Una versión diferente de todo

Mi cómic que cierra el curso de correspondencia que tomé con Frank Santoro.

The comic for the Frank Santoro correspondence course.

****
El curso y el resultado final están muy relacionados, me pareció muy interesante y productiva la aproximación pedagógica y totalmente abierta de Frank, me permitió liberarme de muchas preconcepciones sobre el dibujo, entender un poco más la importancia del color y los tonos en el cómic.

Lo que más me gustó fue que además de ayudarme con mi trabajo me permite releer un montón de obras de cómic con una nueva perspectiva, entender mejor sus mecanismos narrativos que han ido utilizando.

The course and the final result are very related, the teaching approach and the open attitude of Frank was really interesting for me, it allowed me to free myself of a lot of preconceptions of drawing, to understand a little more the importance of color and tone in comic.

In addition to help me with my work, the course allowed me to reread a lot of other comics with a new perception, to understand better the narrative and expressive strategies that different artists use.

I will post later an english version.
