Soulfire Promo -Pencils- by SquirrelShaver Soulfire Promo -Pencils- by SquirrelShaver
This is the line art for a promotional poster that I was asked to create for the up-coming 4th volume of Aspen Comics' "Soulfire" series scheduled to drop this August.

This was actually a very exciting project because not only was I asked to take part in the process of re-designing Grace, one of the series most popular characters, into "dark" Grace but I am also being hired to take on penciling duties for the entire Soulfire volume 4 story arc. That's right, ladies and gentlemen, cover to cover I will be doing the interior pages as well as covers with Peter Steigerwald. No official word on who will be coloring the inside pages yet but Aspen has a great team of colorists that would be a joy to work with any one of them.

Pencils: me (Mike DeBalfo

Possibly the best graphite you've slung onto comic book board sir. Looks amazing.

Oh sh!t, that is awsome news! I kinda stopped reading the series since Turner passed away and the interior was done by some not so inspirational artists. You definitly deserve to do the interior art and the cover. You got my vote and monies!

I gotta say, this is one of those times where I like the lines better than the colored version. Fantastic details Mike!

Dude, you need to keep this art for yourself. Much like Michael Turner's infamous "vault," years from now you'll look back on this piece as a huge deal to your career.

Congrats!
