Cosmic Keith color by strickart Cosmic Keith color by strickart
So here's the fully finished character design. This is my first attempt at hatching a system in Photoshop to computer paint my inked and shaded work in a way that, hopefully, blends the digital with the old school.

My main beef with most comic coloring in PS is that sterile plasticity of the rendering. I mean, it depends on the style you're going for, but for this, it would be too clean and fake. So, I'm utilizing the graphite and paper grit of the original to help remedy that.

Oh, and that green stuff on his boots is Predator blood. : )

Well said. The mixed hand and digital in the coloring really brings it together. Plus, who doesn't like space heroes? Assholes, that's who. Lol. This is awesome.
