Back in December 2015, I randomly saw a post on Facebook about the “Black Zodiac”, the occult book shown on the movie Thirteen Ghost, I thought the illustrations were really cool so I obviously wanted a prop of my own but turns out these particular pages are basically impossible to find in a respectable resolution for print (at least back in 2015). Thus (also obviously), I decided to make my own super hi res versions and learn a bit of illustrator in the process since there´s quite a bit of gears and mechanical parts on some of the pages. I think the result was pretty decent, I even created a font file to fill in all the text (which is giberish right now but who cares…). I also replicated the paper texture that was rather unique or at least it looked interesting on the images on the internet. In any case, here are some of the pages I replicated, you can as always download everything for free and hi-res on the new download section for this book! Cheers! Here are a couple of example pages: Download all pages over HERE
I decided to make a blog for my drawings, illustrations and non-prop stuff. Just head over to my new blog at http://jcporcel.tumblr.com/ I finally decided to open a blog for my non-prop stuff. Since facebook is crap for visibility on the internet and everybody has basically forgotten about the existence of deviantart, look like a blog is the way to go. Thus, here is mine for anyone who wants to see my drawings and paintings, or rather my attempts at doing that… I hope to start doing tutorials and stuff just like in this blog. Cheers!

So, I also make comics from time to time and I actually spent a couple of weeks working on a 8 page quasi-horror short story for a comic contest (which me and my team won along with 2 other teams). Here is a page from the comic.. and a couple of videos of me painting all pages. Colors by me.
