witchblade 144 preview by nebezial witchblade 144 preview by nebezial
this was a fun issue to draw, it revisits the origin story and it was fun experience to channel one of my original comic book influences, late michael turner

so there is a bit of his style to my art in this issue, it was a very nostalgic feeling to revisit the pages that long time ago got me started liking witchblade

Your depiction of Sara here certainly makes me think greatly of the depcitions of her by the late Michael Turner. You catch the feel of his work while still keeping your own touch. Excellent job ;)

That first frame reminds me of Adam and God, Creation and Creator. Very symbolic and still an awesome concept. You make Witchblade fans proud with your epic use of style and colour. Thank you for continuing this beautiful legacy!

I was very shocked when I heard about Michael passing...He was probably hands down, one of my favorite comic book artist's. I like how you revisited the original.

Aside from Michael Turner.. IMHO no one else should be doing the artwork for Witchblade! Hands down, you are my fav digital comic artist. I'm a big envious...and perplexed as to how it can look so messy and yet see awesomely clean, well done and smooth... BTW, not sure if it's a secret or anything...but I've been curious... How do you manage to do the tight, scale-like layered detail on the armor/gauntlet? Like on the first 3 panels to the left? It looks like it could be a pre made detail that is added in like a detailed brush for photoshop...but...then again it doesn't.

Oooh,
What a SUPERB shot of Sara becoming one with the Witchblade once again Nebezial! I too have missed these types of scenes from the WB series, as it too is what captured my attention to pick up and read the issues from this series. I hope they do more scenes like this in the near future as your work Nebezial is FLAWLESS! (That much detail in the WB armor, must have been so time-consuming to pull off!)

Fantastic job on this pic., I hope to see more like it in the near future!

Would it be safe to say that your artwork in general, and not specifically just an ode to MT, carries along a lot of his style?

It must be such a great feeling now having been a great contributor to the Witchblade legacy. I adored Michael Turner's work and his images were the main reason I spotted Witchblade all that time back in the comic book shop. It was one of the turning points in reassessing my own anatomy skill as well. I can see the influences of his style immediately on viewing this one ... just enough for the right type of homage. Dynamic layout in the panels too.
