Colouring (3:150) in celebration of the return of Free Time

Postby Hai-Etlik on Sat Nov 29, 2003 3:24 am

Classes finaly over. I actualy have free time. It's a very strange sensation, not having to work franticly on some demented assignment that would be hard enough if I didn't have 3 others just as bad all with insane due dates.

In celebration I did a quick, simple colouring.

The gradient fill is smart. But why is it the opposite in the last panel?

Maybe you should ask that Josh. But it makes sense. The scene changes, Roman's statement implies that some time has gone by, and the change of background reinforces that sentiment (analogous to a cut to a different camera location in a movie). The new gradient also brings the focus down to the lower edge of the panel.

What is this "free time" you refer to?

*damns his crappy skills*

How do you stick gradients in the background? All I can do is solid colours...

Not even sure if Hai-Etlik put a gradient there. It's possible that he simply overlaid the existing grayscale gradient with colour. But if you want to do it: select the area you want to fill with the magic wand, then apply a gradient fill to the selection. That's how I'd do it in Photoshop, anyway. If I want to be more diligent I create the selection by tracing the area with a vector path. That allows to overfill the area under the line-art, which is overlaid as a multiplication layer.

BTW, McFS, I like your colouring a lot, rough as it may be. The red background in the third panel is a nice touch.

I use multiple layers and just rectangle select the frame then apply the gradient to the background layer. I remove all the shading including gradients before colouring.,

Sorry, I forgot somone else had done this one allready, I usualy try to avoid duplicating effort like that.
