Colored this for Michael Babinski. Truth be told, I had my eye on this one since the day Mikey posted it on his Deviant Art page, so I was doubly excited that he wanted to commission me to color it for him. I've been wanting to break away from the cut and brush style that I've been relying on lately and do something a little more freehand. I don't think I've done one like this since I worked on Fallen Justice years ago. I was really pleased with the way this one turned out.

C&C's are heartily encouraged. smile.gif

Been keeping pretty busy lately coloring Youngblood and Blindside, but I had a little time to squeeze in a few commissions for Mike Babinski. Next up: Trapjaw!

Color commission for Michael Babinski.

I loved MOTU as a kid, so it was pretty easy for me to want to color this bad-ass version of Trapjaw. I don't know what Mattel was thinking with his color scheme though. LOL

C&C's are welcome!

Next month will mark the relaunch of Supreme from Image Comics. Art will feature breakdowns by Erik Larsen and finishes and inks by Cory Hamscher. Cory and I have been getting together on some projects recently and he asked me to color his version of the variant covers they'll be doing. The first few issues will feature covers by Erik, Rob Liefeld, and Cory before they settle in and just do one cover. Cory and I are treating it like a competition and we REALLY want to win. wink.gif

Be sure to pick up our cover when you do your shopping. Remember, a vote for Cory is a vote for America!!! And puppies!

C&C's are always welcome and appreciated.

From Supreme #63



And from Supreme #64

Still in lust (er, love) with your colors, Ross. I agree with the changes they wanted for #64--aren't adjustment layers the most wonderful things ever? ;-)

Keep your crayons sharp...!

Here's the thing. I almost NEVER use them. This was the first time that I actually did my secondary lighting on a different layer. The only reason I even did it was because Cory and I had talked about doing a couple different background colors to see what worked the best and I wanted to be able to adjust the hue of the secondary lighting. And YES, that was so much easier!!!!! Definitely something I'll be doing more often when I think I might need to make those kinds of adjustments.



FINAL revision. I hope. Cory and I went back and forth on the skin tones for a couple days. So what we have here is a healthier looking Supreme. Also made a couple other minor tweaks. But we're calling this puppy done.

As a stand-alone piece, the green background can't be beat, but the gold Supreme title is just going to jump off the blue background in print, so I can dig this one too.

I saw this page previewed on Jon Malin's twitter feed, so it should be okay to show the colors. I'll be coloring Image Comics revival of Youngblood. Issue #71 hits the stands this May!!! #71 will feature art by Jon and myself, as well as pages done by Rob Liefeld and Matt Yackey, before Jon and I take over exclusively in issue #72. Jon's art is so sleek and bad-a$$ and this book is going to be just what Youngblood fans want to see.

Another collaboration between myself and Cory Hamscher. Glad I was finally able to color something I'm allowed to post. I'm going through withdrawals. smile.gif

This will be made available as a print. Contact me if you're interested in getting one!

Looks like this will be the last cover that Cory and I will do for the Supreme series for a little while, so we really wanted to make it special. The second I saw the rough sketch, I knew this thing was going to be awesome.

I tried a slightly different technique with this one and it really brought out some vibrant color so I'm definitely going to be playing around with it a bit more to see how it works on other things.

I picked up the current issue yesterday. Not sure if it's this one as it had a different cover.

I'm hoping Erik can get the ball rolling. The previous issue is one which I had no frame of reference for having not read Supreme in the past. huh.gif

I'm right there with you. I had never read Supreme before issue #63 and it took me a while to get into it and figure things out. By the time I figured out everything I needed, the issue was over. Ha ha! Erik should be throwing off the chains of Moore's script VERY soon and taking things in his own direction.

The one you picked up yesterday (probably #64) was probably a cover that Erik did. When/if there is a second printing, Cory's and my cover will be used for that issue. It's the image with Supreme coming out of a portal clenching his fist. (Also available as a print, BTW! wink.gif ) This image will be (most likely) for the second printing of issue #65 next month.

Just read #64 and it's off to the races. I'll be buying this for a while it seems.
