Colorists Needed!

Fri Sep 15, 2006, 12:53 PM
Finally, i'm putting together some serious pages for the Sun Knights project... (more info on blaquesmith.deviantart.com/jou…)

Truth is, i really want this to go on, and i want to try publishing it, in E.U. or U.S.A., or both... But, i can't present it without a decent color, i think.

I already have offered the job to some people, many of them not really interested in coloring a not-inked job, but truth is, i'd like to keep it this way, since my lines are not very messy, it's not so difficult...

Of course my lines are clear, so there is needed quite a color work (i'd like to have a finish like many european comics, with smooth gradients, nothing to do with cell-shading or bad japanese animation.

Since the project is not already sold, i can't pay yet, nor talk about money yet, but i can promise that, if you apply for the job and your pages are published, i will pay you the 30% of the total earnings for each page you color.

If you're interested in the job, you can try coloring one of this pages:

Myths Lineart Page 01 by Blaquesmith hi-res version here: crupc.upc.edu/~oriolfm/SunKnig…

Myths Lineart Page 02 by Blaquesmith hi res version here: crupc.upc.edu/~oriolfm/SunKnig…

If i like it, You're in!

Some considerations:

- The cyborg is firing an energy weapon, the trails are lightning-like and done in direct color.

- The 3 weird bands inside the collar of the girl's trenchcoat are self-lighted (LED-like) so that affects the illlumination of the character's face.

- Girl's shades are green

- The "M" logo in the doors is Blue

Oriol.

i'm gonna have a go at this.. but i'm not sure why you want someone else to color your comic when you've got quite the skill in digital painting..? maybe you just don't connect through the tablet well..? may this also be why the comic is done with pencil? .... oh, and, do you want the lineart left as is or retraced..?

Main reason is, time.

I have a regular work, so i mainly draw in weekends, from week to week, so my rate doing the pages is not very high. If i had to color them, I'll be doing each page every 4 or 5 weekends, so, not very fast, huh?

The lineart doesn't have to be retraced, it is fine as is. If i wanted it retraced, i'll try to ink it myself (though i'm not very good at it)

Nice avatar, by the way :P

Best of luck on finding a colorist for this. I'd try, but I don't really feel my skill is up to snuff, and it takes me forever to color anything. :)

I don't see what the difficulty is with your pencils, though. They're beautiful and as clean as I could ask for. I think they lend your work a certain grace that inking really doesn't possess.

To be sincere, i don't see how could your painting fit into my drawings... I'd have to see your color applied to a page.

About pay, i already said what i can give: a 30% of the total profit when the book gets published.

OK, I'm quite flexible with styles, anyway, I'll have a go at one of your pages. What sort of feel are you going for? dark sinisters, colourfull,..etc.?

Depending on the mood of the page. This first pages are darker than others in the book, the color palette adapts to the story, and this pages are kind of cyberpunk.

A little like in the "Johnny Mnemonic" movie, there are cool places with smooth colours and lightning and hard, f*cked up places with harder lightning and almost monochromatic, with few saturation.

Yes, i am still looking, because i've only received two sample works and they're not what i was looking for. When i have decided, i'll announce it in my journal (and put the color samples here)

I'm looking for some pro-looking coloring... i'll color it myself, but i lack the time to do so. That's why i'm searching for another one to do it. Look at my gallery and you'll have a glimpse of what i want...

I'll try to color this one and get back to you when I'm done, OK? If you'd like to see a sample of my coloring and shading beforehand, check out my gallery, especially this piece:

, because that's probably the kind of quality I can give here.
