Transformers : Continuum Cover 03
As with the techniques I developed from the Dead End illustration and the original IDW pitch artwork, I did everything first in gray tones. It's a technique I've long know about, but never had success in bringing out the colors; some testing on my own, and some tips from my buddy, Adi, I finally got it all straightened out.
Another great perk of photoshop, is that I did the gray versions of each character on a separate layer, so when it came time to color, it would be a lot faster to just select each layer, and fill with the base color, and work from that starting point. Also to help with any adjustments in the compostition, pushing things around to tighten things up...
