Interests
I wanted to kick off 2019 by being honest about my art and recognising I need to get better.

I'm pleased with the progress I've made in recent years but know I need to share ideas with other artists (who are better than me in order for me to level up). Looking at you :iconstazjohnson: :iconblasterkid: :iconmrriktus: :iconmatteoscalera: :iconmmontiel: et al ;-) (PS if I've missed you off this list of people it doesn't mean I don't love your art...) 

However getting better at something I'm working might help others at all levels so I'm going to leave these thread live on my DA page. Feel free to share ideas on the subject by commenting on this thread or linking to other resources such as your You Tube channel or blog.

So for the first thing I know I need to get better at...

Crowd scenes in comics!


Now I do understand perspective (to an extent, I'm not David Chelsea) but compositing a complex crowd scene is hard.

Yep I know about having the horizon line cut through figures at the same place to keep everyone in perspective (assuming same height) but there's just so much more to composting the shape and centre of interest for the panel purpose on the story, spotting blacks, balancing mass of crowd with detail, architectural details of backgrounds etc.

How do you tackle a complex crowd scene panel? What approaches have you refined to make life and deadlines possible when drawing rich rewarding crowd scenes?

Xmen Colours - Beast, Wolverine, Captain America
Hi everyone,

Another bit of colour fun and some news...

Read on...

Work on book two of Vol. 2 of The Tide - Witness Protection in Hello continues ready for release this year (sign up to know when on my website www.artofadamlumb.com)

Meanwhile here’s another fun bit of colouring. This time working over some the beautiful lines of #PauloSiqueira

:iconpaulosiqueira:

I really love Paulo’s work. His figures are beautiful and so is his panel composition.

This piece was a challenge because (it turns out) it’s damn hard to make blue skinned creatures credible). I had to make lots of adjustments to get the skin to the point I felt it was believable. This is primarily because human skin is not a simple single shade but has complex tones and hues resulting from what is happening under the skin, on its surface and reflected light from the surrounding environment. In the end I was pretty happy with both figures and back grounds.

I create a unique colour palette for every comic.

I revived lots of nice feed back on Volume 1 of The Tide but the thing that I received a lot of positive feedback about was the colours.

And so to the news.

I have decided to open up my colouring services to other comics whilst I am working on The Tide alongside painted covers. This will be be launched under my new publishing services at Home Studios with a focus painting worlds.

I’m a trained picture editor having worked for many picture libraries and galleries and have a degree in film studies. I want to bring this knowledge to my colour work for others and will be open to taking on projects for comics.

Contact me to discuss your project be it cover painting, single colour piece of full service colouring for your comic project.

As for this xmen piece this is not a commercial piece and is just for fun.

But I hope you like it.
