  1. Had this pic in my stash for a while now, and just never got around to coloring it. I've been on a bit of an X-men kick for a little while now, so here we go. Pencils by Carlos Gomez
  2. Went back into this a little more to give him a bit more of a rocky appearance.
  3. I colored this on Friday while I was bored out of my mind at work. Pencils by Marcio Takara
  4. Tim Townsend posted this con sketch on his DA page, and I figured it would make a good warm-up piece. I spent a little less than a hour and a half from start to finish on it. What do you guys think? Art by Tim Townsend.
  5. Did this as a real quick warm up before jumping back into some Fallen Justice pages. I wanted to try something different, so I used nothing but water color brushes for this one. I like it. I'll have to experiment some more with them. Pencils by Justin Copeland
  6. Thank you, sir! I made some adjustments to this piece.
  7. Yeah, it would. Thanks, guys.
  8. I've had this pic in my stash for a while now, and even made a feeble attempt at it when I was first learning how to color. Well, with the movie out now, my wife asked me to re-do the pic for her, so here it is. Pencils by Adam Hughes Inks by Tim Townsend
  9. Yeah, Tim's inks really compliment Bachelo's art. Both those guys are insanely talented.
  10. I did this one real quick while in between working pages of Fallen Justice. Whatchu think? Pencils by Chris Bachelo Inks by Tim Townsend
  11. Here's a page from the 3rd issue of Fallen Justice. Business is definitely about to pick up. Lines by Harold Edge Colors by me
  12. One of the projects that's been keeping me up at night is called The Veil from Rogue Wolf Entertainment. I've been given permission to show a couple pages so here you go! Please let me know what you guys think. Pencils by Mariano Del Toro
  13. Rather than doing a warm-up piece, I did a cool down piece last night. Took me about an hour. Just trying to get some more practice with metal and lighting. I love the intensity in this picture. Pencils by Chris Bachalo Inks by Tim Townsend Colors by Ross Hughes
  14. Pretty easy to create actually. The shapes are just a brush that I have, but then I sectioned off part of the bottom with the rectangular marquee tool and then went to the transformation menu and adjusted the perspective. I actually had a bigger problem with the heroic stance and lack of evil in his expression more than the color scheme. The scheme itself will darken a bit when it actually comes time to color him for the book. I was more working out what I, the artist, and the boss wanted as far as a general look. Knowing the creator the way I do, there will be no doubt that this guy is dastardly. :happy: Made a couple of changes and pushed the background back so it wouldn't be so distracting.
  15. I was sent this character pin-up so that I could work up the color scheme for him. He'll be a villain in the Fallen Justice mini-series that I'm working on. I figured a character shot would be as good a time as any to take my first shot at the cut-&grad style. So, what do you think? What do I need to work on? I liked the experience and am pleased with the results, but I'm sure I'm missing something, so let me have it. Lines by Harold Edge Colors by me
  16. Well, after deciding to leave Fallen Justice because I had taken on a different book, and didn't think I would have time for two in my part time schedule, I've been sucked back in. I love working on this book and, thankfully, the creator is willing to put up with any delays caused by my working on another book. Hopefully, I can keep them alternating so that I don't get too overwhelmed. This is the cover to the 3rd issue. Lines by Harold Edge Colors by Ross Hughes
  17. Thanks! And on a brighter note, I'm going to be returning to the book. The creator and I talked over the weekend and he's willing to deal with any delays my working on another book might cause to bring me back on board. I'm psyched to be doing it again since I was just getting my feet wet with these characters and Harold and I seem to click artistically. :urock:
  18. I was sent this to see what I could do with this promo piece. Turns out I was reading the artist's mind when I went with the "Gatorade" concept. He and I are in such a groove artistically that I'm really having regrets about having to leave the book. I doubt the captions I put in will be part of the final product (God, I hope not. The font is terrible) but I thought it drove the point home. Still have a couple things to clean up before I call it done, but I figured it's close enough to show. Lineart by Harold Edge Colors by Ross Hughes
  19. One of these days, when my skillz get good enough, I'm going to try painting over the lineart rather than under it.
  20. No taken seriously. Actually use of filters by themselves are pretty much taboo and stick out like a sore thumb, but using them to HELP create effects can give you some really interesting images. Too many artists use them as a crutch when they start out though, myself included. But that's part of the growing process. Here's the pic without the lineart.
  21. Chrome filter? You wound me sir! I painted in the colors on the Surfer and the board. I used Liquify to pull the colors around to fit the shape board better and give it the liquid metal look though. The Surfer is almost entirely free hand though. I wasn't getting what I wanted from Liquify. I'll make a jpeg without the lineart and post that soon.
  22. You'd be surprised. :devil: I'm not so sure that they couldn't have reversed the roles, but it would have had to have had a lot of build-up and back-story for it to look like anything else than abuse. That's probably a lot more mature than they would like for their characters to get, but it's not as uncommon as you might think.

    This piece was too awesome not to color. Pencils by Gerardo Sandoval Inks by Ulises Grostieta Colors by me
  24. Just a real quick warm-up I did one day. Lineart by Johnny Segura Colors by me.
