Invincible #126

At last, we reach the end of my run on Invincible. This is the last issue I colored, which coincided with the end of the "reboot" story arc. Not much else to say, really. Looking back on this issue, I think I see why the rest of the team decided to go with a different colorist. At this point, my coloring style was moving in a different direction, and I think I was starting to lose the plot. I just got carried away with following some sort of vision that was at odds with the style they were looking for.

Of course, this is all speculation. Whatever the case, I see a lot of pages in this issue that I'd like to go back and fix. That said, I feel the same about a LOT of the work I've done in the past. ;)

Anyway, enjoy!

1/6th scale Barbarian

Here's a model kit I did a while back (the Barbarian by Fantasy Realms). This was my first resin kit, so there was a lot of learning done along the way. The building part of the kit was simple enough-- as it was basically all just one piece, plus the base and a few accessories-- however, the quality of the casting left much to be desired. It took a ridiculous amount of grinding, filing, sanding, smoothing, puttying, and even sculpting, until I eventually just gave up and moved on to painting. That part was fun.

Anyway, enjoy a few pictures!

Nebula

Among my many hobbies and interest, I also dabble in music. A while ago, I decided to get a bunch of retro synth plug-ins for Reaper and get to work on actually writing something. So, here is the result!

This is the first piece of music I composed, and I only had the vaguest idea of how Reaper worked when I started. I also knew next to nothing about mixing and mastering. As a result, this was absolutely trial-by-fire, with many tutorials watched along the way. That said, it was also immensely fun!

Anyway, please enjoy this piece of 80's synthwave style music! (Oh, and the video is just a bunch of free wallpapers I threw together in Windows Movie Maker.)

Invincible #124 & #125

Time to post some more Invincible stuff! We're nearing the end of my run on the book, so hang in there. ;) Looking back on these pages, I'm shocked at how clean my rendering was here. Guess I've been going more "painterly" for so long that I completely forgot.

Anyway, enjoy!

Issue 124





Issue 125

Green Valley #2

So, I recently found out that I got an Eisner Award nomination for my colors on Green Valley. I have to say I was pretty shocked, but it's still nice to know all this hard work is being noticed. Let's celebrate the occasion by sharing some pages from issue 2!

This was a pretty tough one, since at this point I was still figuring out how to handle this book, while at the same time trying to keep things consistent with the first issue. Looking back, I think it turned out rather well-- it could be among my favourites of the series. Heck, it was hard to limit myself to my usual 5 pages, so that's always a good sign!

Enjoy!

NieR: Automata's 2B

I recently played NieR: Automata, and I absolutely loved it. It's a beautiful, sad, amazing, and mind-blowing game. Furthermore, I have a huge crush on 2B, so I whipped up a quick sketch in her honor. Glory to Mankind.

Entirely done in Photoshop. Enjoy!
