X-FILES Noir by Valzonline X-FILES Noir by Valzonline
THE X-FILES issue 1, Hastings exclusive retailer cover.

When IDW asked me for a variant cover for issue 1 with the idea of a classic crime/noir style, like the old pulp noir stories, I thought: what? are you kidding me?... I loved the idea!!
It's not necessary to say that painting this illustration was a real blast.
Hope you like it as well :)

Excellent technique and clever touches such as the alien shadow at the door and the Roswell headline in the paper.

Hi Carlos,
We spoke before about this piece. I wanted to get the original...but @^#&$&!!... There is none because it was digital.  Since i spoke with you, I was able to get this issue signed by both Gillian Anderson and David duchovney!  How can I track you down to get your sig on the cover for the perfect Trifecta???
Thanks!!!

I've been hitting up eBay, I'll grab one there but half of the reason I wanted to start this series were the variants that, as I've seen from your folio are all your artworks! Great stuff, glad I found you here and can follow.

The amount of awesome in this piece cannot be contained! From Scully's dress, to the alien silhouette and to Mulder's priceless face. I can just imagine an episode like this, beautifully done!
