Alice no5 pg10 inks

I was the colorist of this page when it was originally published. It was a Zenescope book, so it wasn’t inked. However, I believe Sheldon Goh is an up and coming talent and I wanted to showcase how I envisioned his work presented. He does great with pencil, but I think he would really shine at one of the bigger publishers with a good inker (not claiming to be that inker, just showing my version).

Pencils by Sheldon Goh.
Inks by me.

Been busy with covers and Trekker

Can’t complain. When the work is flowing and the paychecks are coming in, I’m a happy camper. Here’s a few things that have come out since my last post about a month (yikes!) ago.

Call of Wonderland [Zenescope] #1, cover A. Pencils by Anthony Spay.

The Jungle Book [Zenescope] #3, cover B. Pencils by Carlos Granda.

Currently been very busy with Ron Randall’s Trekker series. Publication announcements coming soon, I promise, but for now you can see some of it online at trekkercomic.com where Ron is posting all the old work. We’re about half through posting my new colors on the old Trekker Color Special from Dark Horse.

Zenescope Kickstarter Cover

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.

Last page, last panel Beast is pasted in by request from editorial using part of the cover image that I didn’t color from issue 15 (I think).
