside Front Cover.
The final design of the inside cover for the expected comic TONAMELT The Dark Protector # 1 One-Shot: Weapons of War. With its silver platter showing the names of creative team to do it (still in negotiations); The presentation line of the narrator to our avenging watchman; The TONAMELT ode to Mexico City that reflects their mentality and commitment in a thought cloud; the drawing tribute to David Mazzuchelli, the legendary artist of the Year One mini-series that Frank Miller wrote, a work that made into me to be a comic fan in plan more serious and later seeing more great works of the genre made me think: Why not make a Mexican masked superhero in the genre of the vigilantes?; and classical litany of information on the publication magazine that is placed on the bottom... mmm. There are many styles of typography for dialogue balloons, clouds of thoughts and text boxes of narrator in the narrative of comics. But the truth I'd like to design and code the letter of my writing to be the type of font that should be used for lines of my comics.

Very soon, very soon, already they are lining up slowly all the stars to publish this highly anticipated (and delayed) comic in one of our two dates: April 30 or October 30. (But of what year??? lol) The comic has to have a very good level of plot, visual quality and business if we put it in the publishing market of Comic USA as another comic in the Previews catalog of Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc...  and then see if we earn a nomination for Will Eisner Award for Best Comic shortlist for Best One-Shot. A nomination for Will Eisner Award would be very helpful for our mini-series of Dark Protector, help us a lot to win enough prestigeto win licensing agreements publishing for our comic book in other markets publishing superhero comics. These publication contracts with publishing houses in other countries of America, Europe + other distant publishers markets such as Australia and India would be the most important gains for our publications beyond of break even in the publishing market of Mexico and the USA.

TONAMELT DP #01 Portada Frontal Interior. by alexcruz
TONAMELT DP #01 Portada Frontal Interior.

El diseño final de la portada interior para el esperado comic TONAMELT El Protector Oscuro #1 One-Shot: Armas de Guerra. Con su charola de plata que muestra los nombres del equipo que va a realizarlo (seguimos en negociaciones); La línea de presentación del narrador hacia nuestro vigilante justiciero; La oda de TONAMELT a la Ciudad de México que refleja su mentalidad y compromiso en una nube de pensamiento; el dibujo homenaje a David Mazzuchelli, el mítico artista de la mini-serie Year One que escribió Frank Miller, obra que hizo que me metiera a ser un comic fan en plan mas serio y que después viendo mas geniales obras del genero me hizo preguntarme: ¿Porque no hacer un superhéroe Mexicano enmascarado en el genero de los vigilantes justicieros?; y la clásica letanía de la información de la publicación de la revista que se pone en la parte de abajo...mmm. Hay muchos tipos de fuente muy buenas para los globos de dialogo, nubes de pensamientos y cuadros de textos del narrador en los cómics. Pero la verdad a mi me gustaría diseñar y codificar la letra de mi escritura para que sea el tipo de fuente que se debe de usar para las líneas de mis cómics.

Por el va y vienes de la economía nos descapitalizamos un poco de la inversión de $380 mil pesos-mx que se necesitan para echar a andar la producción de uno solo de los cómics (el primero) de 64 paginas one-shot de esta mini-serie TONAMELT El Protector Oscuro calculada a 24 números de publicación semestral... Es un poco cansante este compás de espera para que todas las estrellas se alineen: cumplir con el pago de sueldos del equipo creativo; tener el capital para cubrir los costos del taller de impresión; construir una red de puntos de venta en las 50 ciudades primarias y 50 ciudades secundarias en toda la Republica Mexicana; hacer un buen acuerdo de distribución con SEPOMEX calculado la proporción de pedidos de envios segun los paquetes de ventas por mayoreo de 20, 30, 50, 100, 500 copias y el paquete entrega especial de 1000 ó 2000 copias; todo el material que se necesita para hacer todo el embalaje de envolturas para toda la paquetería; rentar una casa en la CD-MX (antes DFectuso) para que sea el centro logístico de toda la distribución; la negociación de un posible acuerdo con las agencias de publicidad para hacer una publicación gratuita del 70% del comic (panel por panel) con un display de anuncios publicitarios entre cada acto... Tenemos que hacer bien los calculos para vender todas las 15 mil copias + un excedente de mil copias mas para convenciones y exposiciones. No es rentable que nos quedemos con miles de comics embodegados por no hacer un buen calculo de ventas en la logistica de una distribucion rapida para nuestra red de puntos de ventas.

Very pronto, very pronto, ya se están alineando poco a poco todas las estrellas para publicar este comic tan esperado (y retrasado) en alguna de nuestras dos fechas: 30 de Abril ó 30 de Octubre. (pero de que año??? jajaja) El comic tiene que tener un muy buen nivel de calidad argumental, visual y empresarial si queremos meterlo en el mercado de publicación del Comic USA como otro comic mas en el catalogo Previews de Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc… y después ver si nos ganamos una nominación al Will Eisner Award en la terna de mejor Best Comic One-Shot. Una nominación a los Will Eisner Award seria de gran ayuda para la mini-serie de nuestro Protector Oscuro, nos ayudaría mucho en ganar el prestigio suficiente para ganar contratos de licencias de publicación de nuestros cómics en otros mercados editoriales de publicación de cómics de superhéroes. Estos contratos de publicación en países del resto de America, Europa + otros mercados editoriales distantes como el de Australia y la India, seria las ganancias mas importantes para nuestra publicación mas allá salir tablas en el mercado editorial de México y los USA.

Here Comes TONAMELT The Dark Protector #1 DEMO cov by alexcruz
Here Comes TONAMELT The Dark Protector #1 DEMO cov
The English version of the cover of the expected number # 1 one-shot of our Dark Protector for the Market of Comic USA,  we expect to see soon this comic in the Previews catalog... This cover was inspired by the cover of Batman # 405 drawing by David Mazzuchelli for the mini-series Year One, the same impact on the look of the masked vigilante watching the reader from his world... The cover is still a DEMO is not the final version that will be textured by a master of photoshop.

Tonamelt Final Design English version by alexcruz
Tonamelt Final Design English version
An new update about the old guide of final design that I show in the 2001 at INDAUTOR (The Copyright Office in Mexico) for the graphic design registered of our vigilante hero metahuman (we can not say superhero because only DC and Marvel have that right)...

I always had the idea that in the inner page of the back cover of our expected comic # 1 one-shot we must show the original design guide of our character being redrawn by a professional artist...

But like in the case of the cover of our awaited comic book. I think: what the hell, why I can not do this? Also the most correct is that the first guide design of a character had to be drawn by its original designer ...

And after just over two months (in 2015) with my limited drawing capabilities, here is the final design guide of TONAMELT The Dark Protector in one style more anatomist. Of course, the anatomical poses were taken of drawings from Sal Bucema, John Romita JR, Scott McDaniels and Norm Breyfogle ...

With the design of the Dark Protector I have found that good design if is drawing by the worst amateur sketcher from DeviantART, looks good and if it is drawing by a great professional sketcher, will see amazing.

Tonamelt Jump Attack by alexcruz
Tonamelt Jump Attack
For me is very difficult to drawing with my limited capabilities that I have and the demanding results that I want in a drawing. An artist who has a very good or extraordinary natural talent and he has well bred his hand over time can easily draw lines with harmonious contours that shape a good and balanced human figure... But someone with limited capacity as a server is very difficult to give a harmonious and balanced contours lines of a human figure and I have to tweak the same line several times to make it look at least bad possible. Definitely we not have the hand of a talented artist like a Norm Breyfogle, a Dave Gibbons, a Alan Davis, a John Byrne, George Perez or with very much delirium a Ross Andru or a Jose Luis Garcia Lopez or minimum a David Mazzucchelli.

Well, our business is to be a amateur writer of a level acceptably good and a character designer also acceptably solid. I think it was in 1999 or 2000 (can not remember) when I was to register the design of the second version of TONAMELT The Dark Protector. I remember the INDAUTOR official who served me told me. "It is a lot like Batman Beyond" WHAT? And I said, "Maybe it's by the black areas of suit and by the peak on the mask and because in the composition of the costume design of all existing superheroes have a logo on the chest, but otherwise I think not." Well, are beautiful the opinions of a neophyte in the design theme of superhero costumes. I present in the register office of INDAUTOR a poster of our character TONAMELT The Dark Protector in several heroic positions to the registration of his graphic design.

I to take the basic idea for all this heroic positions of the comics of Batman, Spider-Man and Daredevil and I draw all this with a version very crappy of Bruce Timm style which was very fashionable in the late 90s. I always had the idea that this poster with several heroic positions with which I to draw TONAMELT The Dark Protector for his design registration, should appear on the inside of the back cover of forums in his first comic published. But this old poster of TONAMELT that show him in various heroic positions beyond look very amateur, looks awful the truth. So I take the decision to retouch all those old heroic positions to present a new version of this same poster that I was doing with the drawings influence of Sal Bucema, Norm Breyfogle and John Romita JR, converted this to my very amateur anatomist style. Also we think that all this drawings can to serve for the printing of decals or even for the advertising images in various consumer products and souvenirs... The business of licenses by outside of the comic sell, that we think can serve to capitalize our publishing house.
