So I had a TINY TINY bit of free time at work this past friday, so I took one of those many unfinished and undeserving images from my computer and decided to try to get it into shape to actually post. Well, not the most successful endeavor I've ever set out to accomplish, but whatever.
It's a simple display of how I often work. Start with the sketch, clean it up, then MAYBE slap some pathetic attempt at color on it. This particular character is from the Rose Petal Place toy line, animated special and series of books that I was quite fond of in my younger days. Her name was Iris and she was the shy artist.
Soooooooo oooollllddddd. This image is SO OLD. From back when I worked on Justice League Unlimited old. It's been sitting on my computer for forever, half colored and unloved. So what the hell, I'll just throw it up in all it's hideous glory. The pose is a bit wonky, and the color is horrendous, but that is why I don't get hired as a colorist. Cuz nobody in their right mind would pay money for this.
Horrible, horrible photoshop airbrush. Craptastical gradient sky.
So why the hell did I sign and date it as 09? Oh yes, because the terrible color job is mostly recent. Ever here the phrase "haste makes waste"? I guess it's true.
