As far as coloring goes, I can find nothing to criticize. It's really good. Dumb questions: When you have things like the energy of Wanda's Hex Bolts, does the artist draw those and then you color them or is that all you? Either way, bravo, that and, for some reason She-Hulk's earring, really stood out for me. Good work.

I have a plethora of custom brushes that I've either found or made. Specifically, SW's energy was a couple different custom brushes that I used to paint it in. I'd say about 50% of the time, it will be drawn in by the artist and the other 50% is left to the colorist. Just depends on how detailed the artist likes to be.

This started out as sketch by Khoi Pham that I had asked to color and then turned out to be sort of a color contest over at Ten Ton's forums. As soon as I asked about it, I got slammed with work and never got around to coloring it. LOL Khoi and I were at the same convention this weekend so I made it a point to get it colored and presented him with a nice printed copy of it. He loved it and now we're going to make prints of it for sale and do some other prints together in the near future. That worked out nicely. :)

Have I really not posted anything in 6 months? Wow, am I slacking. I won't dump everything but here is some of the more recent colors I've done. I'll try to be around a little more often. :)

Comments are always appreciated!

Another commission for my buddy, Mikey Babinski!

This one looked intimidating from the start and man, it was a beast. I've always loved Bart Sears' style and I really wanted to do it some justice.

C&C's are more than welcome!

So it seems that I can't bring myself to post outside of Facebook and Deviant Art but about every 5-6 months. I keep saying I'm going to change that, but time spent surfing the net is time spent away from working. Grr! I need to find a balance somewhere. Anywho..... Here is some of my more recent work. I went back to work for Hi-Fi following Youngblood being put back up on the shelf but I'm still working on getting another full-time book(s) of my own. In the meantime, I'm available for commission work. Shoot me an e-mail if you're in the market!

Here is some more Hi-Fi work that just came out. Both of these books presented very different challenges because of the pencils we were given. The Mongul pages were textured (at DC's request) from top to bottom, which made any color hold selecting a lot more time consuming as opposed to if there had been nothing in the negative spaces. And the Brainiac pages were what Brian Miller called the worst scans of pencils he has ever received. He said he spent hours trying to clean them up as best he could, but they were still really brutal. Overall, we were really pleased with how everything came out, but you be the judge!

Wow, thanks! We're going to be coloring his work on Justice League 3000 too. Howard said that DC wants that textured look again for that book, so while I'm looking forward to working on them, I'm really not looking forward to how long it will take. Ha ha!

Some recent commission work. I am available to take on commission work, so if you're interested please shoot me a message or an e-mail.

Comments and feedback is always welcome.
