Brief course description

Are you looking to master the art of comic book coloring and learn the secrets, tips, and tricks that can make coloring comics a fun hobby, a part­-time job, or maybe even a career? This beginner course is great place to start!

This course will teach you the basics of comic book coloring with Photoshop – setting up your tools, flatting, rendering, & special effects.

What is a colorist? After the penciller completes the line­art (and many times an inker finishes the pencils with ink), the art is passed to the colorist (or “color artist” as it’s sometimes called). Colorists, like all comic book creators, can work from anywhere in the world. I’ve worked with artists and writers the world over right from my home office. The Internet makes it easy to connect with collaborators worldwide.
