8 Flat­ting the colours

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

The file is con­verted to RGB and the lo­cal colours are painted in as a flat tone on in­di­vid­ual lay­ers (in comics this process is known as flat­ting). Here, the file can grow greatly in size and it’s im­por­tant to la­bel your lay­ers as you go along. For in­stance, on Eva Nine many pieces of her flat­ted colours are on sep­a­rate lay­ers, in­clud­ing her hair, skin, eyes and cloak. This may seem ex­ces­sive at this stage, but it comes in handy when tex­tures, light­ing and shad­ows are added. Sec­tions of line art are also coloured now.
