I am searching for digital artists that would be interested in adding colors to a comic in progress : St Seiya Avalon Chapter. As it is a fan comics, it is a request for free work. I have devised a technique that would allow every artist to use the same colors. I explain it through a work on an illustration of a character : Monoceros Jabu.
I (DEMauritius) am in charge of the lineart. I work in low resolution (on Gimp) and then go to vector software for final work and scaling. The line is really simple in order to get a « anime » feeling, which will allow for a great deal of details, and which leave a lot of expression to colors.
Colors, speak of the devil, which will be done in a pre-established palette. For now I made this one, but in the future, colors choice will be a team effort. I'm trying to stick to CMYK colors, because I find it easier to get good colors that are not too dark or desaturated.
As you can see, the way color is applied can change greatly from one surface to the other, which enables each artist to put its own « touch » to the work as long as the shades and the lights are OK.
We are primarily a french-speaking team, with a scenarist and one colorist (but we need more people). I can work with an english speaker, even if it will make the work this much more time consuming.
There, I hope that little explanation endears the project to you, and if you don't have the passion to draw, maybe you know of someone that would be interested. Please, don't hesitate to share.
See you soon on Avalon Chapter !
Autodidacte, j'ai longtemps combattu mon propre désir de dessiner.
A présent j'essaie de m'exprimer plus ouvertement et de vivre ma passion pleinement.
Je me suis beaucoup concentré sur la bd et comment raconter une histoire, et pour ce faire j'ai développé maintes compétences qui me permettent aujourd'hui de produire des travaux très variés.
Je vous propose de les découvrir avec moi.
I am a self-taught artist, primarily attracted to comics and storytelling.
I have denied myself my desire for drawing and the lifestyle attached to it for a long time.
Now, I intend to live my artistic life to the fullest.
You're welcome to follow me.
