Fol­low­ing on from the flat­ting core skills walk­through in is­sue 105, I’m now go­ing to take you, step by step, through the process of us­ing those flats as a mask to ren­der the fi­nal im­age. How you ren­der your art­work is re­ally up to you. Build­ing tex­tures, us­ing ‘cuts’ (which in­volves se­lect­ing ar­eas and then shad­ing them us­ing var­i­ous in­ten­sity of grad­u­a­tions) or us­ing any of the dozens of other colour­ing tools Manga Stu­dio has, will all re­sult in nicely ren­dered art­work. How­ever, hav­ing a pre-flat­ted page will en­able you to iso­late el­e­ments of the im­age piece by piece, mak­ing colour­ing those el­e­ments much eas­ier. And any­thing that saves you time when cre­at­ing art – comic or other­wise – has to be a good thing!
