It just occurred to me that I never finished posting pages from Rocket Raccoon. Let's do something about that!
So, here are pages from the issue 7 and 8 arc, which was drawn by Filipe Andrade. This was a nice change of pace in terms of colouring. It was also all on an ice planet, which was a lot of fun, and quite different!
I've been binging on Lovecraft audio-books while working lately, and this inspired me to do a little digital painting. It's pretty fun drawing something with little regard to anatomy and other such inconveniences. I might have to do it more. ;)
Now, who wants to travel the aether in a brain cylinder?
Because I'm a big nerd I love giant robots. I also love building models and miniatures. So, when I recently discovered Bandai's Gundam model kits, I naturally crapped myself. I became obsessed with these things, and have since bough and built a few (among other model kits).
This particular kit is the second one I put together, and the first one I fully painted. In fact, I also bought an airbrush just for this task, so this was also my first time with one of those. Talk about trial-by-fire!
Anyway, here are a few pictures of my fully built and painted Master Grade 1/100th scale RGM-96X Jesta. Enjoy!
So, here is the rest of the series. Issue 3 and up is where things really got crazy, and I got to go absolutely nuts with the colours. I was really starting to get the hang of the art at this point, and was really getting into the groove. I look back fondly on these pages. Anyway, enjoy! Oh, and all the sweet sweet lines are by Skottie Young.
So, during my long lack of posting, I coloured Skottie Young's "I Hate Fairyland" (among many other things). This was quite possibly the most fun I've had working on any book so far, and I'm thrilled that it did well enough to warrant more issues.
It took many weeks and back-and-forth for me to come up with a style we were both happy with, and looking back at the early issues, it's funny to see how much more comfortable we had both gotten with the book by the end of the series.
I'm going to try and post some choice pages from all 5 issues, starting with the first 2. Obviously, all artwork is by series writer and creator Skottie Young.
