Nei Ruffino Shares Her Latest Covers – Pencils And Colors

Nei Ruffino has built her name as a colorist and is quite a high demand having worked from DC Comics to Zenescope and gotten to be a regular at coloring J. Scott Campbell but over the last few years she been doing more and more cover work from her own pencils. Now she's gotten work on the new Chaos books from Dynamite and share her original pencils and colors for the first two issues on her facebook page.

I have seen a lot of artists who color their own work and they take shortcuts, mainly defining the shape in pencil and doing most of the work in colors… but here you see Nei does finished pencils before the coloring stage even starts.

You can get the second issue of Chaos with Nei's cover here.
