I'm just getting into Coloring.  I do appreciate but why start off with your Flats TrinityMathews?
TrinityMathews's avatar
The flats are just a tool to save you some time. You don't have to use them. You can work from the line work directly

Not scary. Fun. ;)

You get to see a lot of other people work on the same piece, and generally it works to inspire you to try new techniques. I jumped up in ability by participating all of last year.

nice as always! I wish I had more patience with flatting. I can do it, but get bored too quickly, and then take even longer because I am bored lol. XD

I look at flats like they're a puzzle, and let that part of my brain have at it.

Though the only thing I don't like about flatting is cleaning up the line work. Smudges, pencil lines, and faint ink lines are my nemisis. I've learned a lot of tricks to get rid of them, but some times you just have to jump in with the eraser tool.

You should just leave the linework as is mate... colourist will always do something to them anyway really! Save yourself the time and effort unless your colouring it (i'm a big believer in only doing what you're job calls/pays for!)
