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.
-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
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
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.
