Colouring Notes by MattJamesComicArts Colouring Notes by MattJamesComicArts

These are a series of study notes I have put together. It covers study I have done dating back to my University study in the late 1990's. All of it is comic book artist centric (although a lot of the more generic art "rules" like composition etc will hold true for most forms of art). I hope that people can get some use out of these.

Any digital notes are based on Photoshop.

I will update these as I add more notes.

*Update 03/07/2014 - Added more notes about skin colouring, also notes about different colouring techniques, and finding colours for shadows.
*Updated 20/10/2014 - Added some notes about Laura Martin's tips, and some other names about Depth and Story Telling with colour in sequential art.
*Updated 06/11/2014 - Added notes on Drawing Attention to the important elements, and breaking up the planes.
