Description

They say that the best way to learn a language is to speak it.

Similarly, this is an immersive course.  Rather than breaking the course into individual segments to discuss color theory and the like, we've chosen to take you through a page as it's colored in real time.  

Although we concentrate on Comic Book art, the techniques that you will learn in this course apply to any black and white line-work that you need to transform into colored pieces.

This specific course is aimed at (but not limited to) those of you who don't have access to a Wacom tablet (or the like). We will be using only Photoshop and a Mouse.

Some of the topics that will be covered include:  Setting up your tools, Flatting, Techniques for coloring Objects and Backgrounds, Techniques for coloring Outfits and Skin-tones, Choosing colors, Professional tips. 

As industry professionals, we believe that this course offers something incredibly unique... that is, the philosophies and motivations behind "WHY" we do something.... rather than just "how" to.  

For those of you without previous Photoshop experience, the pace of this course is extremely fast and you will probably have to view it multiple times to make full use of the information.  After all, "repetition is the mother of skill." 

Thanks and happy coloring!!
