Hype Machine, Day 1! Supercon on the Horizon...



With my book dropping next week, it's time to start hyping that thang! Deadpool Team Up 892, Written by David Lapham, Drawn by me, painted by John Rauch. I say painted because he goes far beyond what a colorist typically does.
Also, i take off on Thursday for SuperCon in Florida, which i am looking forward to in a BUG way! If you're in the Miami area, stop by!
With only a few days to spare before i leave, let the parade of images start!

Thanks go to the two Pats! John, thanks! I am curious what you don't like about the colors? I Love what Rauch does over me.

don't get me wrong, I like the colors (though, the green in the background of panel 4 is weird) just not as much as I like the inked page. I feel like a cooler palette would've served the scene better. then again, I'm not an experienced colorist (or a colorist at all) so what do I know.

John
Well, i certainly like to hear your thoughts on color, i've seen your blog and you've got some serious skills!
In the spirit of two artists discussing something critically, i'd like to say that the success of panel 4, for me, is completely due to the green and red. She is warm, red hair, warm skin, and the complimentary color scheme brings a nice harmony to the panel. She pops as the passive green submits to the dominant red. IMO.
Also, the previous scene was VERY green, and this scene had to shift to help the storytelling. Rauch does a real nice job using color to tell the story.
Good talk! Do you have any more thoughts?

I definitely agree with that. It just seems like that panel stands alone on the page. Maybe if it was the same green as the curtains it would be more harmonious with the rest, then again maybe he wanted that to stand out from the rest of the page. "that" green just throws me. I don't think its bad, the panel itself works...it just pops me off the page for a sec.
And thanks for the compliment.
