I had a lot of fun showing the kiddos how to color with digital media at the 3rd Annual Picture Show last weekend - big thanks to the Carnegie Picture Lab for letting me showcase my work!
The Carnegie Picture Show presented student works form the surrounding public schools and constructed art activities for kids of all ages at the Walla Walla Public Library. I had the pleasure of being able to give a quick demo on how a traditional pen and ink drawing could be colorized digitally. A few attendees got to step up and add their own color picks to the ink drawing as well! (above left and right)
Before we got started, we ran through a generalized list of materials and how they are operated to get to a finished piece. In case you were curious, my first step would be sketching out the initial drawing. This is done on typical sketch paper with graphite. The drawing is then traced over with a light table and inks and scanned into a computer. The scanned item is then colorized with a media tablet through Photoshop until completion is met. Below is a quick video lapse of a pen and ink drawing reaching colored-completion!
