my simple color process by wulfmune my simple color process by wulfmune
okay so here is some stages of working on my latest illustration, as i've gotten a few requests for tutorials. eh i kind of suck at tutorials so this will have to do instead >_<

stage 1- sketches of characters are overlapped with sketch of background. i draw them on separate layers of paper on a light box because it gets rather messy and confusing if i don't. i find it easier to deal with the layout of the room this way.

stage 2- revised cats as per request of commissioner. inked with micron pens. scanned at 600 dpi. cleaned up black and white levels in photoshop and ran a very slight paint daub filter to smooth the edges of lines.

stage 3- i duplicate the line layer and set it on multiply. then i color flat tones on the bottom layer in their "true color"

stage 4- made a new layer grouped on top of the flat colors. using a grey tone, i shade the image and adjust the layer to hard light and lower the opacity.

stage 5- [link]
added a layer for soft blush, hightlights and multiple layers of gradient effects and color for lighting.
