Morrigan and Vampirella get weird
I'm not a fan of the sexytime and the comics coming together so I forced myself to color this the same way I force myself to watch Fox News sometimes.  I recorded the colorness and I will post to yt once I compress it.

Avengers - Comic Book Coloring Style Challenge
This image was the result of a youtube video series I did on different styles of comic book coloring.  I attempted to color each character in a different style, using different tools and levels of detail.  I highly recommend taking the flats below and trying to invent 17 different styles.

If you want to see how any of these were done you can find the videos here:…

The links below will lead you to the original file with flats that I am using throughout these videos.

Pencils (by the incomparable J S Campbell:…


Flats / File used:

Superman in the Dark Knight Returns
I don't have any of my own art up in my office so I thought I would make myself a memory from the first comic I can remember seeing -- Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.  This was the page that stuck with me, this warbled Superman/demon thing hung in the air with a lightning bolt through his chest.

I used a scan of the original Frank Miller pencils to do the inks which vary quite a bit from what is in the book.  I colored what was in my memory and not what was on the page, it's strange how things can mutate in your head over time.  I am going to hang this above my desk, the first comic I ever saw -- it scared the crap out of me and in some ways still does.
Dany And The Dragon
I've heard artists say that color can't improve a drawing, but it can surely ruin it.  I would certainly agree with the latter.  This is a page I scanned out of a coloring book that my wife had, the art is in a word: awful.  All the line weights are the same, it is very flat, and some the lines don't make any sense.

I wanted to see if I could take really bad, flat line art and give it life -- I spent about an hour and a half on this (after flatting) and I could go another 10 before I had something I was really happy with.  The lines aren't colored in very many spots but I did cheat a bit by redrawing Drogon's eye and adding line weight a few places.  I didn't touch dany though she is probably the most offensively drawn part, I just pretended she wasn't there.

The drawing wasn't as successful as I hoped but it was fun to color something from the got world for the first time.

Will upload a speed color of this here in the next day or so here:…
Star Wars Bounty Hunter Cowboy PIstol Dude
Daily coloring practice in Manga Studio.  Starting to feel a bit more comfortable but still don't have near the range that I do in photoshop.  I hadn't used the ruler yet so I put in some hyper drive-y perspective lines that don't make any sense but the ruler, rules (ducks).

Pencils by VASS-comics

I changed the source drawing considerably, to simplify since this is just practice.  I recorded all my manga fumbling here:
