REVIEW! Courtesy of @TMStash: Action Lab Soars SKYWARD! Our Interview with Creator
Part TWO of our Interview with Creator @JeremyDale: http://t.co/7qy1rcn9cv
it’s amazing what a difference two years can make. I colored Jeremy Dale’s cover for Skyward #1 in April of 2011. This week, I recolored it in advance of its upcoming release through Action Lab this summer. I think… just maybe, I’ve made improvements as a colorist. Just a li’l.
Steve Downer on colors, everyone! :)

Since someone inquired as to my process, here’s a step-by-step of a page for Skyward.
From SKYWARD #1, page 12:
1) a quick, 2.5 x 1 inch scribble of a thumbnail, typically done 9-12 a page. This one is just to make sure the storytelling works, the gestures clear, and the contrast could work. I typically make changes later on if I don’t like a certain panel’s layout, but this is the initial step, working from a script outline.
2) drawn out really fast at 11 x 17 on scrap paper, I blueline a quick image to see how it’ll look on the finished page. I make minor changes at this point before continuing on.
3)Here I’ve dropped the blueline rough on my lightbox and now I’ve drawn the final lines in pencil on the bristol board at 11 x 17, or A3-sized. This is as clean and done as it’s going to get before…
Any other questions? Drop me a line and we’ll get those answered. :)
