Toothy Flats...prelim

So, for the latest installment of The Adventures of Toothy, I decided I'd show the process of coloring.  First step for a colorist, after getting the prepared scans from the inker/publisher, is to flat the drawing.  This creates flat planes of color for the colorist to select and render.  This is a separate layer in photoshop and can be used as a safety net if the colorist screws up.

Comics: Grade Four

In my opinion, one of the best comics on the list.  This is a great book for fourth grade, not only because they are getting introduced to superheroes in everyday media and cartoons, but because their sense of humor can appreciate the superhero humor and parody in this book.  Check out the review: G-Man

More GrailKnights

So, the Grailknights (a melodic Superhero Metal Band) in Germany have a new drummer.  He is the same character as before, but a new person is drumming for them.  So, I was able to just change the head on the drawing...ahhh, the beauty of photoshop.  And next is replacing him on the T-shirt.

Outlaw Star

So...I made a bet with a Domo Stanton, a friend from school.  He is a Ravens fan, I am a Broncos fan.  All indications last week showed the Broncos were going to DESTROY the Ravens...I was wrong.  The bet was a 4x6 of any character and if the Broncos won, three of his amazing Fanboys vs. Zombies covers.  If the Ravens won, he'd get a deck of my sold out MMD #1 Limited Edition decks.  Needless to say, he'll enjoy the decks and this drawing of Gene Starwind from Outlaw Star...

Logo Design

A friend and co-worker is an Independent Intimacy Consultant on the side.  I recently created a logo for  her company.  The company is called Metro Cherry, and this is the logo design.  It was created in Adobe Illustrator CS5.
