Lost Kids cover by artmunki Lost Kids cover by artmunki
This one was a treat!
:iconfcagno: commissioned me to throw some colours at this gorgeous cover for a future issue of his Lost Kids book (sorry Felipe, but I can't remember which issue you said - 3 maybe?). The original art is by the one & only :iconnemafronspain:, and a quick glance through my gallery should give you some idea just how fond I am of his lines. Okay, so all those ropes rather did my head in during the flatting stage - I lost count of how many times I exclaimed "rigging's all done!", only to find another bit I'd missed - I thought it was never gonna end! But I finally got there, and I have to say I'm pretty damn pleased with the end result!

anyway, Lost Kids belongs to :iconfcagno: (go give him some love! he's a goodguy!)

colours by me & good ol' aldus potatoscoop

[EDIT] - oops, uploaded the wrong version (we went through a few revisions on this one, see). fixed now!

Damn, it's been a while since I looked at this one - I can't believe how washed-out it looks compared to what I'm doing these days. I think if I was to do this now, it would be a LOT different! ^_^

Epic colour job on this, man. I really love the palette, and how the colours lead the eyes around.

I still think the palette is a little pink, but I'm glad you think it works. Thanks for the comment, and for the +fav!

As a flatter I do understand your pain lol

But the result really payed off - it's beautiful, specially the different light sources /colors. You really did justice to the lines.

Thanks so much! The light sources were a bit more pronounced in some earlier versions, but I'm glad it still reads okay.

Oh, and I just read your journal entry. You're right - you are weird! Flatting does my head in! ;D

Oh, and I gotta get you to link to my stuff more often in future - I've had like 30-odd +favs in the coupla hours since you posted the link with your lines - you're good for business, man! ;D

Wow wow and more wow.
How much do they pay you?
Reply
:iconartmunki:
artmunki Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2011
Oh, that would be telling! A wise artist never discusses the fee with anyone other than the client! ;P I can happily say I was paid promptly on finishing the work, tho. =D

Many thanks for the "wow"s tho! ^_^

I was curious in a more general way than this specifically.
Any time!

Ah, I see. Well, my rough general rates are posted in the journal entry on my profile page, so that should give you a rough idea.

Well, yeah - I live in the UK, so that's the currency I use. There's loads of sites out there to help you convert between currencies, so it shouldn't be hard to figure out.
Are you asking because you'd like to commission me, or just to find out what sort of rates to charge for your own commissions? Either way, I'd be happy to help you out.

I see I see, yes I did.
I was just curious of how it all worked, I'm undecided of what to do about colour.
I really should learn and get Photoshop and all that jazz.

Well, that basics are easy enough to pick up (if you have photoshop of course ^_^ ), and it's always good to be able to add something else to your skillbase.

It's so annoying when it's floating somewhere in your brain, just somewhere behind the bit you can see! My brain does that to me all the time! ^_^
