After watching the Tron: Uprising 30-minute preview, I decided to try something I’ve never tried before (*gasp!*) in coloring without an outline.
There was an underdrawing obviously but the main coloring was done by blocking in shapes of color. It’s a little hard for me to work on something without having a clear idea of what the finished piece is gonna look like which is why I need that linework (and why airbrushing gives me so much trouble) so it took a bit of time just to figure out how to work this out. I also tried to work with two different light sources (red and blue) which I find easier with more painterly stuff but I find actually harder with cel-shaded stuff. I liked the “blocky” feel of it so I kept blurs and effects to a minimum.
And I can’t draw lightning to save my life…Posted on May 22, 2012 in Comics, Illustration |
