Children’s Book Progress – February 8, 2018

I thought you might be interested to see how a page develops as i color it.

Here’s the page as just inks (digital of course because I’m working in Clip Studio Paint – though I will always call it Manga Studio):

Then I put my color layer on top on the inks and begin to have fun. It always looks like a mess at the end, but I know that’s part of the process.

Here’s the colored page:

After I’m done coloring, I move the colored layer below the ink layer. Watch how things pop:

Isn’t that fun?

Another page down. As of writing this, all pages are sketched (that’s a total of 5 pages) and 3 pages need inked. I am approaching the end.
