Flats by :icontrinitymathews:

This is only the second time I've used someone elses flats for a picture and again it was an interesting experience.

First off was that they were all on one layer for the girl and for the mask at the back when normally I'd have done them on a separate layer each. I know its not necessary but I find it easier to colour each component of the picture that way. At least TM does the lines as a channel and provides the background as its own layer so that was nice.

Secondly is just the 'connection'; with the picture itself. I find when I'm flatting, even though its a boring job to do, I'm thinking about each part of the picture and planning stuff in my head, making mental notes in my head and generally getting 'into the groove' so to speak. Using another person's flats doesn't allow me to do that.

Nevertheless... here it it is

cheers
Sean

Well done. Love the way she stands out!

Yeah, about the flats. Trust me I'd love to always go to the level of splitting the elements down into foreground and background. Which is what I do when I start to color, to the point that I separate the chacters into their own layers as well sometimes. But I had to start simplifying things for the #Battle-Artist color challenges. There were a lot of newer colorists in the group, and the extra layers tend to get confusing for some. After that I just continued doing it to make it more accessible all around.

Let me know if you need any more flats for practice and I'll see if I can't show you my preferred layout ;)
