Why knowing how to color is important.Hey everyone!
So I wanted to take this time to give some insight into coloring and why I feel it is super important for making a comic look good.
Now people who know me know just how much it bothers me when I see bad coloring. As a Artist who has done his own coloring, I find it to be a very important finishing touch. If done wrong/badly, it can really ruin a page or book, in my eyes.
A few things I want to help point out to new colorists.
1.Learn shading and values. How to make figures and environments look 3D should be what you aim for. A good colorist can even use flat colors to make a image seem 3D.
2.Lighting and color schemes. For these I recommend doing a lot of observing. Don't just study from comic colorists, but actually go outside and study the colors around you. Look at the sky and the way the light from the sun hits the objects around you. The colors of the sky and the ambient light that hits a building
10 ways to become a better artistDear, deviantart fellow artists
How to become better at art? How to gain necessary skill and how to stay motivated and inspired?
There are no right, or wrong answers to these questions, as we all are different and we have our own creative journeys - but here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
1. Make art with your heart
Make the art that you enjoy to create. Make what resonates with you, put your heart in it (not literally) and it will show through your artworks.
2. Be consistent
Commit to yourself. Do something daily, even if it's just a sketch. Perhaps, do a study every morning or make speedpaintings. You may not see the progress at first, but you shouldn't get discouraged by that. Not every single one of your artworks has to be a masterpiece and it's totally okay to have a bad drawing every once
