Water effects! How cool are those?? Separating all those bubbles was a pain-in-the-butt... But well worth it, I think. This was also the first ish I worked on after downloading this awesome flatting software, which is a totally must-have for colorists! It has definitely cut down on work time for me!
Speaking of flats, I went with some pretty flat colors underwater - an effect that I would refine more in some later issue of Mega Man.
These were some of the earliest pages I remember seeing in "layout" form when we were gearing up for "Genesis." Truth be told, Patrick's layouts were incredibly detailed - they looked practically like finished pencils! Definitely pick up the "Genesis" hardcover, on sale now - I hear that there are a few "process" extras that show the pages through layouts, pencils, inks/letters and colors!
