Creating a comicbook it's an incredible journey, from develop the characters to make the story interesting for the readers, I got the idea of Deadly Rock 3 yeas ago and bealiave it is an  incredivle adventure, is still a work in progess proyect but It will be released early 2018, so go on and ask me anything you might be curious about ;)

Sinopsis: The story is set in hell, a world called Hellgrave and inspired by Rock, a world where only music matters, there is no religion, no rules, only Rock N'Roll.

 But Hellgrave is not the world that used to be years ago, now it is being ruled by an evil demon that tries to eradicate the music of this world annihilating all those who live in it, without salvation only remains to survive.

The plot takes a twist when Joan, a girl determined to avenge her people, embarks on a journey to end the evil forces once for all, but she will not be able to do it alone.  She meets Jimmi, a loser from earth who wants to be a greatest rockstar, who for some inexplicable reason, ends up in the world of Joan, she convinces him of the importance of saving Hellgrave and to achieve it they must join forces to form the greatest rock band of all! and put aside their differences and to learn from each other to be able to save the world in which they live.

Did you take part in conceptualizing your comic book, apart from being the graphic designer?

Nov 3, 11:28PM EDT0

In fact I do, I think that is one of the advantages I have to be able to make eye-catching logo, know how to promote it in social networks and of course to know how to make eye-catching images so that it looks like something truly professional.

Tell me about your experience working remotely. What do you feel is important to make sure the work gets done efficiently?

Do you think it is easy to create a character people will love?

Nov 2, 3:29PM EDT0

Not easy at all, it is always difficult not to fall into a cliché character, but of course you must create something that people can relate to and understand what they may be feeling, so you must create an original but always humanized character even if it is a alien.

Nov 3, 2:15PM EDT0

Let’s say you’re designing a new logo for our company. What would the process look like?

Nov 2, 11:18AM EDT1

In a very simple way, the first thing is to study the company, know the opportunities and weaknesses, know what it is that you want to communicate to the audience and then start to create brainstorming, playing with the ideas until you reach the final result.
