My Comic: Page one colors

I haven't had a lot of posts up on my blog recently, but for once it's not because I've been slacking off! In fact quite the opposite! I have just finished inking, cleaning up and lettering my comic book! And I've just finished laying down the first color pass of the first page! Quite exciting!

I'm just coming off of three weeks of comp time from work and while I slacked off a bit in the first week, I made sure to keep a regular work day for the rest of it and power through to getting my comic book done! So, a lot of days spent scanning, piecing, re-sizing, inking and lettering went into effect.

While all the other things felt like the usual production work, I gotta say: adding letters to my comic made it come to life! It was such a rush to put bubbles and arrange panel flow!

I'm not sure if the final panels' colors are going to be these since I don't know if that color scheme will work for me yet later on in the story. A friend of mine has suggested I do a quick color study on thumbnails of the whole book so I can take a look at how I want the colors to interact. I kinda just plowed into this first page without knowing if these are going to work later on... Anyway, it's a work in progress, hopefully I'll have more in the coming weeks!

I'm also a little paranoid about how my colors look on my screen compared to everyone else's monitors. My Cintiq's colors look like how I'd want them to be, but then my secondary monitor's colors look out of whack. Sigh. The usual stuff I suppose! Anyway, until next post! Good night and God Bless!
