Coloring The Runaways, Batman, Hellblazer and Spiderman!

If you’ve been following along you’ll know that for the past few weeks I’ve been working on a project for my Digital Coloring class. For this project we were given a bunch of different sample pages to choose from to color. I gave myself the challenge of a set of four pages from The Runaways! I’m really excited to be able to share these with you all. I also got to color a Batman page, which is hilarious because it’s Bruce Wayne baby sitting some rowdy twins! I also colored some pages from Hellblazer for another assignment as well as a Spiderman page for my midterm. This page was the most challenging to do because we only had 3 hours to complete the whole thing! It was really nerve-wracking to be under such a tight deadline but I’m pleased to know that I can pull off something that looks polished under those circumstances. We’ve been talking a lot about the basics of coloring and techniques as well as discussing and learning about how color can be used in telling a story. Color is an extremely powerful tool, it helps us know how to feel or what to see on any given page. With each page I do, I take into account the story and the logic behind each panel and sometimes I ignore the logic to create clarity or mood.

In general 5 weeks into this class, I’m learning a lot and having more fun. This class has only proved to boost my confidence and help me develop more fine tuned skills for finishing off pages! I’m excited to show you all more in the future.

**Again, I’ll say that these pages were not drawn by me**
I’ve colored these for the sake of education and am not making any money off of this work nor am I affiliated with the artists or companies who hold the rights to these pages and characters.

The Runaways
Issue 25, Pages 16-19

Work, Work, Work.

As i’m making my way through my fourth week of Summer classes, I’ve got a lot to show you guys. I’ll keep it short and more art based.

**The line art in the following work is not mine. The color work is.**

I’m currently working on coloring some sample pages from the Runaways that were provided from my Professor, so I’ll be posting those up soon.

Anatomy, Muscles, Summer Time!

I’ve just finished my finals for this quarter! Junior year has come and gone and I can’t believe Junior year is over.

Senior year. Bigger and better things.

I have to say i’m really nervous about approaching the closing of this chapter of my life and diving into the next BUT i’m also really excited to find my place in the world on my own!

Anyway, I digress.

My finals were really fun. I aced my Art of China test for sure and for Music for Motion Pictures I created a temp track for a scene from Master and Commander.

Those classes have really opened my eyes to things that I haven’t taken the time to really take note of and appreciate in the past– the rich art and history of my heritage as well as the process of putting a sound score to a movie. I’ve always loved movie soundtracks and i’ve always wanted to learn more about the history of my people and i’m really glad I got the chance now to learn and be inspired by these classes.

For my Constructive Human Anatomy class, I did studies of statues by Bernini and Michelangelo! Check ’em out below~

I’m really proud of these and I’ve learned way more than I could ever learn about the human body than I could if I was studying it on my own. If you’re at SCAD and have an interest in learning about the human body for artists definitely take this class!

This summer i’ve got some pretty awesome classes lined up. I’ve got Detective Narratives and Introduction to Psychology which I think will go really well together as a study of the human mind for my own personal benefit. I’m also taking a studio course, Digital Coloring and Lettering for Sequential Art which I’m quite excited for because I’ve only learned to draw on the computer on my own and I’m thrilled to learn some things about digital art in a formal class setting!

I’m excited about the future but for now, I’ve got a few weeks of summer and it’s time to relax!
