Vaempir Testament by Stephen Lindsay & Daniel Thollin

Last spring I got asked to re-color the beginning of Vaempire Testament by the super talented Stephen Lindsay & Daniel Thollin. It was my first "real job" in coloring comics(and these are also the very first comic pages I've ever colored) so I was really excited about this one, and still am :) I love Thollins style so it was a total joy to work on these.

Sadly it seems that the guys won't have the time to continue the story right now so the project is on stand still also on my part. I really hope they'll find the time to do it one day as it's a way too good of a comic to be just  forgotten.

I can already see about gizillion things in the pages that I'd like to fix as I've learned so much about coloring this summer but I'll just post them as they are right now.

SICK OF THE LIVING DEAD! - Welcome to Camp Kill-A-Way!

Finally a page from the Slasher comic I've been coloring has been posted online so I can do the same thing. It's been killing me to keep this under wraps :)

I've told more about the project here  (and remember to check the Horror News Network thread for the comic too! Link) but it's basically a "slasher/horror comic about two teens who hunt down the creatures that go bump in the night and exterminate them with extreme prejudice". 

This here is page 4, I'll be posting more pages as soon as I get the ok to do it. I tried a lot of new stuff with this comic and am pretty happy with how it turned out. Once again I mostly forgot to save steps toward the finished piece but here's some at least.

The original pencils

 The comic wasn't inked so I just took out all the Blue Line marks(which was a total bitch to do, never again) and fixed the lines the best I could.

 Here's pretty much all the colors.

After the colors I added some color overlays to all the pages. Gave it the night time feel and made the fire look hot.

 And here's finally the finished page

Little Necrobothrium Hood

Here's a little something I drew for my boyfriend. He's a comic writer and used one of my doodles as bases for a character he wrote. The script is now going off to the penciller and he asked for the original doodle to send with it as reference. As I felt the original was hidious I refused to let it go and made him this one instead ;)

I am also in the midst of creating characters for a short animation right now so I slyly used the opportunity to try and come up with a style for the main character while doing this one. Scrap the tentacles, add a hood an voila, it's Red Riding Hood ;D

Psylocke by Gilbert Monsanto

First off, 1000 hits in just a few months. Wow, thanks guys :)

After coloring Gilbert Monsanto's beautiful Elektra I just had to tackle his Psylocke too. I love pin-ups like this as they work so perfectly as morning warm-ups.
Oh and someone asked me what is a morning warm-up. Well, before the coffee kicks in in the morning I like to color a simple pin-up or draw something tiny. As with those I can just go with the flow of it and not fuss about all the details as much as I have to in "real work". So mostly it's my attempt to do something fun and almost productive in the morning instead of just hitting refresh button every few minutes in Facebook ;D

But yeah, here's Gilbert Monsanto's pencils of Psylocke

And here's my colors for it

Elektra by Gilbert Monsanto and Alejandro D. Sicat Jr

I already colored this pic some time ago but was hoping to find time to work on it a bit more some day so I never posted it. Well, I don't seem to find the time so here it is with mistakes and all. And yeah, the ninjas in the background suck, I know :D

The pencils are by Gilbert Monsanto and the inks by Alejandro D. Sicat Jr. Alejandro was kind enough to give me a permisson to color his inks.

Ghost Rider by John Lucas

I'm totally in love with John Lucas's art and was blown away by this pic of Ghost Rider.

 The original lines by Johnny Lucas

He was kind enough to give me the permission to color it so as soon as I found some time from work I took a stab at it. Would have loved to use more time on this but guess this will have to do.

The finished coloring

**Edit 14th Nov.**

The pic was really dark and devoid of light so I gave it a slight revamp.

Falling from above page 3

Haven't posted anything in a while but for once I have a good reason. One of my cats decided to go kinda psycho on me and attacked my right hand with full force. Being it's the hottest summer here in years it obviously got infected which meant good wholesome family fun for all in the way of antibiotics and puss removing. Yuch. And as I am right handed it meant no work or anything for a while. The day when I realised I can play Mini Ninjas using only my left hand pretty much saved me from dying of boredom ;D

So this page has been already done for a while but  I haven't been able to post it before. As the title says it's page 3 from Falling from above.

This is the last page for a while as I really need to finish some other projects in between but I will continue coloring this in the near future.

Right now I'm working on finishing the brilliant slasher comic Camp Kill-A-Way I've talked about earlier in this blog. Sadly I have no idea if I'm allowed to show anything from it yet. Kinda sucks as I think it's the best work I've done to this day and am dying to post it :)
