GL by Ratkins coloured by spidermanfan2099 GL by Ratkins coloured by spidermanfan2099
Greeeeeeen Lanteeeeeern ;)

A colour commission from the super dude known as Robert Atkins/Ratkins. Pencils and inks are his, check out his gallery at...

:iconratkins:

Colours by myself, 2099.

Love these pieces that Rob keeps sending over, its great to work on these lines and he just lets me go at it :D

GL is hard, thats all I have to say. Much respect to the colourists that handle the comic interiors... that is some serious glow control guys :D

Kept the torn border as its nice to have all Robs prints like this in the same style, love how they're all punching out at you :D

Hope you guys like,

Rad!

:D

ps. the bg is all brushes and was a bitch to get right!

Why you don't coloring some stuff to DC/Marvel? Always great colors.

I cant help but grain over everything now... I despise the smooth haha! Thanks dude :D

The smooth is good right? sometimes? no? OK nevermind.
How do you do the grain anyways? I'm sure I had had a slight idea but y'know...

Smooth is good, but its each to their own style aint it! Like some people work the smooth looks nicely, but I just have this love for the vintage feel and I try and carry that as much as possible into everything I do... i'm sure it'll get old soon. I've been doing some stuff that smooth lately, you'll see them very soon :D

The grain is just a texture drop of old paper, with a few tweaks to the original... actually the texture is a couple melded together that I made ages ago. Its like texture 2099 haha!

Yeah now that you mention it, it does feel rather vintage. Whats up with that anyways? Crappy printers back in the day? Looking forward to seeing more of your stuff anyways.
What does the 2099 signify btw? I've been wondering o_O!

I love Vintage comics... most of my collection is older stuff, like mid 80's and early 90's work! Always been a fan of that brown tinge and the visible pulp in the paper of old :D

2099, just needed a tag really. I was finishing up collecting the Spider-man 2099 series when I started colouring 2 years ago, spidermanfan2099 was my email at the time, just ran with having the numbers... and I like the idea that 2099 is the 'future' of Marvel in a way, so maybe I could be the future of colouring haha (sounds ego, but its not really, just funny)!

I'm kinda the opposite. I like the modern feel. I do like retro style in modern mediums though.
And so the mystery of 2099 unfolds xD. I say you could be the future of colouring man, you're def on the right track :D!

I love the new stuff too, but I just have a thing for old school covers and the colours (even though I dont really produce that sort of work!)

I feel like i'm on the right track most days, but we all have our doubts dont we, and thats the only thing that sets me back. Doubts about speed and quality are always there!
