Daily Sketch, color blocking


So we were at Wonder-Con and I was watching one of the masters (Jim Lee) at work. I noticed after he laid down a quick rough to position things, he went in and blocked out a lot of the shadows. Here I thought it would be interesting to block out the color and then go back and add some detail. I used the paintbrush tool in Sketchbook set to a low opacity which makes it function more like an art marker. I’ve seen some colorists and artists who use copics do this.

Welcome to my daily sketch blog run primarily from my smartphone. I left a corporate job a few years ago to work in comics and on my Art. Follow me, my foibles and triumphs as I do what it takes to improve my skills and make it in the comic book industry. Hey, it's either that or crying myself to sleep and I think I'm too cheery for that ;)
