Hulk 607 cover  BW to Color by DeanWhite Hulk 607 cover  BW to Color by DeanWhite

The question is what to add to a cover like this. Too much and it takes away from it, but you need to find something to put in the BG. Grad, flat or graphic something has to go there.

The reds on her shoulder alone, nevermind the blood gradient and the diffused Prussian blue of his tat...augh!
POWERFUL Dean White.

I have really noticed your work lately, you manage to really infuse the colors with an organic, almost watercolor feel that I love. Do you work pretty loose to achieve that effect? I am still refining my coloring process but want to retain a more loose feel and definitely get away from gradient style coloring (I use brushes for almost everything). Keep up the good work!

Hey thanks

Sorry for it taking so long to get back to you. Honestly it is whatever works to get the page done so you are happy with it. I have worked really tight and really loose at different times. As you are trying to get comfortable with the loose approach I would suggest starting with a color for the panel and to color key your scenes. Then come back and paint loosely and build up your figures. I also use just brush's in general.

I think you did a fairly decent job with what you had to work with. I like how you blended together the green and yellow blood on the sword blade.

Unfortunately I think the cover image overall is really weak though and no amount of creative coloring is going to make it suddenly kick ass. Skaar's shoulder and upper body area in particular really bug me.

it comes down to you have to do your best no matter what you get. Sometimes it is tough and you just bear down. I can see where you might have problems with the shoulder area, I myself like the cover, not my favorite but it works for me.

What I found most challenging was actually keeping the colors working. Red, Green, Yellow and a dark Blue Gray thrown in for fun, AARRRGGGHHHHH :)

I must admit I have been so busy and I do not get comps of books that I do not work on that a lot of this has just went past me. I have hear good things about the greg pak Hulk but just have not had a chance to read much in the last couple of years But glad you liked it.
