This is a tribute!

Liam Sharp recently posted this awesome tribute to Deaths Head II and 90s comics on his twitter:

I simply couldn’t resist colouring the first page and settled on a muted palette with an added paper texture overlay to give it that vintage 90s Marvel UK feel.

I’ve uploaded my flats here if you wanna give it a go.

Corona colour

Just a wee colouring practice page cobbled together from old head sketches in CSP. I inked and coloured the heads individually spending about 20 to 40 mins on each until I filled the page.

One Love

PJ Holden kindly offered up some more inks for colouring on his blog and I couldn’t resist. Give it a go too why don’t cha, I’d love to see some more approaches to this sublime wee one pager.

We’re jammin’

The latest Colorist Jam is Captain America by Brent Schoonover.

I really enjoyed colouring PJ Holden’s work last month and I’ve been looking for similar sketches to practice on. Colorist Jam is always popping up in my timeline so thought I’d give this month’s Cap a go. Spent about 30 mins on it altogether (including flatting for Clip Studio) using a conventional palette with a texture overlay.

Is it Alien day yet?

PJ Holden posted an awesome Alien on Friday and kindly offered up the inks for colouring.

Would’ve been just swell if he also offered up the flats too (just kidding PJ). I really enjoyed this, it’s prob the first time I’ve tried colouring someone else’s work and I spent just under 30 mins on it altogether. I produced the flats in CSP using the workflow from PJ’s Imagine FX tutorial and briefly considered exporting the file for use in Procreate to just go crazy with texture and brushes. I quickly changed my mind though and imported an overlay texture layer after I worked out my palette and added shading, etc.
