a comic a day for you to see and read

Another thing you can do - after you've followed the tips for general coloring ( filling in the solid black shapes), you can add a new layer and use different settings ( they'll initially be set on 'normal), like 'screen', 'multiply' , 'soft light' , 'shadow' , etc. with these settings you can do things like paint-bucket the entire layer one color and it'll give everything in the image ( or panel) a coherence in color. If you paint bucket orange, everything will have a faint orange glow to it. It'll look like the sun is going down, or something. You can mimick the interior color of a house ain the moring, and then have the panels that take place outdoors look subtly different. Does that make sense? You can adjust the opacity of the entire layer to get what the desired effect. This concept also works with paint-brushing in shadows and stuff like that. You might think It'll look like an ultra-highlighted, crappy mainstream comic, but you can use all these techniques in subtle ways. I do like the grab-bag color schemes you use though.Have you checked out Joann Sfars' comics? Get VAMPIRE LOVES. You'll fucking love it, I promise.He does your kind of coloring the best.
I *have* Vampire Loves! I do like it.I'll try some of your suggestions probably tomorrow, because I am too lazy to try anything new tonight. I wish you were here in person to show me some of these things. You should consider coming for a visit this summer. We'll have a guest bedroom by then.
I would love to. It's hard to get away from everything, as I'm sure you know. I can bring my magic WACOM tablet and do a presentation for you. Nametag required.
