Dang so this is the biggest file ever, haha.
This is a quick (?) walkthrough of how I did the colors for the most recent page
, using the first panel as an example.
I was going for a more general overview here, more of my thought process than a set of instructions of how to color like I do. Personally I don't think you should color the way I do, I take kind of a long time and anyways, everyone should develop their own style.
If you're one of those people who NEEDS TO KNOW RIGHT NOW what settings and such I use, here is a list for you:
- fill tool
- gradient tool
- default round brush
- default soft brush
- dropper tool
As of March is use Photoshop CS4, and as of last month I use a Wacom Cintiq (before that I was using an Intuos 3)/
I don't use fancy brushes or settings in Photoshop other than messing with opacity and pressure.
And my final color file for this page had these layers:
- Frame + Text
- Soli Shading
- Soli Base Color
- Room Details (several layers flattened into one file)
- Room Shadows
- BaseGoogle Sketchup
, a free and simple 3-D modeling program, is available here
Hope that satisfies your curiosity
