TMNT Page 1 Colored
As promised, I'm posting my final page that I created for TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...As if you didn't know) vs Zombies.
This was a project for my storyboarding class, specifically our graphic novel project. Sadly I did not get to complete more than one page. However, since I wrote, illustrated, digitally painted, and lettered the story I think I'll be able to get away with the one page ;)
I was going for the feel that Christian Lichtner had in Ultimates Volume 3 when he colored Joe Madureira's work with a little bit of a blend of Danimation's work in Iron and the Maiden. While they inspired me I think I was able to bring my own feel to this project and I must admit I had a blast! Though I definitely admire all you people out there that do comics entirely by yourself! Man, it's a lotta work!
In the end I'd say this was crazy fun and if I could control a comic from the beginning to end like this, man it would be fun and rewarding! I gotta say too, just adding color totally takes some basic line work and brings it to the next level!
If you're curious, it took me a total of about 30 hours to complete, from thumbnails, rough layout, pencils, digital paint, and lettering.
All work besides traditional pencils was completed in Photoshop CS4.
