Episode #18 – Comic Book Coloring with Chris Sotomayor

We’ve got a guest once again, as colorist and Comics Experience instructor Chris Sotomayor joins Make Comics to talk about coloring comic books. A colorist is often one of the most important, but overlooked creative elements of comics today. That color is going to be the very first thing your eyes pick up when you look at a comic book page, but there’s a lot more to it than just knowing how to fill in the lines with Photoshop. Although, you should probably know how to use Photoshop. Find out the basics of coloring, and just what it takes. We also talk about some of the really good coloring in today’s comics, and differences in styles we’re seeing today.
