    Colors by Val Staples (me!) - AKA: The thread of glorious mediocrity!

    Self depreciating humor aside, I'll post some colors from time to time if you're curious to check 'em out.

    I have a bunch to post right now. But afterwards, if I'm as diligent about posting here as I am on my Deviantart account, then that means about 3 images every six months.

    Here's the cover to Hulk 41. I was thrilled to work on Gabriel Hardman's art!

    Sorry about the watermark. I gotta protect my butt and make sure images like this don't end up on bootleg eBay merchandise.

    I like the color pattern of the snake here. It's as if Cringer/Battle Cat was changed into a snake. :-)

    Anyway, here's another! My boy Pixel-Dan Eardley wanted some fun caricature art for his new website, which I'm sure you all visit.
    so he turned to masterful Matt Tyree to draw it up and then I put some hues on it to make 'er pop.
    Enjoy!
