I saw quite a few flattering comments today, but what I did was akin to a Rose Ruiz win. Greg did all the heavy lifting with the black and white illustration, I just added hues a little more creatively than usual to complement his work.
I’m running out of flesh colored digital ink.
Cover blown, Parisi. We know who Rick and Molly are.
Ha. Overreact? I saw the “doesn’t read the strip” hack garish work coming out of Reed Brennan colored dailies years ago when dailies were first colored. American Color, since bought out, established very high standards for what came out of their company. We transferred that to dailies knowing that speed was critical and that sometimes an error would get past QA.So don’t generalize. I never knock another graphics professional because (1) I probably don’t know the whole story and (2) I don’t like incorrect assumptions made about me. But when I get lumped into the “widespread issue” about third party colorists I push back.
I wouldn’t know, BRDSHTT, I never read the stories. I color by throwing darts at a spinning color wheel.
Oh, piss off. I color nine strips across two syndicates on very short deadlines. Each has its own palette. This is a part time gig on top of my larger graphic arts business. Go bitch to GnK.
Easy does it. Hot deadline. Fortunate to get what they got considering the visual complexity of this arc.
