Conan... the Pirate by spidermanfan2099 Conan... the Pirate by spidermanfan2099
Okey Dokey.

So this is for Atula Siriwadane ([link]), the penciller/inker for the the 'Lonely' comic i've been working on. We finished up the first 22 pages last week and its now in other hands (more on that later, and more pages too!)

Atula does an AWESOME Conan! Lines are all his, colours are all mine, 2099, did that rhyme?!

I was raised on Conan, funny story about me going to a USA themed Amusement Park (American Adventure) and getting a photo of my face put on Conans body then printed out onto a teatowel which hung forever in my late Nans kitchen... so yeah, I saw Conan/Myself as Conan every day till I was around 18, cool yeah :)

So, just a thanks to Atula for putting in the work on the 'Lonely', hope he likes this... I bloody love it XD

Hope you all likeys too, and thanks for any faves from it.

Ta ta for now!

Rad

PS. There will be a process piece in the scraps gallery soon ;)

Really liking your stuff man. I'm an aspiring comic artist and I've recently been hired to colour an OGN - may well be bugging you for tips soon! ;)

Go for it mate, always open for lending an ear or dishing out tips if I can help :D

(Careful with the payment deals that they offer you is my first tip... I always turn down backend payment unless the team behind it is established or renowned, or the book is gonna be a sure fire hit!)

Can you tell I got stiffed early on haha ;)

It doesn't matter ,thank you for interest in my comment. How are you colouring them ? I can't do that and I look at a magazine called as "DigitalArt" in my country, but I can't do that. I can draw charcoal drawing well. Can you help me to colour them if you have time. Thanks in advance and goodbye for now :D

I do all my colours in Photoshop, takes a while to learn it well, but it fits well to whatever style you need, providing you have the visual image in your mind :)

I'm afraid I dont have alot of time to do any practice work lately, I have to use my time with portfolio work and paid stuff... got bills to get through! You could pick up Photoshop easily i'm sure :D

Thanks Arley, now I need to get back to GR! I am stumped by fire and flames, honestly stumped... maybe its a block! best not be haha. I'd also love to colour up your Lunar Ray pic when i'm done on GR, if that'd be cool. Cheers again dude :D

You!? Stumped!? I find it hard to believe with all the AWESOME work you have been pumping out lately! I did a crappy quick paint over for Chris to help him out a little. I sent it to you just in case it helps you too. Not that you need any help! :D

As far as coloring Lunar Ray, Anything/Anytime, my friend!! Your work freakin' ROCKS!!! :thumbsup::XD:

Hey thanks Arley. I had a look at that GR, some tasty colour on there already... mine is looking completely different haha! I tend to work quite thickly now, and thats what my flames look like... Thick, sounds odd, looks odder ;) Thanks for sending that over to have a look at, motivated me to pull it back out and tweak some bits. The Lunar Ray piece, I know that its gonna be a collab with the original creator, so i'll leave a gap so he can get first colours out, i'm sure he's looking forward to posting the first up :D

I had to tie a belt around my head this morning, to keep my brain and ego in... compliments literally slap me in the face and I never know what to say, other than a meek and humble thanks. Your work rocks the shit out of my rocking work(!) :)

If thick looks like anything you have been pumping out lately, I know it is looking AWESOME! Nothing odd about it!

Also, about Lunar Ray. Take your time, you are probably right. Although, If you finish first, and want to send it to my inbox, I will not complain!! :D

Plus, any compliments thrown your way are well deserved my friend. Your work is on the money, and I can't wait to see your next piece. :thumbsup::) Keep it up!

Like???
You can't imagine how much I love it.

You didn't just surprised me.
You stunned me dead.

How can I thank you. (For the Awesome 'The Lonely" Work too.) Will and me so lucky to have you color the GN 1st issue.

You are my favorite coloring genius.

Your color sense is Amazing Simon.
I can't think of better color scheme for it.
And the lighting.

You really made it so alive.
Thanks so much Simon.

Fantastic! I think Will is just lucky in general with 'The Lonely', its gonna be a great book. Glad you like the scheme for my stuff, I try and think about that as much as possible... I suppose I should, calling myself a colourist and all haha! I look forward to doing more stuff with you in the future mate... hows that Lonely cover coming along? Any chance of a sneak peek? Like a small lo-res photo in my email inbox ;)

Yes, the block is lasting a long time, haha, until I get distracted from it :P

Yes, me too, in fact I was just looking at what needs to be done, on both the painting and the helmet. Can't wait!!
