Stump portrait - color by NMRosario Stump portrait - color by NMRosario
Just added some Photoshop colors to the pencil drawing. I'm trying to develop a decent method of adding color, without resorting to inking, while still preserving the integrity of the pencil drawing. Right now I think I've found a decent method involving Hue/Saturation adjustment layers and the Color Range selection tool.

I also developed more of his chest and upper body; but the perspective is creating some issues, so I've cropped out the real problem areas until I can get a decent photo reference.

I've said this before but I will repeat. Your ability to draw muscular male physiques in a way that looks human and fleshy rather than the plasticene look one sees in many comics (and even some live action work) is rare and welcome. The closest equivalent I can think of is Matt Wagner's wonderful work.

While I love the loose, fluid feel in Wagner's work, your work is more detailed and beautiful.

Yep, there's definitely a resemblance. ;)

What's funny is that the first time I ever saw Matt Hughes, I immediately thought, "It's Stump!" :)

Thank you! I've been considering posting a screencap of the file in Photoshop just to share what I've learned and compare notes with other Photoshop users. Maybe someone has a more efficient way to achieving the same results that I could learn from.
