Thread: Zip and Mekk

Zip and Mekk
3 new additions to my creator-owned book are Zip,Mekk, and Tekk.
Almost done with the main crew line-up. I just have to wrap up the design for Kai. I found an awesome writer, for my creator-owned project, but it's a secret for now. Sorry!
I know that I went straight to a new design for Mekk. I wasn't totally feeling the first two designs. I wanted something we all could relate to, and to tie more into a Japanese-type story that I developed. I decided on a regular panda, but my good buddy Ryan Odagawa did a google search for me on Red Pandas, so I referenced off of real Red Pandas, and was shocked with the final design. This one is the keeper of all Mekks. haha
Remember these cats? This is the line-up that Zip, Mekk, and Tekk are part of.
Hope ya'll digs!

your stuff reminds me of some guy working for marvel.. i think.. anyway, good style, i would love to see some scenes with a background and maybe some more contrast in the characters. they still look a bit flat.

Your style is to be commended. Well done mate!
My only crit here is Mekk seems to be fuzzy while the rest of your characters are not. By fuzzy I mean the smear tool was used when I think his hair should be composed of flat colors like the rest of your pieces. Just a consistency issue I think.

mekk turned out really nice. I love the coloring on the new pics. If you ever have the time,could you do a tiny tutorial,or just show the process of how you work? I'm really curious as to how you get the results that you do...its amazing. Do you just use photoshop with lineart on a separate layer and regular color layers set on multiply?
cool stuff dude,

Lim- i probably remind alot of people of someone. Could you elaborate more on it being "flat"? i wanna learn.
SquaredS- Absolutely right! It's just for my personal concept reasons, but I'll definitely be consistant when drawing and coloring the oneshot. Thank you!
R'johni- Thank you! I'll be putting out a book of my collected artwork, and in it will have a step by step coloring tutorial. in it. I keep my lineart in the channels area, so it keeps my file size smaller. when i am done coloring i bring it over to layers and multiply it on top.

ok,I tried figuring it out,but I'm stupid.
How exactly did you put the linework in the channels. Did you make a new channel or put the linework in an existing channel? I created a new channel,and it created a channel called alpha1...ok so that was ok,cuz when I pasted the linework it appeared...but then when I clicked on the layers section to create a color layer...the linework disappeared...does that sound right?
Anyways,I know you're busy,if you can't answer to this no prob...keep up the good work dude...

your style is flawless. clean , sharp, wonderful.
you`re a minimalist in line, in color and in shade,
and you`re so damn good at it.
i wish you`d be so kind to show how the hell you do it.
you can call it a tutorial.
that`ll be just fine.
