This is a watercolor test I worked on yesterday and today, and there was good and bad with it.
The good was the panels on the right. I wanted to be able to hammer down some underwater color gradations that looked more natural than what I've done in the past, and I think I came close enough that I can stop stressing out about it for the time being.
The bad was the panels on the left. The sky on the left is shit. I keep trying to do a night sky and it just doesn't work. I'm also having problems making colors as vibrant as I want them to be. I'll probably have to do some more trial and error. Maybe I'll put down a gray layer of water color and then put a black layer underneath it on photoshop. Because getting pure pure black without ruing what else is in my scene is going to be tricky. I think I'll try and do more tests like this in weeks to come. Plus, it's making me so damn excited to color my pages. I don't know what my favorite part of making comics is, but coloring is definitely up there.
I'll have more watercolors up this weekend, I'll be working on my postcard image for the IP show. Until then, as always, as was this morning and last night and the night before that....I'l
