Batman: Hush Colour

My colouring treatment of Batman: Hush # 619, page 4.

The ink work, done by Scott Williams, can be seen here, and an example of the original colouring can be seen here.

I went with an older style than the purple-blue of the original, making it darker, and more grey and drab. I've tried to make it look as though it were printed on older comic paper rather than the glossy magazine paper as well. Finally, I added the "blams" (they were also in the final coloured version of the original) and removed the greenish-blue lines seen in the original ink work.

So much better with colour added. Nice sky shading. Looks hand painted, is it corel painter? Nice work.

Thanks. I used Photoshop, actually, with a whole lot of smudging for the highlights. Some things, like the steel girders, clouds, and paper overlay texture are sampled from photos and textures.

Great effect! I love ps smudge tool, its gotten me out of a lot of scrapes. Nice work.

Same here. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Basically, I'd just plop down some colour (like the oranges and yellows for the gunshot light, for example) and smudge it to the contours of the clothing, etc. I made good use of my Bamboo tablet for that project. ;)
