Had a few hours to kill yesterday, so I pulled up this piece for the next DeviantArt Battle Artist Color Battle.

More colors from Flats for Colorist group on Deviant Art. Wanted to try some different color schemes for me. I know John Rauch pulls of these pink and purple schemes, so I figured I should give one a shot. Still looks odd to me, but it’s outside my comfort zone, so that’s to be expected I guess.

I don’t know how long I’ve had this sketch of Wolverine by Leinil Yu sitting on my computer, but I needed a break from my standard coloring methods, so I trolled through my HD and selected it. I’ve been a fan of Leinil’s for a long time. He has great energy, anatomy, compositions and his rendering is just damn cool. Hope you like it, too.
I was asked to color this exclusive cover for Zenescope’s Kickstarter campaign. I guess it is going to be used on only 250 copies of Grimm Fairy Tales: Myths & Legends #18 as an incentive reward to larger contributors to the Kickstarter thing. I don’t know much about that stuff, though. I just color.
I thought this cover would be a good one to use for recording my process, too. Normally, when I post them to YouTube, I speed them up, but this one I kept actual speed. That’s how I like to watch others work, so I can really see what they are doing and how quick they do it, so that’s why I did it this time. I’d love to do a commentary, but I just don’t have the time. Someday…
Anyhow, here’s the cover with awesome lines by Jamal Igle and a link to the video. It’s 3.5 hours long and available to watch at up to the full res of my Cintiq (1600×1200) so you can watch as if you were looking over my shoulder. Thanks for checking it out.
I had a request from a member of Ten Ton forum to do another video painting over someone’s lines. I selected a Khoi Pham Beta Ray Bill sketch and gave it a quick sketch paint treatment. Video is sped up 4x actual speed since I assume you don’t need too much detail on this sketchy thing.
