The Goon color test by ChristopherStevens The Goon color test by ChristopherStevens
Finally got around to trying my hand at coloring one of these. Harder than I thought.

With anything I do, there's things I like and things not so much here.

Love the comic. That's why I did this. It was one of the few pieces I did for my own interest in the last few years.

Uh oh..a Photoshop question. To be honest, I don't know the name of it. It's square and it's a built-in PS brush. I set it to dither so I can use it with my tablet...that's about all I know LOL. Sorry. Thanks!

Thank you very much! I'd be thrilled to know that I've been able to inspire someone and I think through DA, that's happened some, so it's a great thing. It looks like this pin up will be in a future issue of The Goon, so if you read the book, be on the lookout:)

Thanks. I tried to go with a palette that was as close to the comic as I could. Didn't quite get it, but I'm glad the vibe is working.
