COLOR GUIDES

TITLES A-L

 

A full description of What color guide art is.....
Color guides are used in the process in which all comics are colored. The
original black & white art is XEROXED and reduced 65% and then sent to the
books colorist. The XEROXED copy "color guide" is then painted with dyes, markers, and sometimes watercolor by the colorist and sent back to the publisher. At
that point it is approved by the Editor and sent on to the computer seperators, who then translate the color guide into the computer file of the cover/page.

It is usually on 8 1/2" by 11" XEROX paper and is only one of a kind original
color art and really used for the cover or page of the comic. It is by one
of the creative team of artists (in the comic "Colorist XXX XXXXXX ") whose
name appears on the credits page with the rest of the artists.

UNLESS STATED, THE PENCILLER & INKER HAVE NOT WORKED ON THESE PIECES.  IF THE PENCILER AND INKER ARE KNOWN ON A PIECE, THEY MAY BE LISTED NEXT TO THE GUIDE FOR REFERENCE, BUT THIS DOES NOT MEAN THEY HAVE WORKED ON THE GUIDE.
