Coloring comics and designing with color on the LIA Cast!
Is color simple ornamentation in your story or design, or does it carry some expressive or impressionistic storytelling potential of its own? If we accept the latter, then how do you think about color when making a thing, and how do you navigate the various tools (both hardware and software) to most effectively use color?
In this episode of the Lean Into Art Cast we are joined by Owen Jollands, Colorist at Hi-Fi Color Design Studio, who has worked on many comic book titles including Supergirl and Justice League 3000, for a discussion on how thinking hard about color can lead to clarity in your storytelling and design. We'll also explore some of the new coloring technologies available to visual storytellers.
