The big fat COLOURING thread
« on: 16 May, 2012, 09:10:28 am »
...that will hopefully be big and fat. I thought it was high time there was a dedicated thread to colouring and colourists and COLOURING ADVICE generally. Any opportunity to rub it into the face of Americans that it's spelt differently.

To kick us off here are three pages from THE AMAZING Massacre for Boys with lines from the astounding Steven Denton who's actually A RIDICULOUSLY RIDICULOUS colourist in his own right. No pressure!

A great idea for a thread Owen, and a damn good start too. Did you colour these pages then?

Will throw a few things up tonight when I get home from work - been colouring my old Fractal Friction compadre James Corcoran's new 'Kid Tiger' strip recently, so I could show those. Plus I've been colouring something by Dave Hitchcock with a possible view to collaborating on a strip (although it's looking unlikely now due to deadlines changing, but never mind - I've still got a sample splash page I coloured). Anyway, nice one  :)

Yeah - I coloured them - got me potential work with Time Bomb and Afterlife, Inc. as well :O Wasn't expecting that!!!

Your colours are an inspiration Mr Soffe sir, the Fractal Friction stuff used to blow my eyes off!

Here's some for Grant Perkins (not sure if he put this in his thread or not)

You mean like a general colouring thread? ;)

That linked to nothing - making me the victor! Me and Alski clearly both have something in common... although it isn't luscious flowing locks I tell ye that.

Maybe this one could be dedicated to actual samples (which we could all discuss) rather than just a general discussion? I like the idea of gathering them together in one place.

Here are the first couple of pages of Kid Tiger (drawn by James Corcoran):



And a pin-up of the character:

Ooh lovely job, all of you. I especially like your work on that Perkins Ghostbusters pinup.

And mgb, wonderful stuff on James' strip - love to see a couple of my favorite artists work together. But although Kid Tiger has some lovely whiskers, they're nothing compared to the whiskers of a certain character you recently colored... :D

Thanks to some cack-handed copy and pasting on my behalf, I should add.

CrazyFoxMachine! That first example is outstanding!! In fact, everything on this page is!!

I was tipping my hat to Grimm the other day on his 10 minute portraits. (I've since been noseying through his DeviantArt, which only deserves yet more metaphorical hat tipping!)

I'd like to see your colours on his ink (ooh err!!) Could be awesome!

Wish I could draw/colour... Hopefully I make some progress with my writing and maybe I could wrangle you guys into working on something with me one day! :D

So much for that idea.

Love those colours Soffe, sir. I think you're the best of all of us - those muted vintage tones are just... glorious.

I can split it off again, I am just after the merging/splitting Nectar points I get...

Ah, thanking you chief, that's very nice of you to say. 'Muted vintage tones' are precisely what I was going for, so I'm very happy to hear you describe them as such. I have to say your colouring is coming on leaps and bounds - that Grant Perkins one is working like a dream (and I'm not just saying that cos it's your birthday).

I wouldn't mind - ! My intention was a "show us your colouring" rather than "let's generally talk about colouring" I was going to call it "Does my colouring look big in this?" But that DOESN'T MAKE SENSE AT ALL.
