Comic book style Coloring by PIXEL-Of-DOOM Comic book style Coloring by PIXEL-Of-DOOM
here is the way i do my comic book style coloring. Didn't turn out to the best of my ability but i think it will work for those out there trying to get a handle on it and willing to explore new techniques.
This was made for my friend Lunar-Dollz but everyone is welcome to the knowlege. It is a photoshop ONLY tutorial.
I did the coloring and Michael Turner did the Sketchwork. It was a scan-in and i was told by Mr. Turner himself that all i need to do in order to use his material is mention his name in the credits as well as not try and sell his work. So for all you delete happy deviants out there..be fore warned i have permission to use his art.

Thanks, and enjoy

I took a look at your tutorial today and decided to give it a try. It's wonderfully simple and yet effective! Now I'll be able to color my comic even more efficiently. Thank you so much!

sorry for the late response! Thanks for the kind words, i'm very glad it was helpful to you. I know i struggled for a long time trying to find a style and also tutorials that made any sense for a beginner so i'm happy it's helping other artists out there. Hit me up when you are done coloring your work i'll be glad to give some critique.

oh wow i don't know man, i know i had it archived somewhere...i didn't do it if that's what you are thinking, i believe i googled the sketch but don't worry it's all good, i have permission by Aspen comics that anything i use of Michael turners is okay as long as i'm not making money with it. So i'll check my archive when i get home until then just google michael turner sketch on google or go to comicartcommunity.com and look under his name it may be there

lol, thanks....not sure when that will be though. we'll see.
--any suggestions on what to draw? ---i feel the need to draw, just don't know 'what.'
--gotta do something to compensate you for the color bit you did.

wow thanks for the great comment. I'm glad this tutorial found you well. Hope it helps you out a lot which appearantly it is:)
actually i talked to MT and he said as long as his work is not being sold and we give him credit we can use his work. That goes for anyone i guess.
I see you have sort of a Koi Turnball look to your work. you have a great gallery, you're going on watch! :)

good luck
