Colour King...

Couldn't log in for some reason this morning... I think it's the whole switching to a new blogging format that the site is doing. Anyway :) Here's the colour version of Elvis!

this is great!

What do you use to do your color, out of curiosity?

sarah said...

Thanks Pascal! I use a mix of photoshop and painter :) This one is mostly painter.

I love the colors so much!

Hey Sarah -- I was wondering if you have any recommendations for graphic novels I might like to read?

I can't stop staring at this and the sketch version of it. The pose, the lines, the faces.... It's all great.

I would love to see something like a visual step-by-step explanation of how you color your pictures. I really enjoy watching an image unfold bit by bit. :)

Thanks Wintermonkey! And thank you djw1138, I feel like every time I paint, I sort of go about it differently, but I'll try to remember to save out a step-by-step version next time :)
And thanks Jessie too! Let's see... graphic novels... off the top of my head I've really enjoyed reading "Bone" by Jeff Smith, "Daisy Cutter" by Kazu Kabuishi, "Maus" by Art Speigelman and "Persepolis" by Marjane Satrapi. The first two are fun and kind of adventurey with really pretty art... you've maybe read Bone already. And the last two are more serious and have to do with war and family. All are good! Let me know what you think if you read any of them :)
