I'm Writing the New Thunderbolts For Marvel!
The announcement went out Friday so it's official: I'm writing a new THUNDERBOLTS monthly series for Marvel Comics! Working with the Avengers editorial team and artist Jon Mailin to bring this team back into the spotlight is going to be a blast. Check out Jon's work here on DA: ~JonMalin (https://www.deviantart.com/jonmalin) The Thunderbolts have been around in a few different configurations since 1997, but if you've never read their adventures I'll give you a quick overview: They're a team of heroes who haven't always been heroic. Many of them are actually villains in search of redemption and the tough choices they make will define their heroic or villainous legacy. The

I'd absolutely love to get my hands on the brushes you use but I really can't afford the course right now to get them! Do you offer the brushes for sale anywhere? Also, which of Kyle's brush sets would you recommend?

Kyle's Megapack has tons. Much of what I use is free - Borodante, KNKL both have free brush packs.

Ah alright. I'll try to find those and try them out. Your work inspires me so I'd love to try your coloring methods out with the right brushes!

I'll say this though. Don't get too caught up in brushes. I use a regular soft round brush a lot. It's just a tool. Brushes don't matter that much.

Hey, Michael, I've found this interesting material on 13th Dimension about coloring.

Hi there, 

I believe you might be coloring on a monitor that is far too bright. It's almost impossible to tell what's happening, and the colors are way too dark. Watch this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bY_XRZ…
