A really really old page.. by BrianReber A really really old page.. by BrianReber
So I'm cleaning my desk and I stumble across a cd that has one of my very first Marvel gigs on it. Spiderman: Legend of the Spiderclan. As some of you may know this was my first time ever trying to use the cell shading style of rendering. Also, this was the very first time I even attempted to digital paint backgrounds if you can call it that from looking at this.

The story behind me getting this gig was that I was bugging Marvel to get me a coloring gig. CB Cebulski responded to me saying there were no coloring gigs available but he was looking for a digital painter. Desperate for work I told him "I can digital paint also!". Course at the time I had never digital painted or used this cell shade style. A couple hours later I worked up a sample and fooled Skottie and CB enough into letting me finish the issue. This is that sample page.

Thats a great story of how you got the job, it just goes to show that if you need work you can put your mind to a whole load of different things. It turned out really well, I love the first cell and the closeup one too, their both really good. Rain can be evil.

Scott is the shit!!! This was one of the first Graffitti based comics I'd ever seen. Everything was really original and the way you colored it made it really pop out. That's cool to know that was your first work for Marvel. Great Job! I'm very jelous... :worship:

Coloring you work underneath the lineart and use the lineart for your darkest blacks. Digital painting is just like traditional painting in the sense that you work above the lineart using it only as a guideline. The final product of digital painting doesn't contain any of the original linework. Every line that you see on a digital painting was recreated during the painting process.
