Filipino comic book artist ROY ALLAN MARTINEZ returns to the comic book scene as the artist of FVZA: the Federal Vampire and Zombie Agency.
David Hine, writer of FVZA, talks about how it's like to work with Roy and his artwork:
DAVID HINE : Roy is a terrifically talented storyteller. I’ve worked with him before at Marvel, on the Son of M series. I discovered that he has a particular interest in horror and zombies above all. You could almost say he empathizes with them. Roy’s drawing skills are fantastic and once Kinsun Loh and Jerry Choo have added their digital paints the result is heightened realism that a lot of people assume is photo based. In fact it’s purely down to Roy’s knowledge of the human figure and observation. His pencils are an absolute delight and I couldn’t be more pleased with the finishes that Kinsun has done. A lot of digital artist rely on the software without having the genuine drawing skills, but Kinsun and his studio are terrific artists in their own right.
I don’t have a lot of first-hand contact with the artists. Roy is in the Philippines and Kinsun in Malaysia. My scripts are very detailed so Roy has most of the information he needs. I see layouts from him and give my feedback before he goes to full pencils. I also give notes on the colors, but really these guys know exactly what they’re doing and don’t need too much guidance.
