    Snake Altar (WOTC Eberron)

    Hey-
    Here's a page I did a while back for wizards.... I inked this with pens & then I digitally colored this one. A lot of my comic covers have been colored by other colorists, though I got a chance to color my own work this time around. I'm posting the color final, the ink version and a detail from the pencil. Love to hear your comments. thanx
    -Andy

    Amazing as usual. You are incredible with the inks, and I always think the balck and white versions looks better. This is more interesting as you coloured it yourself. Really good (but the black and whites still blows me away totally, and the colours are "just" amazingly good.

    What size of paper do you work in?
    I'm guessing it has to be a bit bigger than the original to prevent bleeds and other mishaps with the inks.

    Great stuff!!

    Wonderful. Love the colouring. How do you deal with colouring the less dense blacks? Do you paint over them or is there as method of capturing them so that they exist on the inks layer? (assuming it's photoshopped!) Does my question make sense?!

    gallon- the image area is about 10.5 x 14... on 11x 17 bristol board

    culebra- it's colored in photoshop... and I basically just use layers set on multiply to color over the linework...does that answer your question?

    stefania- on the snake eyes i used a photo I had taken and manipulated to get a texture...then distorted it & colored over it a little until it looked how I wanted it

    Thanx for the comments

    Wowsers. It's always a treat to see your work man, you have some mad inking/drawing skills, the level of detail is astounding. I'm curious, how do you get such smooth transitions between your values with ink? (Always a major issue I've run into when having to do pen and ink illustrations.) Also, what are you using to do your inking? As always, look forward to your next post.

    very awesome. reminds me of a story me and my cousin wrote like ... 8 years ago the character had a dream where he was on an island and he faced a giant cobra with a mystical sword after disturbing an altar with snakes around it ... lol

    love the texturing.

    Bad ass Andy! Love the ideas and line art. I think you could have pushed the value range a lot further in the coloring. It kinda flattens it out for me.

    Do you draw the borders in all of you work by hand or add it from illustrator or psd later? Awesome suff as usual.

    I think it's illustrator....those inks are awesome, takes me forever to make a crappy two-tone ink drawing, I don't know how you pull it off with midtones and such, I don't suppose those are pencil lines, but if they are they're also a strongpoint, I just love your inks man, end of story
