Suicide Squad #1 Cover Step by Step Part 2 Color

Here's a look at how we made the cover-

So this is what the art looks like before I start coloring!


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 just colored the Harley Quinn #1 cover so just grabbed colors from that for the flats.

Flats done - ready to roll!

Initial colors 

I put my painterly "Leyendecker" background first and switch Joker to a more subtle purple.

Initial Rough In

I colored this on my Cintiq 22 HD using Photoshop CS3 .


I did a lot of coloring at this stage - adding the  lights and darks on all areas of the art.

Used the Pencil tool at this point.

Playing the background

Coloring Line Art

At this point I like to color the line art... 

Line Art Detail

I begin coloring the Hair and Flesh Line Art

Then I switch the background one final time and darken up the values on Joker and render Harley's outfit a bit!

Time to work on the new trademark Harley Hair!

And voila - done!
