Together is better
In this gallery you can see the images made in collaboration with other artists and most of them are really well-known names in the international comics business.
My participation in these cases concerns the COLORING.
You can see that sometimes, I used digital coloring (as is usually used in comics), other times a traditional pictorial coloring.
The reasons for the creation of these images are many:
Coloring at the request of customers or simply as a tribute to an images that I found beautiful and stimulating. It is a very important a part of my artistic sensitivity and all the work done as a colorist, some as "tributes" to artists, to published official collaborations, make me deeply proud.
Hope you like it!
Clean inks allowed us to work well with heavy techniques such as painting. Although this is a digital coloring it is textured and dynamic. Marco, whom we all know also for his online presence, is a very good Bonelli artist.
A character suitable for getting out of the shadows. A violet light beam and a "cracquelè" effect for this beautiful illustration inked by Francesco.
Paola Del Prete
Enjoyable collaboration with Paola for the variant cover of her "Moles Eternae".
Supergirl from Pasquale's pencil!
The big names continue with this incredible artist. I also asked Alex for permission to apply digital coloring to his Thor. I chose a coloration based on soft lights and shadows, a storm of lightning and atmospheric agents to demonstrate the power of the god of thunder
He is another great name. A Catanese from Etna Comics asked me to complete this inked Thanos. I painted it with acrylics, with the utmost attention, in respect of this famous artist.
Two tables from me was Goran who made this Tex. I searched a lot for the photos of the canyons, and the landscapes of the west to get the colors right. As you can see on the right, the illustration in question has few elements and a lot of white space around them. I tried to respect those elements by adding warmth and strong colors that I love.
In my opinion, Andrea has a great talent. With this coloring, that he did to my Wolverine, he really paid homage to me, because it was the first time that someone colored something of mine. Thanks again, Andrea. Amazing work!
While Emanuel worked in DC, I asked him for permission to color this illustration. It was one of my first digital coloring exercises.
