Recently I have been accepted into this organization called ANG-INK (Ang Illustrador ng Kabataan), it was a thrill to get to meet new illustrators and see their work. Seeing that there’s so much talent in our country that we’ve yet to discover. On our day of orientation, they had this little assignment for us, to make our own page for the annual ANG-INK Catalog.

Both exciting and rather challenging, seeing that there was no limit to how one can do one’s page for the catalog. It took me quite some time to figure out how to appropriately show myself thru 1 page. So I did a comic, a short comic of myself.

Even I, was quite pleased when I saw it printed out and ready for submission.

How would YOU promote your own work in a unique way?:)

Coloring Process

A cup of tea, some sliced apples, some nice tunes from Grooveshark. GAME FACE: ON.

COLORING TIME.

I think its time again that i show the coloring process for the comic I am making for a client. And for those helping me color this.Ā (thank you so much without you I’m dead now)

THE CLEAN UP

oh you know what this is. Convert it to Black and White 1st. Then adjust the threshold till the lines are all visible and almost all the specs/dirt is gone. Flatten image. Clean it up using the BRUSH tool colored WHITE.

THE BASE

Why is this so important? Well you can do it your own way, I personally think this can help your work be cleaner. What you do is get the MAGIC WAND and SELECT the FRAMES IN BETWEEN THE PANELS. Now make a NEW LAYER while there is still the selection. Then FILL it with any base color you want.

This way, when you start to color a panel, all you have to do is go to this layer we made and MAGIC WAND the empty panel you will color, then go make a new layer and start coloring. That way, there is no coloring outside the lines, everything is neat, easier for all of us.

THE COLORING

this part is the one i hate and love the most.

color it in baby. add shadows. highlights.

4.

THE CHEAT

ohohoho I’m such a cheater. Well this is how i get my work to look nicer so…THERE. Add the gradients where you think it looks the best. Adjust, experiment, play around with the SOFT LIGHT, HARD LIGHT, OVERLAY, MULTIPLY, LIGHTEN, etc.

THE CHEAT 2

If your’e still not satisfied with what’s in front of you, DO NOT FEAR, add another gradient overlay of a different color (to set the mood even more) then adjust it to SOFT LIGHT or OVERLAY or WHATEVER is best. Then TADA! Your’e done, now repeat process all over again for the 70+ pages to go.

 

have fun coloring~ *snicker*
