45 by fatheadwilson 45 by fatheadwilson

This is a page I did around a month ago for the anthology called 45 written by Andi Ewington for com.x. It's up for preorder at amazon, and there is a blog for the site here... [link]

A note about my process: I didn't flat this piece as I usually do with my work (or have it flatted, whatever). I just started scribing away with the tablet. Another difference in my process was that I did most of the values in grays and then painted over that on another layer. It was fun, and nice change of pace.

I'm curious, was that process any faster than your regular process or was it just different?

Just different. I'm pretty sure it wasn't faster, and in fact, it might have been a bit longer (assuming the piece was flatted for me). It was fun, and it would be nice to do every now and then. But I haven't colored this way since this page, back in August I think.

You ever work that way?

Sorta, once... but I F'ed it up. Even though I got a lot of good feedback from it. Though that's probably just because they didn't realize just how far the piece was from what I was going for.

Wow, loving the rendering on this one Matt! I used to do a lot of the non-flat colors back in the day, it was always a lot of fun...I used to use a grayscale layer as well! That background is gorgeous!

I gotta' tell you, most colorists use the bg as a throwaway, but you treat it with so much respect!
