Keep on swimming... I mean colouring!

During this festive time which is about sharing...Here's an inside look into the process of colouring a comic book page for the Ellen Degeneres book for Bluewater Productions.

I start with the penciled art provided by Bluewater.

I then seperate out the gutters and choose a base tone which will later effect the mood of the whole page.

The flat colours go in next. I reference real people, environments and fish at this stage.

After the flat colours are complete I add the base tone which should be really subtle.

It's now time to pick up the brushes! Using a couple of layers I now paint in all the shadows, highlights and other details. And here you have it, a completed page.

And finally... Keep on swimming colouring.

10th Muse and Isis covers

Here's a couple of covers I coloured for Legend of Isis and 10th Muse for Bluewater productions. They're set in two very different eras but both need to feel grounded in reality.

Colin Powell pages

Here's a selection of pages I coloured for the Colin Powell biography for Bluewater. These pages have been really great to work on, I especially enjoyed the Vietnam pages.

I had my model F-14 sat on my desk for this page.

Velica And Palin

I've recently received complimentary copies of Velica. I coloured the cover (art by Kenneth Johnson) for ztudioz.

I've also received copies of Female Force Sarah Palin. I coloured the interior artwork for Bluewater productions.

I am very pleased with how both came out.
