Based on a Bruce Timm sketch. Thought I would try something different and give it the feel of vector art. Inked using Inkscape then Coloured in PSPX2 as ever. The background comprises many layers of grey shapes interspersed with ‘mist’ layers created using smudge and gaussian blurred gradients set to screen. Moon is done in similar fashion.
Digital Color and additional elements in PSP X2 from an Ale Garza sketch of the Harley & the Ivy;) Have fun! Merry Xmas from me too.
Merry Xmas & Happy New Year from me. I used a prelim sketch for the Spiderman Blue cover by Tim Sale as the basis for this. background New York shot from google but recolored by me and snow added over multiple layers.
Another finally finished WIP. This started out life as a rough head and shoulders sketch by Kev, I inked over it using vector paths and then converted them to raster to cut them into tapering lines. The colouring is done with multiple screen and overlay layers. Started in PSP 8 finished in PSP X2
Original Artwork by Giorgio Comolo, colored in PSPX2. Black Bolt from Marvel’s Inhumans. Partner to my previous Medusa pic. And yes my eyes were very sore after doing this one too.
An updated version of the Avatar originally created to use over at Marvel-Boards, Based on my Nomads RPG character Beast (a gamma irradiated version of Marvel’s X-man). This updated version is intended for wider usage and includes my current Artwork logo:
Casey Jones’ Wonder Woman Sketch from ’98 Coloured in PSPX2. I think the skin tones on this work really well with the background i chose, but any comments welcome as ever.
Coloured/Additional elements in PSPX2. tried for a wraparound cover feel to it. Meteors from scratch using tutorial off the net. Logo from comic. Background I think was a NASA shot of mars.

From Angel Medina sketchbook. Color/Additional elements PSP x2
The angle of the drawing led me to the coloring choices. Someone on the roof of a dark warehouse would be somewhat in the shadows. As usual the background was created from multiple textures and gradients, distorted to fit the image. I even included my logo as graffiti. I really like how this turned out, particularly the cobwebs and little “Spidey” spiders 😉
Craig Rousseau Pencils. Bob Almond Inks. From the 2001 Heroes Con Program Guide Colored in PSPX2 using many many multiply and screen layers. Can’t remember if this was an official Avengers line up (perhaps West Coast?) – Vision, Wonder Man, Scarlet Witch, Beast, Black Panther.

Digitally colored Casey Jones commission sketch. Done in PSPX2. many many layers!! Main background – Geiger Landscape recolored with ‘fire’ waterfalls. Inset filtered photo of random house from the web representing Xavier’s school. The arcane symbols over the top were a last minute addition but I think they work well.

Original Art by fellow DCG artist TemporalDave
Found this half finished coloring of a Loston Wallace pic in my WIP. Had a couple of hours free so I thought I would finish it. Digital Color in PSP X2. Logo done in vectors.
Well i thought I would try my hand at a bit of 3d work in Daz Studio for a change – David 3, Freaky devil tail, kurt suit from Vadlor (my own texture on suit). The skin is a recolor of the base David skin with some adjustments. Think it turned out ok for a first serious attempt using this software
Well the original version of this caused a bit of controversy over at Heromorph, what with talk of lions (or strangely Dogs?) licking thighs and jean paul being caught wearing Hudson’s (Guardian’s) long johns.. so here is a more traditionally colored costume for Northstar – still with the maple leaf motif. Tried simply removing the red tone but didn’t work so ended up adding white gradients to recreate the highlights from the original image.
Well I was at a bit of a loose end so I dug this out from my WIP folder.. begun in 2003 finished 2007. heh. anyways Antonio Sabato as Alpha Flight’s Northstar in a more patriotic uniform. I can’t remember exactly why i didn’t finish this before, but I think i was unhappy with the texture on the suit and the skin color (was originally a black and white image). Redid the color and the textures and tidied up some sloppy cutting and masking. fixed some shading. You may recognise the base from a couple of other submissions – Captain Britain springs to mind.;) nothing wrong with a bit of reuse. i realise this is more normally Guardian’s uniform, but I felt that a government sponsored team would all have similar uniforms. Maybe if i did it again I would add more of a nod towards Northstar’s original costume but in Canadian colours.
Digital Coloring using PSP X2. The original drawing was saved from eden.dreamcrafter.com a few years ago I think and may have been Jason Chan but I can’t get to the site to confirm.
Another Digital Coloring, this time of a Craig Rousseau drawing. I removed some of the original background lines,but kept the spirit of it with my effects.
Digital Coloring. First using my updated PSP X2. Text by me. Color by Me. Background by Me. Drawing: Paul Ryan. Decided to go for a retro color scheme.
A digital coloring of a Michael Turner sketch. Think it turned out really nicely
