Scat! Darn Catwoman

If you noticed in my last post, I had sketches of London Bobbies. Well they were intended for this piece. It's something fun to work on, especially when your trying to make all 3 of them different and stand out from a pack.

it was a funny idea, but Catwoman came off looking too goofy. It'd work better with Harley Quinn.

A beautiful accident, but also you get to see the original head from the older copper at the end. I had to redraw that head and photoshoped it in there.

and you probably noticed this from last time.

and if your wondering, the little quote is a title from an Adam West episode of Batman

black canary and green arrow

2 things I love most, Punching Glove Arrows and little birdies that swirl around when a guy gets knocked out

on a side note the green arrow's head was a composition of 2 other bodies

and somehow I made it work, I don't know how I did it

And yet other then another reason for you to pick up Justin Coffee new book
This was actually the least amount of time I've spent coloring in Justin's Art, but still, there is always this momentum and pacing that really makes each one of these exciting to work on.

Here's a peak as to what it's like behind the textures

cream and sugar

Your missing a lot from a resize image that's up on your monitor. There are grains of the paper, when the ink tappers off and starts to slowly show each individual brush hair, or the ink droplets that come when you quick turn the motion of a brush these are little details that I just relish as I was coloring Justin Coffee's work. As I'm working on the contours and the planes, all of this seems just second nature just because how well defined his line work is. For me it seems like Justin already planed out the colors before hand and each line was directing me where to go next. I can't emphasize how much of a privilege it is to work on coloring his art.

So with that in mind, the highly anticipated "Cream and Sugar, the art of Justin Coffee" is FINALLY coming out.

Like I was saying before, just sharing our work on DA isn't really enough. Just having it tangible you will be able to notice all those little subtle distinction that we go through in working on our art. That is the nuance that continues to push us as artists.
Order the book
As much as there will be artists who will study Justin's work, he will be several miles ahead of them as he continues to innovate his style.

Hope you dig it, even if it is super sloppy.

catwoman collab

Just finished coloring in the line art to my girlfriend's catwoman pin up.

I had a lot of fun working on this piece. Gave me a good opportunity to find lots of textures to experiment with

I'm just personally proud of this right here with this kitten. Here's a super tight close up, something your not going to find in a resized image

Yeah, the Vinyl was originally the hard part. I had to research it so I could at least get something close to it, but still stay stylized that it doesn't feel like this painful rendering that's almost photo realistic.

but let give you a word of advice, orange on the face is always tricky. I had to tone it down with the backdrop and everything so she had a more appealing face. And by the way, the kitten is referenced off my own cat.

he's in my underwear drawer.
so please check out my girlfriend's art Tracy Lee Quinn

I went through a solid week without sketching anything. God, it feels so satisfying to draw this.

just a little something I'm working on.

wyliman cover color

I had the wonderful opportunity to work as colorist on this piece

Just really wanted to pop it out, in the spirit of an old Disney cartoon.

Trying to use the original Donald Duck screen grab didn't help as reference because it was too muted and toned down.

So I had add another layer, of a solid orange, set the layer to "saturate." Sorry the image is pretty large

I'm really proud of this piece, and I hope you take a moment to check out Wyliman. And please pick up the comic here and here. The print is just beautiful, your really going to want to get your hands on it and appreciate the detail.

bird hooligans

unruly and destructive birds who loiter aimlessly around in the means streets
