I've been practicing and building up skills and experiance for a few years and feel ready to break into a more professional aspect of coloring. I'm not looking for a yearlong deal, better a one-shot or a short-term.
I typically use GIMP, a free downloadable program that I've heard is comparable to photoshop.
Previously I've done some work in art minishops on Gaia ( www.gaiaonline.com ), but mostly I've just been practicing on lineart from thier LineArt Jam (people post lines and colorists color them).
Comic-wise, I mostly read manga and webcomics, but I was reading an issue of X-men the other day and it was pretty cool. I'm a soft-core gamer; I particularly like FFX, Magic Pengel, the Pokemon games, and Unlimited Saga (I lost my copy of it though). And as far as other time-consuming hobbies go, I'm in my local Search and Rescue, I like to sew and I like woking on filling gaps in my family tree.
Here is some examples of my work:
My first decent free hand on the computer, it was for a contest, I'm proud of it. All by me.
This one's pretty ^^ Colors by me.
Color-scheming was fun with this 'un. Colors by me.
