Hello Cranboyz! Just checking in with an update on coloring. I've been continuing to practice with colors with as much time as I can spare, pushing myself to be better and to work faster. I've got a couple of pieces I'd like to share here, to show my progress.
First up is a great commission of Invincible and Atom Eve by Joelle Jones. I saw this piece online and decided to take a shot at coloring it. This was my first attempt at using the coloring method that Comfort and Adam use, as well as a few tricks I picked up from talking to Simon Gough, the regular colorist on Robert Atkins' work on Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. Looking at it now, I see things I would fix, but I think it was a good first attempt.
Up next is Justice, the first piece I picked up from Robert Atkins during his Avengers month on his sketch blog back in April. After seeing the movie, and starting to re-read Busiek and Perez's Avengers run, I was in a huge Avengers mood and decided to use this for my second practice piece. I felt like something really clicked during my work on this one, and although I made a few mistakes along the way, I am starting to formulate a process that works for me.
Since I picked up Firestar from Atkins as a companion piece to Justice, I decided to color her next. Again, I have a long way to go, but I really feel like I'm getting the hang of doing this. And really, it's a hell of a lot of fun to do. So look forward to more coming in the near future.
I'll check back in down the road with a few more pieces. Next up, more Avengers and maybe a couple of Turtles...
