When you watch a livestream or any other sort of work in progress video where one of your favourite artists is painting, do you you ever think to incorporate their techniques/methods in your own artwork to help you improve your painting skills as an artis

Hi Eva, I see you've got a pretty strong color gallery going on! If you're looking to push your work even more I thought it'd be worth making sure you know about the HiFi Color for Comics Kickstarter. The book has been updated from the original publication and has already passed it's first stretch goal.

Future goals will see new content like color theory for comics, coloring toned artwork and coloring for the web amongst others coming alongside new artwork from creators such as J Scott Campbell, Katie Cook & Humberto Ramos to name but 3.

What's more you automatically get access to the on-line HiFi Academy if you get a digital or print version of the book and incentives include options such as digital or print versions of the instructional book, portfolio reviews and follow up with one of industries top colorists, one on one lessons on line or even a 3 day comics coloring bootcamp in sunny Arizona!

If any of this sounds interesting to you or you want to know more then check out the campaign page, the more artists that pledge the more we all get out of the book as those awesome stretch goals bring in new content!…

I appreciate you telling me that I have a strong colour gallery. I knew of this kickstarter project and I'm going pledge.

No worries, I'm glad you're interested in the project. The original print run of the book was really useful to me so I'm looking forward to the update, though it's a bit of an odd feeling now I work for the studio that helped get me going :)
Elvenwyn Mar 26, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I think it would be pretty awesome to work for a studio that helped you with your art. Also I'm looking forward to getting the book.
