I was really excited when I got the pages for Nailbiter 14. All portion of it takes place underwater, and as I love snorkeling and swimming I was pretty excited too work on these pages. When I saw what Mike Henderson did here I was elated. Here's the break downs of how I tackled pages 10/11 from black and white to full color!
As always I start by laying out the flat colors
Next I add some basic textures and effects I use on Nailbiter along with some lighting/shadows
Finally I add more lighting effects over Mike's Line work to give it a nice underwater vibe!
Nailbiter 14 comes out tomorrow (7/1/15) go check it out some cool easter eggs in there along with a killer plot.

TMNT Color Classics Vol 3 #4 came out yesterday! Really happy to be working on this book I grew up on the Ninja Turtles and more or less learned to draw copying pictures of these radical dudes. It's a huge honor to be working with some of my childhood heroes.

I thought it might be fun to show everyone how the sausage is made when it comes to the colors on Nailbiter. I'll be cover page 2/3 of Nailbiter issue 10. We of course start out with Mike Henderson's great line work. along with the script I was asked to add some sunbeams behind the butcher.
1st I break the page up into flats making the boys shirt blue, his hair yellow and so on.
Next I add some details and lighting. Patches of brown in the grass, different color leaves... You'll see I've also added highlights and shadows here.
And finally the sunbeams, all the work I've done to this point has been under Mikes line work. for strong lighting effects like this I'll add a layer above his art work blowing out some of the black creating the strong lighting effect you see here.
Here's the artwork with out mikes line work so you can see what I've on it own
