Wolverine Miller by angryf
After posting a double page spread out of one of my favorite Comics growing up people asked me how I did it.

Here's a overview of what I did and what it takes to recolor something right out of a book.

The Original Book is the Classic Wolverine by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller.  In my opinion one of the best Wolverine stories ever and one of the reasons I wanted to make comics when I was a kid.

Step One

scan or take a picture

I don't have a scanner anymore but I do have a pretty decent DSLR (Nikon 7000).  I actually would use a DSLR shooting in Raw rather then scan an old book.  I can do a lot of corrections in Camera Raw before I even open it in photoshop but you could do all of it in PSD as well.  When bringing it in Camera raw I just set the megapixel to the largest possible and at 600 dpi.


Step two
adjustment and clean up

Here I'm really don't care about color at all...  The goal is to get rid the color with out sacrificing line art. This is where your skills in selections are put to a test.  When your doing this don't forget you can select what you want to keep or delete.  I use layers to multiple the lineart and go into the RGB channels to select color that's harder to select in the full layer.

Step three to Line art

Line art is line art... you need the best you can get and I had to go through and do a little recreation especially in the Text. I didn't bother with some of the lines on the foreground images and just went with it.

Step Four

Flats and Break ups... if you want to learn how to to that find a tutorial online cuz that's a thing in it's self.  For me 75%-90% of the coloring is setting my flat colors.  I may change something on the fly but for the most part this is these are the darkest colors I will use.

Step FIVE the rendering


Now I LOVE the original but it's a product of it's time... and maybe what I've done would be considered over rendering but to each there own.  

My approach to this was just like any book, page, cover I'm doing and that's focus on the STORY not just make the page look pretty. This double page sequence is out of story and a dream sequence.  I wanted to give it a non real look I thought the original use of reds made a lot of sense.  The retro of this part of the story lends to a aged feel.  So I wanted to use TEXTURE and not leave any white on the page.

You are welcome!  If you like my look and ever need reference photos, I would be honored to give some to you from my private collection.  I have thousands that are not posted on dA (that also fully show my face) - everything from classic nudes to highly erotic.  Please let me know your thoughts and keep up the great work!
