CLUES 2 -Page 1- by kyla79 CLUES 2 -Page 1- by kyla79
page 1 of my second book, the Clues sequel.

So as I said before, I changed my technique: I first color directly the pages entirely with one tone of watercolor, I scan the page and color on top of the watercolor with photoshop.

I hope you'll enjoy!

Asking, Is this an actual series you're making, printing and selling?
kyla79 Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2010

But it is only available in France, Belgium, Switzerland, and french Canada! Oh, and amazon too! :D

Ooh, it's almost like the technique used in Kingdom Come? (By Alex Ross) Except I think I did the overlays in watercolor too. I love the result of it here. :) Wonderful settings too!

Interesting method, but isn't it hard to use watercolors? I don't think that I could manage it...

Lovely art, I said it before and I say it again, your drawings are marvelous! =) Thumbs up!

This is amazing!

I had been watching your blog for a long time, to 'spy' a progress on 'The Clues' and I'm glad that I found You here too. :D

BTW is there any weak artist in France and French-like countries? ['cos Switz' is a half France and half Germany as I've heard] 'cos I'm finding only OUTSTANDING artists right there... :D You all were born with a pencil in hand :D

The style for this comic and the color scheme is awesome. :D I need to start reading this series.
AmbientSounds Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2008
you know, I find those trees to be particularly effective. The whole thing is beautiful, but the trees and they way they are twisting in this kind of almost tortured way is... great? lol. I lost my momentum, sorry.
elviella Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2008

Hi, this is beautiful and i love art and your colouring. I dont want to sound negative, but the last panel, do you think the rain should be facing the opposite direction?

I wish i could be half as good as you are.

aw how I love the atmosphere of your images :) the method you're using to colour is great, it makes the pictures very pleasant to look at.
kneesocks99 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2008
Beautiful as always :)
How's book one selling?
kyla79 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2008
hmm actually, I don't really know... I think it goes ok, not a huge hit but not a total failure either! Average selling I think... But that's only judging by the first details I received, a month ago. Maybe it's doing better than I think, but I have to wait till my publishers send me the details. I'm supposed to receive new info quite soon I think!
Thanks for asking!
kneesocks99 Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2008
Well that's good :) I hope you get the new details soon!
twinsister Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2008

I like the new style. It still holds onto your style of color, yet has a more vibrant, more comic-book look to it

What layer setting do you use to colour over the top? I tried this once with the 'hue' setting and it just all came out so drab and dreary, not at all as awesome as this!
