My digital colors suck...

Well, the project I'm currently working on is calling for me to do some coloring. Problem is, I feel like my coloring skills suck and this scares the heck out of me. I want to do a good job as this is a stellar project and should be seen by some mighty influential people.

So I went to Barnes and Noble today and picked up this book:


It's awesome. Very well written and helpful. Not overly technical. I haven't jumped into the lettering section yet but give me time.

I can see what I was doing wrong in some of my earlier attempts. The following drawing is oversaturated, overworked, Overrendered and there are anti alias problems to boot. ( I know what an anti alias problem is now. I could see the problem but didn't know what to call it.)


Let's see how things improve the coming year.

Hi steve It's Pat the canadian Hickster.. Your digital colors are not too shabby I really like your sharp and crisp line so your coloring should also be accordingly so Hence to ban the use of shading using the gradient tool as you probably notice the only use of The gradient prop is on the background of that blue beetle picture the rest is pretty down simple.

Once again i really enjoy your stuff


A la prochaine !
