Veteran's Day Salute by sinccolor
Veteran's Day Salute
5" x 8", Watercolor on Paper. I painted this while in college (Yes, they had invented paint by then). It was inspired by the Desert Storm campaign in 1991. Sharing it now as a thank you for those who have and are currently serving this country. A thank you to their family members for supporting them. 
I have very few Hush portfolios left from the convention circuit. So I thought I should offer them here for those of you that couldn't et to one of the shows I attended. They sold for $100 at the shows so I am going to sell them here for the same price and offer free shipping (within the US 48) with your purchase. The portfolio comes with a signed and numbered plate of each of the regular covers from the series. That's less than $10 a print!!!  For international orders, I will deduct $20US off your shipping so you get a similar deal. Please message me if you want one. I have samples of the plates and the envelope they come in below.

Like I said, I only have 12-15 left so the sale will go until I am sold out.

I am a freelance artist who works mainly in the Comic Book industry. As a colorist, I've worked with many talented artists in the field and colored most every character in the DC Universe. Some of the books I have worked on include Batman: Hush, Justice League, Blackest Night, Flashpoint, Superman, Dark Knight, Wonder Woman, Astro City, Harley Quinn, and Arrowsmith.
I also teach art classes at the San Diego Zoo which helps fuel my love for drawing animals/wildlife. Information about my classes can be found at Click the calendar link.
I hope you enjoy my work.

I am available for commissions, whether you're interested in hiring me to draw wildlife, comic book characters or to color comic book art that you own. Please send me a note with any inquiries about commissions.

Most of the comic book pages and covers you see here and which I have worked on over my entire career are available as 1 of 1 Artist's Proofs. These include a Certificate of Authenticity and are printed on Optica One 100% Cotton fine art paper. These are truly stunning prints, if I do say so myself! Again, send me a note with inquiries about pieces available and prices.

I am working on a comic book publishing line. I would like to see if you are doing some coloring for some artwork for an introductory guide to the publishing line. Reach out to me if you are interested.

I have a question for you. and if you don't have the time to answer it, I totally understand, I know how busy a colorist can be.

So, lately I have been taking a lot of commissions, which means I'm working with a lot of new clients I've never worked with before. The problem I'm facing is that after I've been thorough in asking exactly what they want me to do on the piece before hand and I have finished coloring it and send it off. I'm occasionally getting clients who (after seeing the finished colors) have a long list of alterations, a lot of which will end up making me far less satisfied with the end result. Things that I know will make for a far less colorful image.

So, my question is: do you ever make alterations that the client asks for, even though you don't fully agree with their color choice? For example: my client asked for a dark grey background, behind a ink heavy red character, when I originally had a bright green background, in order to make him stand out more and have a complimentary background color.
Or do you have a term that they agree to at the beginning, that says, limited or no alterations? I really want to please the client, but I also want to keep a reputation of good colors.

As a colorist who always tries to make their colors look the best they can, I thought this question was suited for you.

Again, if you don't have the time to answer this, I understand.
Thank you for your time and for being such an amazing inspiration!

Wow! Thanks so much for responding!  As for the favorite artists right now, it's Jim Lee and YOU!  I'll be buying that George Bridgeman book for sure.  As for coloring and lettering the DC way, I wouldn't have a clue as to where to start from that.  I just don't want to end up starting with terrible quality art supplies either and I'm ignorant in that department.  I've been doing it every day and it's not as horrible as I thought it was going to be!  Looking at your art inspires me to keep going every single day.

I literally just made an account to tell you that your work is very awesome and inspires me.  I really want to get better at drawing and coloring and your artwork is amazing.  I would like to know if you had any suggestions as to what kind of materials I should get to get started?

Thanks, Dustin. First of all, I recommend reading and using a couple books as reference. The first is George Bridgeman "Drawing from Life" the second is how to color and letter comics the DC Comics way. both are great insights into what I do every day. I also recommend reading a couple books about color theory. Second, I recommend that you look thru comics and find who your favorite artists are and keep those books easily accessible. Same goes for colorists. Lastly, just draw and color using the reference i listed and looking at what your favorite artists do as inspiration. Download scripts off the internet and draw 3-4 page sequences from them. I recommend coloring over other people's B&W art as well as your own. This will help your drawing as much as it does your coloring. All of this takes dedication. You have to do it every day. No excuses.

Hope this helps.
