The Power Rangers book I colored this summer is out now! "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers Vol. 2: Going Green" can be found on the Papercutz website (and probably comic stores soon). Just in time for the Christmas/Hannukah/holiday season!
Here's a sneak peek at some of my favorite pages! This 2-page spread battle scene took FOREVER to color, but it came out awesome with the rainbow color scheme adding more pizazz. For battle scenes created in Photoshop, the penciler can copy, paste, resize, and rotate all the little army men, but it doesn't really work that way for coloring - you'll spend a lot of time just trying to get the shapes to match up. I tried it both ways, and it's just easier to paint the shapes in like normal.
This is the story Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fans have been waiting over 20 years for—the untold story of the origins of Tommy—the Green Ranger! How did Rita Repulsa choose this teen over others to wage war against the Rangers? This is the only place to find out.
I gotta say, even though Rita Repulsa is the villain, I REALLY LIKE HER! She's so funny and awesome! This is a well written story that even a 30 year old like me can enjoy.
Note to fans: This graphic novel takes place right before the classic Mighty Morphin Power Rangers episode “Green with Evil.”
Coincidentally, I had chosen to color the monster green before I knew the story was to be called "Going Green," referring to Tommy being the future green ranger. But hey, the more green the better!
Coloring water effects are hard! Papercutz had these 2 pages ready for me to color early on, and I spent lots of time playing with layering and gradients and stuff to make the water look believable and cool. Came out pretty good! But then they sent me a lot MORE pages with water (nooooo!).
I'm very excited the new book is out! And this time I colored the WHOLE 50 page story! The last story I colored, Megaforce Vol. 3, was divided into 2 stories, of which I colored one 25 page story.
Please get a copy soon and enjoy!
Another reason to buy online instead of going to a mall. The Bronx Terminal Mall was designed for people with cars, NOT walking. uuuugggghhhh and it was raining hard today too. The thing that confused me the most was the 2 street levels. Upper Manhattan and the lower Bronx had to be built all crazy because the landscape is very rocky and not level. Well, now I know.
