THE NAME OF THE GROUP IS COMICS-COLORIST-CLUB!
Please keep all submissions comics related! That would be any comic/manga character, including original comic characters.
We ask that only your best works be submitted. We strive to maintain quality standards even in the "Beginner" and "Critique Requested" folders. Accepted submissions must have a showing of effort in lighting and shading and at least a basic/foundational knowledge of comic coloring. The admins reserve the right to decline images that do not reach our minimum quality control standards.
Due to the purpose of Comics-Colorist-Club, illustrations are not really right for the group - as the Comics-Colorist-Club we accept examples of coloring and line art for others to color only. If your submission is something you've drawn AND colored, that would be more of an illustration, and so not right for the group.
We do accept black and white art as long as you're interested in letting others color it. Black and white art should be submitted to the Practice Linework folder.
Do consider working on sequential pages. If you are serious about working as a colorist, you must be able to color sequential work. Sequential work, regardless of subject, (no nudity!) will be quicker to be approved than pinups pages.
1. For each colored submission always note the artist (or artists) that did the pencils and inks. If unsure, please state so and where the lineart was obtained. Please do not include the lineart in your piece, submit the colors only.
2. No offensive submissions (nothing discriminatory, nothing obscene, etc). If you have to question it, then don't submit it.
3. NO PLAGIARISM! If ANY part of a submission appears to be a blatant copy and paste from another artist's work you will be banned from the group. If suspected, there will be a discussion amongst the administrators and you may be notified to give proof of your own work.
4. Using coloring book pages as lineart is acceptable as long as proper credit is given (example: "this is from a disney coloring book")
5. No nasty behavior. Any decision made by the admins is final. Backlash to a decision made by the admins can result in being removed.
THE GALLERY CATEGORIES
This section is reserved for Admin use only. Any submission to Featured will be denied without notice.
If you have a piece that you are absolutely proud of (or know of a piece by someone piece that just rocks), feel free to suggest that piece to the admins for consideration via a note. You may never know, one of the admins may feel the same and you may get featured!
Stuck on a project and need a fresh set of eyes for suggestions/guidance? Really want to know if that color you picked makes a difference? Submit your piece here so others will know you are looking for direction.
Advance and Pro users--we highly ask of you to occassionally peruse this area and stop to give advice. A simple suggestion or nudge in a general direction is a sure-fire way to help beginning/intermediate users to expand on their work.
BEGINNER or NOVICE LEVEL
Rather obvious--submit to here if you are someone just starting. Also be willing to accept critiques and advice--that is what the club is for, after all!
INTERMEDIATE or MID LEVEL
You are no longer a beginner, but you just haven't quite gotten to that level of "advanced". You are showing that you have a grasp on various coloring aspects, but you know you still have some learning to do. As with BEGINNER, be willing to accept critiques and advice.
ADVANCED or PROFESSIONAL LEVEL
You have some top-notch work there! Also reserved for pros who want to post work that isn't published work. Critiques and advice are allowed.
SMALL PRESS PUBLISHED WORKS
Reserved for published work through smaller or lesser known publishers. Not for commissioned work.
PROFESSIONAL PUBLISHED WORKS
Reserved for published work through the larger companies, i.e. work most easily seen by the masses. Critiques and advice are discouraged--after all, the work is done! Oohs and ahhhs are allowed. ;)
As with Small Press, this is not meant for commissioned work.
Reserved for completed tutorials on comics, inking, or coloring. Please include at least some explination in the tutorial - no side by side images with no explination included.
Lineart made available for practice use by colorists in training. Lineart can only be donated by the original artist(s). Lineart submitted by someone else will be denied or removed.
Remember, this is a place where we as colorists can share our work and learn from one another.
And please remember....
Credit the artists who drew and inked what you colored.
And be nice.
