coloring problems
« on: September 19, 2004, 01:15:15 pm »
Okay here's the deal basically I'm not very versed if you will in coloring. I mean I kno how lol but it's the coloring I see that make me wonder just how others did it like disney or any other animated tv series I kno that might be setting my idea's high but what are they using an is it possible to buy those things. I think mainly my problem is practice but I still wonder what they use. lol it sure aint colored pencils or markers i assume computers and if thats the case what programs are available on winxp. even though there hard to work with I've been using a form of gel pens that sorta thick an glossy but I cant find anything that's even close to what they do. Thing is I want practice with those things cause that's what I'm aiming for with college and all.

Okie doke...there are special paints used for animation, if that is what you mean. I think acrylic could probably do in the meantime - you can get solid colours, it's inexpensive and dries easily. You might want to look up a few pages on colour theory as well - I think before anyone can use colour well, they must know how to use black and white well (value and tone, etc). Colours have different relationships to each other, and it's always good to understand that before diving in. HTH, I wasn't quite sure what you were asking.

well, u had the idea I was just curious what they used because I figure besides having the proper training I wanted to use their coloring equipment for personal experience since I'm pretty much stuck on black an white art except for the occasional gel pen stuff I mentioned. I need practice with paints anywayz. Cause even though I had sum in school i wasnt very good.

Whatever you use to do coloring, one big thing you have to learn is layering. Don't be stingy with your art supplies, be they paints, markers, colored pencils or whatever. It's amazing the difference it makes.

I usually color digitally, but I'd love to learn to paint.  I have the opposite problem, I can never draw anything decent to color, but I can color pretty well.

I use Photoshop for digital coloring, but it's pricey.
