I'm really into playing about with comicbook clipart of late. I have been enjoying colouring in on my machine.

You can follow along using 'real' media using similar principles.

There are a lot of pics in this post, but its an easy read.

So I like this lady. She looks sassy and quite gorgeous. She's very tiny. I make an A4 document at 300dpi so she will print nice.

Make her big.

Erase the speech bubble, and frame. Grab a page like this to colour yourself.

She's got red hair. I am using a paintbrush with wet edges and painting behind her.

On with the face. Double swipe along the cheekbones and knuckles etc for depth. A graphic like this is great for beginner 'colour in-ners' - see the wee lines I'm talking about? Just a swipe along those.

Ooooh, lime green jacket.

Isolate her. She's now stand-alone and ready to be popped into anything I make later on. I haven't finished playing with her yet. She looks a little lonely there in nowhere land.

Add a background - the choosing of one was probably the most time consuming thing of all in this exercise. Grab a page like this to colour yourself. Grab a page with just the building on it here.

Colour in the tree.

Make a start on the buildings and ground.

Windows and ledges.

Darken up the background for more definition.

Add some highlights.

Refining - last minute touches here and there. Okay - I want her in my book, that's a page.

It could do for a cool retro card that seems to be the all the rage right now. She's waving that finger about - kind of bossy-like. How about a sassy kind of inspirational quote? Yeah alright. :)

Wanted to try blue hair.
