Project Description

Illustrate a character in a scene using color

Introduction

  1. Prepare your illustration

    Separate and organize your layers in a way you understand, so we can begin coloring.

Color

  1. Adding color to your scene

    Add color to your scene. Paint different objects with different colors, and adjust them according to your scene's lighting conditions. Try to understand whether each color 'feels' right or not.

Saturation

  1. Adjusting saturation

    Adjust your colors according to light intensity. The darker your scene, the dimmer your colors would be. Don't use pure black unless you really really really have to.

Exposure

  1. Adding glow to bright objects

    Add overexposure in case you have a really intense light in the scene. If you need to make things look really bright, paint them white with colorful glow around. 

Conclusion

  1. Give your work a final pass

    Zoom in, zoom out, and look at the details of your coloring to ensure its realism and accuracy.
