Howard the Duck X Deadpool page 02 by jaredjlee Howard the Duck X Deadpool page 02 by jaredjlee

I am going to a comic book convention called Wizard World Austin on the 23rd of this month.
I want to show some samples of my pencil work to comic companies to see if they will hire me.

From what I researched the best portfolios are small ones; 3 page story featuring single hero (Marvel or DC character), 3 page story featuring team (Marvel or DC), 3 page story featuring a small conversation (non super hero story characters).
Then a cover for each of the stories.
So in all 12 pages.

This is my first page/ cover. I found an original script I liked on the penciljack.com forums and it is 5 pages. I really like the characters and stories so I am going to go with it.

This is the first page to Howard the Duck X Deadpool. It is a spread that looks like a cover so that works for both.

I draw in non photo blue pencils and ink, but I used 4h pencil for this. I have been told that if you want to pencil then don't ink your work.
4h is an old friend, and using a lead holder seems to give me better results than the pencils. The lines are darker, and I am using less weight on the pencil.
Keeping the lines clean and readable was about 30% of the work on this drawing.

PAGE TWO
(Five Panels)

 

Panel 1. Howard the duck is driving along in his cab. He looks grumpy and is flicking though the radio stations.

 

CAP:

Four hours earlier

 

HOWARD:

Lousy skrulls crippled the economy. How’s a duck supposed to make ends meet if no one’s tipping?

 

Panel 2. Howard stops flicking through the stations and is stretching out his arms a little bit.

 

HOWARD:

Well at least the day’s almost over.

 

RADIO (ELEC):

…is bananas, b-a-n- a- - -

 

Panel 3. This panel is shot from outside the cab. Though the cab is in the panel, the camera is angled up slightly so that we can see Deadpool falling through the air, as if thrown off a building. He’s on a collision course for Howard’s cab.

 

CAP (HOWARD):

Not like much more can go wrong.

 

Panel 4. Deadpool crashes down through the windshield of Howard’s cab. Howard flinches and screams.

 

SFX:

Crash!

 

HOWARD (burst):

Quack!

 

DEADPOOL:

Ouch.

 

Panel 5. Deadpool, lying on the hood of the cab, looks up at Howard.

 

DEADPOOL:

Oooh! Gwen Stefani!

 

RADIO:

This s*%# is bananas - -

Thank you.
I wanted to make sure that the reader had an idea of where he was. 
I also wanted to show that I can do backgrounds.
