Here is a cover coming out in the next week featuring Sela and Baba Yaga from Grimm Fairytales. Probably a Bad Girls cover :-)

I know people will expect this form a guy but what the heck.  Grimm Fairytales has some of the best cover art I have seen and I am not just  referring to the ladies they put on the cover but the attention to detail.  The color scheme.  I.. I don't know what else to say.  The cover art is just F%^&ng Beautiful !!!

I'm curious. How do you first approach a work like this? The details are amazing and complex. Where do you usually start working or does it depend on the piece?

First I try to find the color palette on the flats, to get the idea of where I'm going. Then I almost always paint the skin. This is my favorite part. And then a little bit of this, a little bit of that. The background details usually come last, because this is not at all my favorite part :-) I hope it was helpful :-)

So you do your own flats? I never understood why colorists higher flatters. I guess it makes sense if you're trying to churn out as many pages as possible. Thanks for sharing that group with me. It's a very nice resource.

I used to mostly do flats myself, but now I need to hire a flatter. And the reason is pretty simple - doing flats take almost as much time as doing actual coloring, but it's not creative at all. While doing flats you don't learn how to use colors, how to do shading, new tricks, textures, anything but just mechanical job, polygonal lasso from point a to point b. Why wasting time for it when you can use this time to train your skills? :-)
