My Painting Process

This is my commentary on how I color my battle maps using Gimp, a free alternative to Photoshop. I focus mostly on the ever-important skill of layer management, and ramble a little about color theory too.

In summary:

  • Isolate your line art
  • Put your colors down on separate layers
  • Put your light and shadow down on their own, top-most color layers
  • Play around with your colors until satisfied.

This is fascinating to see your process… though I admit at one point I think I got motion sick it was moving so fast XD. Very cool! Love seeing in progress videos.
