Reynard City New Recruit

I've added Reynard City New Recruit to my links list, it is an online comic I drew, coloured and lettered a few years ago. It's quite fun and worth a read.

Here are some pages for The Baker Street Irregulars which I've recently coloured, the story and art is by David Morris for Corvus press. I've used a different style of colouring for this project and have gonne for a more two tone approach.

Warning Parcel force

I would like to post a warning for anyone who uses parcelforce. I have just been charged a £7.76 VAT bill which I don't mind. What I do mind is they have also charged me an additional £13.50 'handling charge' which I'm appalled by Making the total up to £21.26. I had already paid good money to have this posted. I shall be avoiding parcel force in the future. I only ordered a jumper!!!!!

I've recently been lucky enough to have been given the colouring work the the David Beckham book for Bluewater productions Fame series. Similarly to all the colouring jobs I'm offered I view this as a great  and very enjoyable opportunity.

I've decided to spend some time here to give everyone an inside view of the colouring process that will help bring this book to life.
I start with the line art and script provided by Bluewater.

Before I start colouring I adjust the contrast and clean up the line art. Pablo Martinena's art is so clean it makes this part really easy.

I then choose an overall tone, this will help to tie all the colours together later on.

I then start to lay down the flat colours starting with the largest area of  a single colour. This really helps with the rest of the page. At this point I reference everything, I am very lucky as Peter Rogers script has included all the reference for me.

And then the rest of the flat colours.

I then re-apply the overall tone.

I then start adding the details, the highlights and the shadows using separate layers.

I then render the rest.

After this I add any highlights speedlines and other lighting effects required to make the piece pop.

And here's the finished piece... GOAL!!!

Following this here are a couple more pages coloured for this book. I hope everyone has enjoyed this inside look.

Winer wonderland

Here's a few pictures I took on one of my long and very very cold walks last January showing Britain's incredible winter. I have never seen snow like this before.
