more comic process
So, now I'm moving on to color. I just start anywhere I feel I can handle. I save the hardest, or least enjoyable parts for last. This way I have enough done to motivate me to finish the page. I went straight from the rough into color for the top right drawing. Next I wanted to do the bottom panel. I fixed the head tilt on the right character and worked him out a little more. I also worked out the glove a little more. I'll go straight to color now. When I clean up, I constantly flip back to the under drawing. Every couple of lines I put down, I check back to make sure it's getting better and not worse. I basically just chisel out the shapes a little more and make sure they are working.
I work in photoshop. I keep what I have finished open on the top monitor so I can refer to it. Also, this story was written by Howard Shum.
