My Bio
Nathan Lueth came into existence with a pencil in his hand, a feat which continues to confound obstetricians to this day. No one knows for sure when he started drawing or where his love of comics came from, but most experts agree that his professional career began after graduating from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, as a caricaturist in the Mall of America. Soon he was freelance illustrating for the likes of Target, General Mills, and Stone Arch Books. When not drawing comics for other people, he draws his own super awesome fantasy webcomic, Impure Blood (www.impurebloodwebcomic.com) He believes that comics should be for everyone, not just nerds (it should be noted that he may be trying to turn the general population into nerds). He currently resides in St. Paul, Minnesota with two cats, a turtle, and his wife, Nadja, upon whom he performs his nerd conversion experiments.

Hey Nathan, I have a request if you're interested?
Hi, Nathan! I love the stuff you've been doing with Flesh of White!
Thank you so much! Always nice to be appreciated! I like the stuff on your DA page, too.
What do you usually charge for coloring a piece? I've got a few drawings that I'd like to make prints of, but I don't feel like coloring them myself lol
Hey Gavin!
Sorry it took me a bit to get back to you. Deviant Art won't send email notifications when someone PMs me. In the future, feel free to reach out to me at nathanl@nathanluethillustration.com

As for coloring, it depends on how much I have to do. To do a full comic page (ei. flats, shadows, highlights, and special effects), I charge $70/page. Just flats: $30. Just finishing: $40.
Send me a sample of what you want colored, and I could give you a more accurate quote.
