AHS intro by BobbyRubio AHS intro by BobbyRubio
Hey guys, this is the first page to my comic "Alcatraz High." For those of you who are unfamiliar with me, my name is Bobby Rubio and during the day, I am a Story Artist at Pixar Feature Animation and after hours, I work on my comic projects. This is from issue #0 and it was colored by my friend, Michael Greenholt. I told Mike to design the colors like a color script to a movie. To think of the emotions of the scene, cool and drab colors represent the school to convey a sence of forboding and entrapment. Warm colors would signify freedom and joy. I think he did a brilliant job! His colors truly enhance the emotions of the visuals and don't take my word for it. Check it out for yourself [link]
I'll be posting a couple more pages and divulging a little creator's commentary on them. If you guys like it, please tell your friends. Thanks in advance!
-Bobby

Wow, it's colord! The emotions do look pretty fantasticly "lit up" with the coloring, but it still wouldn't be the same without your lineart. There's so much detail and time put into it!

And I've already showed this off to my brother. He's completley hooked and has demanded to see the rest...I told him to cough up the cash. :XD: Might as well talk my hard-working brother into it, right?

That, and, we've only read one comic before in our lives (it's a crime, I'm sure) we found it in the garage and turned the pages in total fascination. It was Iron Man in the middle of a story arch and we had no idea what was going on, but we loved it anyway.

I am SO excited to see this. This art style is something I'm trying to achieve for a comic idea of mine, but I can't quite seem to nail it right. Just from this page, I can find several great examples of sequential art techniques, and I love how it gives me new ideas. I think the more shapely (and, well, animated) qualities of your work is getting me in the right direction. I just browsed through your site, and I'm definitely impressed. Makes me want to unwatch this account, just so I can watch it again.

Wow, thanks for the compliment. I'm glad my work inspires you. I've been inspired by all the great artists I've worked with and all the cool anime and comics I've collected through the years.

I do have a car that needs to be washed... hmmm...

In all seriousness, I suggest going to an art school, put togther a portfolio and go for it.

I didn't just get here. It took years and years of practice, working at other studios, hard work and a little luck.

Good Luck!

Yea, I remember finding it years back....I think I had just started college at the time...and I believe I actually had to order the comics online cause I couldn't find them around my area.

I am not attending this year unfortunately :/

BobbyRubio Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2010
Thanks! Not only is it trendy, but it fits his character. He's the only one in the school wearing the jumpsuit as a little jab against the administration also the "orange" helps him "pop" out against the drab colors of the school. All intentional.
