Getting ready for the WSU Line to Color workshop, I took the opportunity to document my process of adding color to a line drawing. This was a line drawing done of my nephew's climbing gear. I sketched it while in California and then took a picture of it so I could add color later.
First stage line drawing
Second stage the lights, and colors you want as pure hue.
Third stage, overlay mid values and some darks.
4th stage add darks, shade and tied together with background color and suggestion of shadows
