I’m re-blogging this awesome post by Edwin, because…holy guacamole! That is a LOT OF COMICS!
I’ve been working as a colorist for Skullkickers for just over 3 years now. Our 4th trade is about to come out…That’s 23 issues, about 20 pages per issue…yea…that’s a LOT of hard work and love that has gone into this comic series from the very beginning. Wowzers.
As Edwin says below, I am extremely proud to be a part of this team. Everyone works their hardest and puts in their best to make this comic stand out the way it does. It’s gorgeous, funny, and just all together a good time. And knowing that the fans enjoy it as much as they do makes it all worth while :D
Make sure you check out the list of members that work on this comic below, they all help make Skullkickers possible and are some awesome peoples!

You can check out more of Edwin’s work here.
Did some more work on my Skullkickers piece at lunch again today. Reworked Rex’s hand and gun a little to flesh it out more and make it somewhat clearer. Also slapped in a rough idea for the lighting I want to use down the line.
Jump back one entry to check out the piece pre-lighting :D
Will be placing this one on the ‘like-how-it’s-turning-out-will-hopefully-come-back-to-it -soon’ shelf D:
Have a dose of Skullkicker lunch time doodlin’!
Took a crack at my two favorite characters from SKULLKICKERS, the comic that I’ve been so very fortunate to work on for the past two years! (I be the colorist, yo).
Here we have Rex and Kusia <3 Not much to say beyond that, I think you get the gist. Pic needs a lot of reworking and anatomy fixes…but I like it so far, has a playful feel to it :D Hope to be able to finish this in the future…between work and more work D:
But well, if you have never heard of Skullkickers, you should check it out! You can read the comic for free on Keenspot here, as well as pick up single issues and trades at your local comic shops! :D

HORROR COMIC AWARDS!
Attending Chicago Comic Con This Weekend
Well, the Chicago Comic Con - Wizard World - is just right around the corner. I’ll be attending in the artist alley with some goodies (as well as doing commissions), but probably not as much as I’d like due to the fact that I’ve been so busy. I have not had a chance to go out and get prints made yet…so we’ll see what happens.
I’ll be there supporting SKULLKICKERS, the comic I’ve been coloring for for a little over a year now. I’ll have single comic issues available as well as the trade for sale! So please come by, say high, and pick up a few copies!
EDWIN HUANG, the artist for SKULLKICKERS will be there as well, though at a different table then me. He’ll also have merch available and you can get the comic signed by the both of us!
Here is a map of the floor and where you can find us. I’ll be located at booth #3748, and EDWIN will be at booth #3810
Also, I should have a banner featuring Sayda on it from the image linked HERE so keep an eye out for that as well!
Hope to see you all there!
