Prospective Colorer #2: C.H. Sinn

Published by at 12:35 pm under Art,Comic Book Art


Here’s the script for the page:


Panel 1. Gary frowns at a prominent sign that says…
WELCOME, VISITORS. DO NOT PROCEED WITHOUT ID TAG– YOU WILL BE SHOT. Fine print: (And/or immolated, irradiated and disintegrated as necessary).

Panel 2. Gary sits down at a chair near the corner. He’s holding a book and briefcase.

Panel 3. He starts reading his book. The title is “Surviving in a New Workplace.”

Panel 4. We’re reading the same page he is. It’s a mushy list of tips for the first day:

  • Show up on time (this is checked off).
  • Introduce yourself to everyone you meet. Don’t forget to rehearse.
  • Practice makes perfect!
  • Remember to deliver a crisp and firm handshake!
  • Visualize your success!

Panel 5. Gary tries rehearsing his introduction.
Note: this should be from the same camera-angle as panels 6-7, where Agent Orange lowers himself upside-down from the ceiling and surprises him from behind. Part of the surprise is that Gary is sitting in a place where he should be able to see anyone coming.
GARY: Hello. Handshake. I’m Gary. I’m very enthusiastic to interview for this accountant position.

Panel 6. Same shot. However, this time, we see Agent Orange upside down right behind Gary. He’s lowering himself down from the ceiling on a rope, ninja-style. Gary does not notice.
GARY: Although I did not investigate any violent crimes at the IRS, I’m a fast learner and I’m eager to take the next step in my career.

Panel 7. Still upside down, Agent Orange taps a claw on Gary’s shoulder. Make Gary look a bit confused to show that he feels it. He’s definitely not expecting a tap given that he’s sitting in a place where people shouldn’t be behind him.

Panel 8. Gary turns around and sees the mutant alligator hanging right behind him.
AGENT ORANGE: Greetings, prospective accountant!

    Mind you, I’ve already chosen Emily as the colorer, but I just wanted people to see one of the other colorers I was considering.

    –I was perturbed by the trenchcoat’s color. Right now, it looks more like something Emma Frost would wear than a wannabe Neo.
    –Most of this looks professional, I think. In particular, I liked the human’s suit, hair and skin. I REALLY like how the human turned out in panel 1.
    –I didn’t make this clear, but I was anticipating that the human would be pasty-white to emphasize that he’s more of an officeworker than an outdoorsy type. Right now, he looks really tan. That’s a bit of a problem for me because tans are associated with physical fitness and exoticness. Neither apply to this character. Please learn from my mistake! Unless you specify a detail to your artist (like the shade of skin you want), you cannot expect to see it.
    –There’s a white halo around the human in panel 3.
    –I would have liked the color of the wall to blend in less with the human’s skin tone. Right now, he sort of disappears into the background, particularly in panels 3, 5, 6 and 7.
    –The reptile had some problems. The shading on the scales seemed a bit weak, and the pinkish eye clashed pretty badly with his green scales. In contrast, Emily aced the reptile.

    I do think that I like Emily’s better. This one does have its fine points, though. I like the coloring of the walls and chairs better in this one than the pastel-y colors of the other. And while tan is not what you were going for, he did do well with the skin tones. All over, though, I say Emily was much better. good choice.

    I like the way he did the scales, and his smooth coloring style more than Emily’s, but her color choice and the way she shaded were better.
    But I’m glad you picked Emily, I feel that her style would fit better on this comic.
