Douglas Frey goes by the screen name of Darkwaterfrey over on the Deviant Art page and produces some of the most amazingly detailed pieces. If I remember correctly I first stumbled upon Doug’s work while surfing through other people’s friends pages over on Livejournal, where for a long time I maintained a blog and followed others.
I think what probably got my interest the most was his series of Katmandi pictures. I am a HUGE Jack Kirby fan and his comic Kamandi is to this day one of my all time favorite works by him. When I saw Doug doing these pictures with a new take on the character I just had to keep watching in the hope of seeing more. Doug has since gone on to complete a whole story based on Katmandi which he then did a small print run of (Which reminds me, I never got around to ordering a copy of that… Have to get on that!)
The way in which Doug does his coloring is wonderful. In a world over run with digital coloring it is nice to see someone still creating in a good old fashion real medium! Water color is something that I have been playing around with as of late, so I know how hard it is to use. Doug makes it look perfect. He creates a level of excellance in these pages that I dream of reaching!
