Marcus Ranum http://mjranum-stock.deviantart.com/ has a great selection of stock photos to use on his deviatart page. I thought I’d try to do a bit of observational coloring to get some of my head forms looking more accurate. Here’s a first go with a breakdown of my process.
My friend, Katrina Joyner, a military wife and artist, was hit by the recent tornadoes through the mid-west. Due to her situation, she doesn’t qualify for a lot of the federal relief. So, she set up this donation page on indiegogo.com. Please check it out and help if you can. Thanks! http://www.indiegogo.com/Tornado-of-Love-T-Shirt?a=250963
I’ve had these low res pencils sitting on my hard drive for a looong time. I wanted to try some digital inking ideas I had and also wanted to color it. So, I did. 🙂
Taking a little time to work on some issues I discovered while coloring some Zenescope pages recently. I wanted to work on my skin tones and using more bounce light to unify the image and give it the feeling the objects actually inhabit the same space. I found a Deviant Art group called Flats for Colorists. Lots of good stuff there that I can use to practice specific issues I see needing work. This was drawn by Randy Green. Don’t know who the inker is, sorry. Flats were done by Eddy Swan.
A friend of mine, Katrina Joyner, is the talent behind the comic, “10 Confessions & A Kiss”. Please check out her site at
and follow the Kickstarter or Indiegogo links to help fund her print copies. She’s a talented lady, and if you like what you see, help her out.
Today I updated my Coloring Samples gallery to show a new submission sample set. Feel free to contact me with work offers, critiques, or comments. Thanks!

Long story, short–I tried out for a full digital painting job posted by Brian Miller at Hi-Fi Studio. Didn’t get it. But, Brian was impressed with my skills and offered me a few pages of Adventure Comics #528. He liked those, and now I’m a member of team Hi-Fi. Brian gave me the okay to post the pages once published so I’ll be updating this thread as they hit. Adventure Comics #528 today, Booster Gold #46 next week, and Titans #37 the week after that.
Adventure Comics #528, pgs 10, 12
