@Snotnarok - I can't find the first time you posted this (but I remember seeing it). Anyway, one thing I'd like to point out is similar values of color: the blood on the blade is pretty much the same value as the dark part of the blade. It's one of the most basic principles of coloring, and a big no-no. turn your image into grayscale and you'll see what I mean. The obvious way to fix it is to use a brighter or darker value of red to even it out, or do the same to the blade instead, with a darker or brighter gray. Or both, I guess. Gradients can help too, if you like using them. I'm not gonna tell you what to do, there are several ways to go about something like this.

I'll consider your advice, the blood was honestly an after thought I stuck in there last moment, the comic gets bloody so I just before exporting it shrugged and slapped it in there.

The image in general was an experiment with a different shading style to see if there was a quicker way of coloring pages that still looked good.

But really thanks for the input. Smile

New T-Shirt design. It's only my second, after the 'Zombie Killer' silhouette one, but i'm proud of it. Very Happy

@natephoenix - I like the feathers. But... it may help to fill the black areas you have there, with white. It'll look more coherent. For the same reason I wouldn't use pencils and vectors in the same design. Choose one method and stick with it. For t-shirts, it makes more sense to use vectors due to a print process which isn't as precise as paper print. But I'm also assuming this is a work in progress, so maybe you already know all of that.

Here's another retro-style travel poster. I made this in PS CS4 using a publicity photo of actress Debra Paget for reference. I don't think I quite got all the shading right, but if you're a bachelor, I'm guessing you won't mind all that much.

I started off as a writer and drew terrible cartoons for me and my friends, then I started meeting some artists and now they do the dirty work for me.

But still wanted to be involved with the art in my comics so I started working as this colorist with next to no skill. It's been a year now since I started my comic ORDER and I've always been secretly proud of this MARVEL piece I had colored for a color battle over at deviant art.

Now there is an old records ad.
(if you should not know the original cover art - it is Coven, Louise Hübner and Bedemon.)

Not too shabby, although it gets slightly muddy (gray/brown) in a few spots, like on Spidey's leg and palm.

Those are some pretty pencils! I hate how it's so much easier to get subtle detail in pencil than in ink. ;|

Thanks!

And I absolutely agree. Inking sucks and I just can't seem to get the same look no matter how I try. I just ruin my pencils.

Those really are very pretty pencils, but the thing I really love there is the way you've arranged the panels in that second part. I love the fact that the last panel border in particular follows the stairs. That's brilliant.
