Too Much Thinking Going On

This was my first attempt at coloring Things Undone. It was a test page synopsis that I made up on the fly. I wanted to see how whacked out, relaxed and anachronistic I could color it without any hard and fast rules. While fun, it also seemed like it would still take longer than I wanted to spend on it.
All told it didn’t really add much to the story.

Okay I’ll admit…it was just too damn time-consuming!

Shane White spent much of his childhood in the Seaway Valley of Northern New York. He recounted much of this in his 2005 graphic novel, North Country. His passion since junior high school has always been comics and sequential art. With the constantly changing tide of the industry he decided to pursue other areas of art to gain a broader spectrum in which to facilitate his comic work. He's been an illustrator, graphic designer, concept artist and storyboard artist, for the film, video game and publishing industry since early 1990. Not until recently has he put all of this experience to use. Last year he co-created a hard science fiction series for Image Comics called, The Overman. He's worked on short stories in books such as Fear Agent, Hawaiian Dick, and Comic Book Tattoo. Shane White lives with his wife Jessica in the sometimes gray Shangri-La of the Northwest where he enjoys art, film and fine food.

  1. Hey Shane I’ve always enjoyed your style. I recently discovered a Photoshop plug-in that saves some time that you might be interested in checking out. I blogged about it yesterday on Dempsey Doodles at, but the direct link for the plugin is:

    I’m not affiliated with Bpelt, I just feel it would be a shame to not see more color fromy ou because of a time-consuming process…

    I think I did try that at one point. And you’re right I probably could have used it for this project since I probably closed the gaps in my inking a lot more than usual. But beyond this…I have another limited color project that will also have fully painted scenes as the story requires. I’m not abandoning full color, as much as warranting when it’s most purposefully used.

    Thanks for the reminder of Bpelt again and for checking out my work.
