Cannon Fodder by FabianMonk Cannon Fodder by FabianMonk
Something to get me back into the groove. I've been swamped with an unusual amount of school work lately (as well as two major exams this week, or well, only one of them now), so here's something I saw in LeSean's gallery. I've always been rather affectionate towards his work, and I just found out recently that the man had a DA gallery, well whoop-dee doo.
This is a character design from his up and coming comic book Cannon Busters (issue 1 is out already though, and sold out, I believe).

Pencils: LeSean Thomas
Colors: Me (Monk)

And sorry for the sloppyness on some parts. Next one I submit should be a little more ambitious.

Those highlights are beautiful. Did you look at any specific tutorials to learn to color?

Not really, mostly real life and other artist's works that inspired me.

Based off a game or a product of your own genius?
You gotta tell me where you get your motivation man.

I didn't draw this, so I can't take credit for that part. But this is a figure from the up coming graphic novel "CannonBusters", created by :iconlesean: .

I'm not entirely sure what it's about. I mean it's like a Steampunk Western sorta, some kind of epic journey, and there's magic involved. There used to be a website, cannonbusters.com, but I think that's down.
Just head over to :iconlesean: and dig through his gallery and journal for more info.

Cheers!

hahha.... i've been wanting to colour lesean's work for a while now.... i even asked his permission!! haven't got round to it yet tho cos i've been having a bit of trouble with his sketchy outlines... but somehow you've made it work!!! aaahh.. i'm envious... :)

Well... I never asked for his permission, to be honest. I did at one point for a different drawing, but never got an answer. That's something you have to come to expect from professional artists, because they're busy as hell. If they'd answer every e-mail asking for permission, they'd never get done.

So my general rule of thumb is that I don't ask (unless I know them personally, or I know how to reach them with a guarantee I'll get an answer), but I make triple sure that I give them appropriate credit, when and wherever I post.

that's interesting... i actually got refused once i think.. or clarified which ones i can/not colour (for other artists)... i asked lesean on DA and he answered me... to tell u the truth.. i never knew he was a professional... hahaha... i'm actually beginning to notice that some of my fav artists are professionals... it's funny... but cool at the same time..
