Ernie Chan Barbarian

I recently enjoyed spending time with the comic's master Ernie Chan. One of the things we talked about was his interest in learning more about digital coloring. Ernie is computer literate but his chosen usual methods of working are still with traditional media. I took the opportunity to color one of his powerful barbarian images, from the internet, to show him a little of what the newer Photoshop versions can do without destroying the line work. The other concern I had coloring Ernie's piece was strengthening the separation of the groups of elements in the art… the sky, background figures, fallen figure, and the main barbarian.

Ernie is allowing me to post this for folks to see. He can be contacted through his website and he does accept inquires about commissions.

Thanks Ernie.
