Black Bolt Inhumans Vs X-Men #1 Cover Step by Step Part 3 Colors

Inhumans Vs X-Men #1 Variant Covers featuring Black Bolt.

By Rachel Dodson and Me.

Out now from Marvel Comics.

And for Part Three, 



The first stage of color is called flats - flatting allows me to choose an area to color at any point throughout the coloring process.


I try to adjust the colors to their medium value or imprimatura - I use this as the starting point for the piece. 


I make all the tiles at this point so I can color "off" them.  

The tiles are done on a separate layer.

Initial Color Rough In

Using the Pencil Tool at 100% to knock those in.

Detail on the rough in.

Coloring Line Art

Starting to color the line art - mostly the face and some of the rim lighting.

Adding reflective lights to using the Pencil at a low %. 

Use the Gradient tool on the figure a bit too


Final Color

Just a couple of tweaks to do - color signature, couple of highlights and clean up tiles.

Off to the Printer!

So I started it here -

Part 1

Part 2
