Fantastic Four Color by TerryDodson Fantastic Four Color by TerryDodson
Cover art to the DK Ultimate Guide to the Fantastic Four (2005). This is my first published COLOR cover and my first published line knockout/SFX so a lot of learning for me. I kept the coloring very easy by using simply cuts with a little Gradient to polish it off with. Having no background made my job a lot easier and really saved me!

What a great assignment - a chance to draw (and color) the FF!

Colored in Photoshop 5 with a Wacom Intuos Graphics Tablet. Inked by Rachel Dodson.

Great job! I have several of your comics and I live your art. I wish you could put in your art process, I saw some in your gallery sketchs to finished piece and I like that you show that.

Terry I think your line art is great and you and your wife do a great job, and this piece is no exception. But if I may I'd like to offer a suggestion on the coloring. The coloring on both Mr. Fantastic's and Torch's left boots looks unfinished to me. I think it's because there's no darker hues of blue or black on them. It's more noticeable to me on Johnny than Reed. Because the viewer can see his entire leg, the boot looks too much like the same shade of the rest of the costume.

Wow looks great! And once again happy to see more of your colouring work too ! I always wondered how people can colour like that as silly as it sounds but you make it sound rather simple. I might try it sometime. Can't promise I'll be as good but worth a try :D

I colored a lot in Photoshop before my first published piece and I'm still learning stuff everytime I color something. Plus, I have a background in painting so PS just helped me bring that knowledge to comics!

I studied painting for 3 years right before starting to draw comics professionally so I was very happy when I had a chance to teach myself photoshop and be able to do all the things I wanted to do with the colors of my comic work.

this is fantastic Terry, because I imagine all that drawing with my colors, I create all the emotion of the scene already imagining the color and impact, like a small movie..:). but I know a lot of comics colorists working in up to 4 comicsbooks a month, so they get their work and just splash some paint on the art and already sent the job. each page is a great expectation, a big fear. when I get a friend, work is good...:)
I'll study :)..yeah!!!rssr
