SUPER REAL SPECIAL: VS The Movie Industry / PREVIEW 5 - Dan Mendoza / PART 1

The next guest artist to feature behind-the-scenes-artwork from the upcoming SUPER REAL VS THE MOVIE INDUSTRY SPECIAL is Dan Mendoza.

Dan, well, I don't know Dan too well... He's out of Long Beach, California, and I got to meet him briefly at this year's Wizard World LA. I know he did some really cool animated shorts, apparently student films (Mortal Hunter)... which you can check out HERE. He also keeps a gallery on Deviant Art, and is working towards creating his own comic.

Dan is another artist who's style is very unique and doubtlessly born from many influences, from comics and manga, to anime and animation. I really dig his approach to character design and color, which was a treat to see him apply to the cast of Super Real, as his section features the entire cast. Dan may be the least polished of the guest artists, but he's got a raw energy to his work that I think you'll find very cool.

Here's a page from his section, from pencils, to letters!
Very cool!

Tune in for more behind-the-scenes art from the special next week!
