PBX – Videl Sketch

This is probably the only pencil work where I can keep some of the original sketch material. I really like this pic, even if I didn’t actually ink and color the “good” parts. This one, to my knowledge, never got fully shaded by PBX. I’m hoping to do more of those sketches floating around the ‘net in the future.

I love working with Pandoras Box’s work. I hope I’ll be able to do a lot more with PBX’s old stuff; I’ve set aside a lot of them to ink and color in the future.

PBX – Home With the Boys

I contacted Pandora’s Box (still one of my favorite artists after so many years), asking for permission to post and share some colorizations. I was given the go ahead, so here’s the first of what I hope will be many PBX colors.

Like with DTiberius, I inked and colored the whole thing. I know most colorists prefer to keep the original pencil work and lay it over the colors (I have some old PBX colors I did a few years ago where I did just that), but I don’t personally like how that looks. The pencils look great, no mistake, but something about placing them over the colors distorts the colors in a way I don’t like. Even colorizing the original work leaves me unsatisfied, so I take the tedious task of inking on top of coloring instead. I hope you all enjoy the final product.

Iwasaki Tatsuya – Walking in on the Mooks

This is a pic by Iwasaki Tatsuya I colored. I really like Tatsuya-sama’s art style, he did a comic called “Monsterlog” that I loved when I was younger. If there was an English version, I would probably color it, too. His style is very unique, which may make it less palatable for some but it’s what draws me to his work. Hopefully I’ll get the opportunity to color his work again.

As for the picture itself, I’ve always been fond of Mai. I like that hairstyle, which is why I’m also pretty fond of Chi-Chi and Twilight Sparkle (among others). There’s a really good comic featuring Mai I would like to color someday, but unfortunately it can take some time to work through a whole comic.

Bijob #2 – Androids

Here’s the second pic of my Bijob series. Sorry this took so long, I know a number of you were looking forward to it, but this image went through several drafts before I settled on this one. I don’t know why, but I had a hard time getting an angle I was happy with. Truth be told, I’m still not crazy about it, but it’s definitely the best of the ones I turned out.

I wanted to do one with Android #18 and her twin brother, #17 from Dragonball Z. Once I had decided on them, it seemed natural to make the receiving guy (who may not always be a character from the property, but in this case is) Krillin, #18’s husband. We don’t see much of #17 after they marry, but it’s implied in GT (for those who consider it canon) that he lived in the woods after being revived by Shenron. I suppose it’s possible that between the Cell and Buu sagas he paid his sister and her husband a visit, though I can’t say I’m terribly worried about making this picture fit into continuity. 😀
