Craft of Comics: Jamie Grant (Part 1 of 2)

Posted by on August 11th, 2010 at 12:01 AM

Previously in Lees’ “Craft of Comics” video series: Frank Quitely.

Jamie Grant made his first impression in comics with his run on Missionary Man in 2000 A.D. (following on from Frank Quitely, with whom he would make frequent collaborations over the years).  Since then he has become known more as colorist on titles like We3, All-Star Superman (both with Frank Quitely), Hellblazer and Supergirl.

In this two-part video series, he takes us through the digital coloring process and explains his no-nonsense approach to comics art. This first part concerns the preliminary stages of preparing a cover of Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters, why he hates RGB color and how to spot the mistakes in his work.

Tomorrow: the conclusion to “Craft of Comics: Jamie Grant.”
