Lines and colors by me

my first professional sequential penciling project, this was actually one of my test pages.

i got a question the other day about test pages. companies often give them to use to see how we fit as a colorist over a specific penciler, or to test our abilities. this can sometimes equate to a couple days worth of work for no return, if you dont get the job. and only the biggest companies pay you for them whether or not you get said job.

this page alone took me 2 days because i was so nervous, and im glad i got the job!

introducing Van Helsing (the daughter of the original, not just a female version)

lines are just pencil, scanned and darkened and cleaned, photoshop cs6 for colors.
