What if it only gets colder.
I am looking to hire a colorist for my new webcomic The Glass Scientists!
Coming from an animation background, my art style favors simple, clean cell-shading, limited color palates, and economy of visual storytelling- elaborate, finely rendered oil paintings will not mesh well with my lineart! The value/color work for the comic needs to emphasize character acting and help each image read quickly and clearly (good use of contrast to make the important elements of a shot “pop”).
I will, however, need a colorist with a good sense of lighting for tone and setting! I will be providing lighting thumbnails (and occasionally color keys) for each shot set up, but I need someone will be able to carry that intention through to finished pieces!
You will be paid on a per-page basis at one page per week, though I may bump that up to 2 pages per week for the beginning of chapter 1 or for special events.I’m looking to start in the beginning of October.
Here are some examples of styles similar to what I am looking for: 'Kill Switch Engage', Blindsprings, and Gravity Falls. Also, please see these sample pages from my short comic Bleeding Heart for an idea of the kind of linework I do:
(Note: Since I work on the show, it’s kind of inevitable that I would look to the gorgeous color work on Gravity Falls- I don’t expect something that crazy detailed, of course, but it is worth noting that the crazy amount of variety found in GF backgrounds are accomplished with three fairly simple layers: a cell-shaded flats layer, a shadow layer set to multiply, and a simple light glow layer.)
If you are interested, or if you know someone you would recommend, send me an Ask or email me at glitterygothic (at) gmail.com ! Please include samples of your work. For my first chapter, I am especially looking for examples of night-time scenes and use of limited color palate!
Reblogging for evening tumbls!
To those who have already applied: Thank you! I am in the process of getting back to everyone right now. :)
To all those who are color wizards!! Good opportunity right hurrrr~~
Hozier, you just got another fan. Love all of their songs.
AAAYE!! So this is long overdue, but I have updated my STORE with my latest 2014 prints. Most of these are just left-overs from conventions, so they are limited in supply. So help yourself to some SUPER EARLY gift shopping for the holidays (haha)!
As stated above I have a few new products.
11x17 prints: $15 USD
9x17 prints: $12 USD
Two 11x17 prints for $24 USD

Thanks for the continued support, and stay classy! :DDDD
"What time is it?!!"
"IT’S ADVENTURE TIME!!!"
Another print I made for Anime Expo 2014. I thought I’d blend both AT with Japanese Yankee’s hohoho
Higher Sky- Eric Cheng-
Dang…I wanna learn animation.
The bird is cool, but gotta stick to my zodiac.
Enjoy this video I made for you demonstrating how I use Photoshop process scanned comic-book line art to get it ready for lettering and colouring and generally Being A Real Comic Book.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Sucking rough blue sketches out from underneath clean black line art
- Knocking out line art to give it transparent negative space (more useful than simply setting a line-art layer to the “Multiply” blend mode)
- Adding tidy-but-not-too-clean panel borders
Found a really helpful video on creating comic pages without inking (traditionally and digitally)! ! !
Man I wish I found this sooner, could have pumped out pages much faster luls
Art splurge. Just wanted to draw the sea.
We all got a place we want to be.
I apologize if someone has already asked you this, but do you take commissions, and if so, what would be the price range? Your art is absolutely gorgeous.
No need to apologize man! ERMERGERD thanks for the compliment and thank you for your interest! Unfortunately I am currently closed, but I do plan on opening them starting September 3rd, on a first come first serve basis. I just need a couple of days to make some up-to-date commission samples and pricing! So stay tuned!! :D
