Join Ben Bishop for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Photoshop: Coloring Comic Book Characters.
- I hope you enjoyed coloring this comic character…with me today and that you actually learned…a few things along the way.…I wanna encourage you to do these steps…on your own as you're working in Photoshop.…Mess around with the layers, try some new effects,…and choose some colors that you wouldn't normally choose.…See what happens, it's the only way to improve.…Until next time.…
Ben takes the characters he created in Drawing Good and Evil Comic Book Characters and adds color, subtle shading, and simple environments with Photoshop. He shows how to prep your illustration and perform color flatting—simple color fills that save professional artists a lot of time. Along the way, Ben explains how to choose and apply color that feels authentic to the characters and environments you are developing.
