First off, for all your coloring needs check out my little Colorist for Hire entry angieness.deviantart.com/journ…

But anywho, to keep working on the number of styles I'm able to use in order to broaden my client base, I want you guys' opinions. Show me some examples of coloring you guys have liked from other comics or colorists! I'm going to try to analyze and practice other styles so I can get even more flexible and I need ideas.

Here are my current faves and some thoughts:

Dylan McCrae isn't too diverse, but I like his work a lot. He seems to stick with his signature pallette of bold, vibrant hues and lots of pink and blue. His colors might look out of place on darker stories (seeing a Mccrae-colored Hellblazer would be pretty amusing), but they work for the whimsical, fun stories and subjects he colors (lines by Corey Lewis, Bryan Lee O'Malley, Shane Hillman, etc).

Another guy with a limited range of coloring that I love nonetheless is James Stokoe. He mostly colors his own lines in comics like ORC STAIN or WONTON SOUP. So many gradients! You could find every color imaginable in one of his illustrations, but it would still hold to a specific theme without being too busy.

Perhaps my all-time favorite colorist is Jose Villarrubia. He's done almost all of Paul Pope's colored work and a lot of comics all over the place. Usually using flat colors with minimal shading, he plays off of the line art so well. Very tasteful and classic, and with modern colorist boldness.

Nice! He's definitely one of my favorite artists right now. I hope I can pin down a consistent, cool-looking coloring technique like he has.

I definitely love your coloring, too. Very complimentary to the subjects you color, and I love the manga pages you've colored for fun. How much of your coloring process was learned from your time at CCAD? I'm starting there in the fall, and digital coloring is one thing I'd like to focus on a bit while I'm there.

Didn't realize you're in Columbus too! Well most of what I do was self taught but color concept classes and figure drawing really helped me out a lot. But I was a Time Based major, I think the Illustration major would have been more helpful for my coloring

Yep, that'll be my major. heh. Color theory is one area I totally do not get at all, and I am excited to get some formal education on.
