Miki and Hip... by AxelMedellin Miki and Hip... by AxelMedellin
Girls and boys, I spent the last week in a franctic search for a coloring style... well, I'm making it up as I go...

This is a page of the upcoming Elephantmen 30. Hip and Miki spend a night in. Oh, man. I'm quite masochistic, I totally enjoy drawing enviroments. And those little things like bottles and ice cubes. I like comics that take you to another world, like those of Ladronn (whose steps I'm following in this particular scene) or Juan Gimenez. Immersive, rich, believable stuff. That's what I'm trying to do from now on.

And yes, I'm a control freak. I love getting to control the final look. I've had excellent colorists so far, but, you know, it's not quite the same...

Oh, and here's an interview where Richard Starkings tells some secrets on the future of the series:

Hope you like it!

I love your soft coloring and your palette. It's so appropriate to the pathos that permeates this series. Well done :)

Well, are you satisfied with the way the colors turned out? To me, they look spiffy; so I'd totally stick with this coloring style...

I love the way you colored this with the lighting. Great choice on it! it looks cool and lonely even though people are there. You get the atmosphere that these two characters don't know one another too well yet. excellent job!
