excellent flats and I have a question.  "Screen"..is that the same as "layer?
frostdusk's avatar
No, the layers are where the actual work goes. Think of it like s stack of paper. Each piece of paper is a layer.

Now Screen is a blending mode. You can change each individual layers blending mode to screen or any other style. Think of the same stack of paper. Now remove one sheet but replace it with a piece of tracing paper. Still the same stack and amount of pieces of paper (layers) but one sheet, the tracing paper (Screen) would look different and any art on it would look different.

Hope that helps.

Indeed it does.  But one more question.  After you set your layer to Screen do you play with the opacity at all?
frostdusk's avatar
Not usually. I guess it depends if your using a pressure sensitive tablet. I just usually set the pen at 20% opacity and also set the pen opacity to pressure, so the harder you push the darker (or lighter on a screen layer) the color is.

Now that is just my way of doing it. You could do it the way your saying as well. Color, then change opacity to what you want. It's a perfectly acceptable way of doing it. That's the thing with Photoshop, there are so many different ways to do the same thing, not everyone does it the same as another.

I use a mouse (too poor to afford a tablet) and paintshop pro LOL
But, for the most part the process is the same I think so I can play around with it and see what works.  I'm always trying to learn new ammo to my skill set.
Thanks!

Definitely do a Youtube search. There are all kinds of tutorials out there. Plus of course here on DA, but following a video is easier I think.

hah! man these are the best flats I've ever seen, well prepared! Including a shading pallet is an awsome idea. Nice job!

one helluva pallet you added to that, very nice, I've had my eye on coloring this for a while, but been to lazy, hopefully now others won't have the same issue lol.
frostdusk's avatar
Thanks. That is the same pallet that comes on the included CD for the "Hi Fi Color for Comics" book.

Would love to see a final rendition if you get time.
