prepping WIP tutorial by ToolKitten

the piece was drawn by J.Scott Campbell, Joe Mad and Humberto Ramos. I'm embarking on a mission to pull together an extensive tutorial on prepping group shots for color, coloring group shots and finalizing and unifying a piece with special effects.

It's going to be detailed, and there is going to be a wealth of hard to find information.

You will only be able to get this special package through patreon!

Azure pg1 by ToolKitten
Azure pg1
first page of the new story created out of my dreams and through an amazing writer named Pat Shand.

Azure is about the physical weight of depression. How the flickering, golden moments of a day can make you feel like you’re flying, and how the darkness can manifest into a nightmarish monster.


This story is being created step by step on patreon, if you would like to see the process of the entire creation of a comic (and how I work specifically) you can sign up on www.patreon.com.neiruffino

drawn and colored by me, coming soon!

it starts with the Essential Comic Coloring Tutorial Package 1 by ToolKitten, first uploaded here and now available on Gumroad if you're interested. I'm new there, but I hope to grow my products list eventually, adding in a few more little things as they arent available on patreon any longer.

find the tutorial on gumroad here gumroad.com/neiruffino

Your work's amazing.  I'm still learning my way around DeviantArt so forgive me if I'm missing something obvious but where can I see if you're available to do a commission art piece and your rates if so?  Having the same issue looking at other artists.  Looking to compare rates on an MLB/Walking Dead piece I'd like to commission.  Is there somewhere on DA I should post 'job available' or something?

Love your art.

Actually searched for your dA gallery after finding your art here (flic.kr/p/v3wP7r), just making sure you know it's there, as there is no description crediting you or linking back here.
