Colour Tutorial, part 1.5

Colour Tutorial, part 1.5

A couple people have asked, so here's the extremely cursory version of how I get "dots" using GIMP. I'll write this up better when school's out, kids. The way I do it involves creating two palettes, one with the 64 R/B/Y colours as their perfect RGB equivalents (“R” = 100% magenta = blue 255, green 0, red 255; R2B = 25% magenta, 100% cyan = red 191, green 0, blue 255; etc.), and one with my custom colours (which I've generated using the same process as in the first tutorial) -- both palettes must have all the colours in the same order! When I've finished colouring an image using my custom palette, I copy the colour layer to a new f

Colouring Tutorial, part one

Colouring Tutorial, part one

Well, I finally took a crack at writing that tutorial I've been talking about for months. The one about colouring in an old-comics style, I mean. Over at my blarg, I've posted the first of what I'm hoping will only be two parts. It doesn't get into halftones at all, so if all you care about is the dots, prepare to be disappointed.

Nightly Nonconformance!

Nightly Nonconformance!

(see: Daily Deviation) Woohoo! An honour, an accolade, a celebration of my stupendousness and unassailable superlativity! Thanks to everyone who came and looked around, double thanks for the all the favourites, and a third helping of thanks to those of you who took the time to comment. I try and stop by peoples' pages as I'm deleting the feedback notifications, but I got flooded from this, so no guarantees. A special flavour of thanks go to y2jenn (https://www.deviantart.com/y2jenn) for the feature. And thanks to the deviantART staff for the site, which really is great, even though I never hesitate to bitch when it irks me. I've recently revived the blog I tried to star

Incredible art Adam! I really feel overwhelmed now.

As I was visiting your gallery I was telling to myself "this has a 70's-80's look and reminds me of José Luis García López!". He's probably my most admired comic artist. Then, somewhere in the comments you mentioned Alberto Breccia! So my impression was not wrong! Breccia had a great influence over García-López as you surely know.

Your figure drawing is stunning, Hopefully I can draw figures like you do in the near future, wish me luck! I will follow your work both here and on your personal website. Greetings from Spain.
