I remember seeing in the back of Michael turner comics, his lineart for pages and concepts for covers, then on the next page you see the full rendered image. its just amazing. I've started doing the same thing, not that i can really hold a candle to Turner (RIP) but still its fun to see it in my own work. Enjoy everyone.

I just completed this page i was working on and decided to upload an image showing the whole process of coloring from lineart to finished colored product. Any questions feel free to ask. I use absolutely no plugins while working with the pages. Enjoy!

This is tough shit. After drawing everything now comes the daunting task of creating an alluring or intriguing cover. I dont know how some people do it...Mike Turner for instance. All his covers are golden. I still havent seen one i just dont like... im trying to make a few, i'll be posting more as i get the time. Heres something im workin on at the moment...

I suck at this. but im hopefully getting better. Currently im really liking Jason Gorder's work as well as Scott Williams. But imitating them is proving harder than anything else. For all you out there who say inking is simply "tracing" and not an art, well your only 1/8th correct. Some pencillers have what are called super tight pencilling skills, where basically everything the artist wants is on the page, and nothing is left for the inker to interpret. In this case the inker simply traces. On the other hand the inker will add depth and weight to his works and something that pencils cannot afford. Also the inker cannot erase. so that blows bigtime. I've been trying to make my close up drawings a little more complicated because im working on A4 which is small for comic book pages but i really dont have the luxury or deskspace for 11x14 paper. this page in particular is something i really like. Im only showing a portion so as to not give too much away. And i've started posting videos of the sketch to ink and then to color process. That will gradually come over time.
