(SPOILER!! the following contains two unfinished pages of artwork from the upcoming already-classic blockbuster, PERHAPANAUTS ANNUAL #1. they contain no real infiormation or details that might give the story away, but if you're one of those people that would rather not see--and i respect that a lot--then please go no farther. just thought i'd letcha know.)
lots of work to do and i have absolutely no time, but...
you have probably already seen the final version of the cover to PERHAPANAUTS #1 over on craig's blog, and if you haven't--WHY NOT?! you do check out craig's blog now and then, don't you? anyway, if you haven't head on over there and check out the gorgeous hues the boy laid down on it. here's the link (if it'll link...)
if not, please cut and paste this
so with that said, i wouldn't want to overlook the third member of our perhapa-team, the lovely and talented, rico renzi, and tell you once again about the awesome job he's doing with the colors on the book! i'm just blown away whenever he sends 'em over and i wanted to share something with you.
as you may or may not know, doing the colors on the computer involves using various levels and channels and stuff i still don't understand. first you have to lay down the flats and then, choose the right palette, and then hone and tweak what you have to make the magic that rico creates.
and rico is VERY creative!
so when these two pages came in, i thought it was rico taking some artistic license and i dug them so much that it wasn't until later that craig told me, no, that one of the channels wasn't locked in and those weren't the final colors. in these, you can already see the amount of work that rico had put into them, the wonderful choices and the rich textures. again, they're not the final, and rico might get down on me for posting them, but i really loved them so much that i thought i ought to post them.
oh, and i guess they give a little look at what the team will be up to in the annual...
so there ya go.
