BlackestNight: Tales by ToolKitten BlackestNight: Tales by ToolKitten
Covers for issues # 1-3 of Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps which i'll be coloring this summer alongside :iconsinccolor: doing the main story. I'll be continuing my run on Green Lantern main as well.

Been waiting to show this for awhile. This is completely a colorists biggest dream and nightmare, but well worth the fun.

I am ADDICTED to Blackest Night GL. It's easy to tell when you color a cover because everything pops and is so vibrant. You're my heroine!

I just saw a comic today that had all of these "rainbow warriors" on the same side, doing their oaths. Blackest Knight is going to get even MORE epic that it already was. Great!

I absolutely love your colors for all of your GL work. I just spent the last 3 weeks reading over 80 issues of GL in order to be all caught up for Blackest Night (I just read issue 1 of Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps not 2 days ago :D), and if there's one thing that's important in this series, it's the colors. With all of these different corps, the coloring job has to be no less that spectacular, and you've done just that. The colors are vibrant enough that they draw the viewer in, yet aren't so overpowering that they become an eyesore. This is an absolutely marvelous piece, and I'd love to see it as a poster once the series is wrapped up. Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

This is comic beauty at it's finest. I think any artist regardless of how stuck up and classic they are could appreciate the color flow throw the spectrum, the action and the sheer pop of this piece. You do fantastic work. Keep it up and I'll keep reading it!
