Benny Jett Characters: Villains

Benny Jett Characters: Villains

Going back through all my old comic drawings for the Benny Jett story, I realized something: the majority of my characters are villains. I created a hero and a sidekick, and then a HUGE array of villains-of-the-week. I'm not sure why, but they're all very interesting. There's: -Killer Queen (more of an anti-hero outside the law instead of a straight-up villain, but she crosses Benny quite a bit) -Dark Peacock Queen (your typical evil monarch... inspired by Anita Pallenberg's Great Tyrant from Barbarella) -Prince Axel of Pluto (he's like Prince Diamond, from Sailor Moon... only darker and maybe a closet cross-dresser) ...That all doesn't

Another reminder...

Another reminder...

I think I need to use thinner lines... Or at least remember to use a thinner brush. It's a problem with me, for whatever reason, but I think it would make my coloring/shading look better. Also I need to: --Use a pressure sensitive opacity brush for layered blocks of shading --Use block shading of a strong color on a multiply layer ON TOP of regular gradual block shading --Use blocks of highlights on skin coloring --Add gradients under/over block shading sometimes... or even sketchy brushes

Reminder to self...

Reminder to self...

I'm realizing now, after I probably should've known, that the best way to color line art or different line areas in PS is to apply a layer of color/gradient (clipping mask) to the line layer below. Doyyyyyy.
