The making of a panel of my webcomic, Skin Deep (skindeepcomic.com). Broken up into 3 parts, the third part is coloring!
Coloring starts with a new layer underneath the inks and is colored with a default hardbrush of varying sizes with the size settings set to pen pressure. This is the most tedious part of the process, but it's fun to see the page take shape through color. To give the page a bit of texture, I have two texture layers, a brown paper bag and a moldy piece of yellowed paper, both set to "soft light" with the opacity turned down to somewhere around 40%. It gives the color a little more richness and adds some nice texture.
Elapsed Time: 40 minutes
