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
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 -
