Last weak I have started a comic strip in krita, I had just made the final version of the drawing:
Today, I will finish the strip and add colors to it.
Coloring the left arm
The hardest part is to find the good color for the skin, a little help from google image should do the trick. Then I need to color the sleeve, but if I do it directly with the fill tool, I will fill the whole image in white, I need to find all the leaks and block them with brush. And I want the bottom of the sleeve to be darker to simulate a shadow, I will use an other layer for that, this will allow me to precisely adjust the effect. And to finalize the color, I will use the filter tool with the gaussian blur effect, around the border of the color zone.
Coloring the aquarium
The aquarium is a group layer with two parts, one for the bowl, and one for the fish. The fish will be paint in red, while the clown fish is more beautifull, a red fish is easier to draw ;). And for the bowl, we will use two extra layer, one for the color and one for the shadow, to be able to easily adjust opacity.
Coloring the guy
Now it’s up to color the guy, and I will start by once again blocking the leaks.
This time for the window I won’t use an other layer to adjust the transparency, as replacing the color with a new one will be pretty easy with the fill tool.
The building and the landscape
And we will finish by the landscape.
Here is the final results of the work:
And it’s promised, I won’t annoy you again with bande dessinée, well, I will annoy again but for the next release 😉
