Hey guys and gals!

My name is Ross Hughes and I am a freelance Digital Colorist. I ran across this board a little while ago so I thought I'd sign up an introduce myself.

Some things to know about me:

- I've been a digital colorist part time for the last 4(ish) years. I was cruising another board and got inspired to give it a try by a guy who was coloring the cover to Avengers/JLA #3. Next thing you know, it stuck and people actually want to pay ME to color. Ha. What a racket!

I've been working the last couple of years on a title called Fallen Justice for Red Handed Studios. It's been a blast. We've got 5 issues of the 7 issue mini-series in the can, and I'm currently working on issue #6. I've been so grateful to work on this (and learn on) this book and with the other people involved in creating it.

- I'm an unabashed smart-a$$.

- I've got pretty thick skin (especially around the midsection) so feel free to offer up your opinions on my work. I noticed there is a section here specifically for crits, but feel free to drop the hammer here if you feel it's warranted.


Here are some promo pieces that I finished up recently for the book. I'll post some more of them when I get them finished up. I'm already noticing a problem with the glow around Prometheus' arm. I'm thinking that happened when I converted to CMYK. I'll fix that and repost, but in the mean time, I'd love to hear what you have to say about anything else.

I'll swoop back in here and post some of my other work, or you can check out my DA page to see some more of my work. I'm available for commissions as well. Just shoot me an e-mail or a PM and we can discuss the details.

Hope to talk to you all soon.

Ross

I would have to agree with Bill, your work is outstanding. I noticed most of it from your deviant art account.
As for having pretty thick skin for criticism, I think I have you beat. ^_- My style is so far off from current traditional comic coloring that people have often told me my work is too amaturish. Somehow I doubt you'll ever have that problem.

When you get the chance have Tony or Bill email you a copy of Dan Fraga's recent piece, the contest ended but I'd love to see what you can come up with.

Anyway, welcome aboard and take care.

Ross you should join us in the colorist section when you have a chance, at the moment we are discussing color theory.
We could always use another opinion, and once more nice work!

I'll be right there! Just have to go to a couple morning meetings first. :?



Okay, I FINALLY got everything situated with my new computer and was able to update these a little bit.

I dropped the sat level on the tail end of the jacket in the first pic and brought out some more light in his arms and shoulders to help break that up a little bit. Also added a whiter highlight to the underside rimlight to help him pop out even more.

I added some rimlight to Justice Theta.

I fixed the glow in the Prometheus pic, and played with my color holds on the background rocks so that it didn't look so plain.

I'm moving on to some new ones this evening, so hopefully I'll have a couple more to be able to post tomorrow.

Ha! Harold and I got our wires crossed on a couple of the characters. Too late for the pencils and inks, but never too late for color! Oops!

Took a little break from Fallen Justice to color this one up. Harold and I are really starting to find our strides together, I think.
