Collab with CHEEKS by MatteoScalera Collab with CHEEKS by MatteoScalera
hey guys,
this piece is SPECIAL.
The great Sean "Cheeks" Galloway :iconcheeks-74: made this incredible piece for Tales of Avalon, a project I'm working on with my mates :iconalessandromicelli: :icongianmac: :iconurz-rulez:, you can find it here [link]
Also, we decided to do a collaboration, so I tried puttin' some colors on it, using the "no-lines" technique, and this is what came out!

Hope you guys'll like it!

Oh, and thanks a lot again to Sir Galloway for his kindness, I can't thank you enough for this masterpiece, man!!!

CIAO!

Teo

La prima cosa che si vede aprendo la pagine di questa tavola è la figura di Ares (ho letto solo il numero 0 di T.O.A. e non ho ripassato; è Ares quello con la mazza chiodata?)un secondo dopo noto la figura del guardiano di Excalibur in alto a destra, poi, circa mentre sto cliccando su "Aggiungi ai preferiti",noto la figura a sinistra, e mi sorge una domanda: Come fai a fondere i colori in una così delicata armonia, senza far perdere importanza a nessun elemento e contemporaneamente valorizzandone altri grandemente? Il tuo stile, e non parlo solo di quest'opera,è un perfetto compromesso fra realismo e "tonizzazione", freschezza ed equilibrio compositivo, che risalta quì.
In generale, secondo me qui riassumi perfettamente l'essenza della (come direbbe qualche critico snob) tua arte, e Tales Of Avalon è un fumetto così irrazionalmente fantasy e deliziosamente classico...complessivamente, in termini scientifici, spacca.
What do you think?

That's really nice. The colors and gradients make me think of art deco posters; I don't know if this was what you were going for.

how do you get such tight outlines(white) around the characters...is it just a steady hand? If so I'll have to cut back on the coffee a tad bit.

great work.

:iconmatteoscalera:
MatteoScalera Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2009  Professional General Artist
it's really easy, I'll try to explain.
for every character there's a layer with just flat colors.
simply press ctrl and click on the layer icon, in this way you'll select the flats.
then from the top menu, go on "modify-expand" and choose the number of pixels (normally it's 4 or 5)
then create a new layer under the flats and fill the selection with the color you want the line to be.
DONE! :)
