Some of you have been telling me "I want more AER HEAD!" I know - I do too! My freelancing has been picking up lately, which is great news for me, but it also means that AER HEAD takes a back seat for a bit. When I was making a page every other week back in the fall, I was also unemployed :/ I wish I could work on AER HEAD full time and somehow get paid for it, but in the meantime, I'll keep trying to find a good balance between work projects and personal projects. But I'm excited to say that I'm getting comic and animation work:
Recently, I became a colorist for Marvel! I'm an assistant to Kyle Baker, who draws some of Marvel's comics. I just colored DeadPool Max #8, which should be out next month. (#1 is shown above. All DeadPool Max characters © Marvel 2011) It's so crazy - I never thought I'd be working for Marvel because our styles are so different. But I can color in any style! Kyle draws in Photoshop and sends me the files, and I do the "flats," which are the solid colors. Then I do some shading, send it to him, and he touches it up with his personal flair. You can see an example of a panel I colored here.
I've also gotten an animation gig, animating the end credits for Heart of a Doll, the film I was an art assistant for (see last post). One thing leads to another :) I'm so glad things are finally starting to come together for my career, after a year of being in NYC. What will the future hold? Only Aeryan knows ;)
