I've attempted using colored lines in the past, always with some glaringly tacky results. This time, I went about it differently. Instead of coloring the lines first, I did all of my lines in black on different layers (like hair, skin, ect), put down the flats, and adjusted the hue and saturation. For some lines, I had to continue adjusting the color as I put down the shading, because it clashed or just wasn't dark enough.
I realize I should start getting serious about backgrounds, because mine are pretty awful. That'll be something I'll be working on in the upcoming weeks.
Vigilante comic artist, illustrator, and comic craft blogger at www.nattosoup.blogspot.com. I have an MFA from SCAD in Sequential Art, which means I'm highly educated in the art of drawing funny picture books. I specialize in comics aimed at young girls, and enjoy the finer things in life- seinen manga, whiney autobio graphic novels, and science fiction.
