The traditional inker was either required to learn Photoshop…or retired altogether. During the mid-late 90’s, a lot of colorists were put out to pasture. New colorists had to learn these techniques:Techniques

  • Underpainting (non-destructive)
  • Smudging (finger painting)
  • Coloring (the name says it all)
  • Blurring (harsh or soft light)
  • Alteration of Opacity (to be or not to be transparent

The finished product must include these items: Three fully colored pieces of comic pages (either cover work or interior paneled pages). You can find this art in the shared folder or on the Internet. All comic work must be school school appropriate. Work located on the server already matches this criteria. Open the file in Photoshop.

  • Lock the black and white illustration layer.
  • Change the black and white illustration layer's blend to "Multiply"
  • Color underneath the black and white drawing using the pen tool (shapes) and layers.
  • Use Blurring, Smudging, Painting, and Cloning to complete the project.
  • Use white or light colors for the area where light impacts your character or background objects
  • Use black or darker colors for the shading/shadowing effect
  • Keep your layers organized in layer folders and by naming them appropriately
  • When you are done coloring your pages (only after you are completely done) save them as .PDF (Portable Document Format) files. Pages that are not saved as PDF will not be considered submitted and therefore will not be graded.
