Flatters are the unsung heroes of comic book coloring!
Flatting is the first step when coloring as a comic book colorist. Most professional colorists hire someone called a flatter to separate the elements on the pages into colors. The colorist can then select those colors with the Magic Wand Tool in Photoshop to quickly change and edit those colors!
Flatting is more of technical process than a creative one. The colors a flatter chooses aren't really important, but the work requires attention to detail in order to be successful. Good, reliable, and flat flatters are always in demand!
In this course, you'll learn how to use the Lasso Tool, Bucket Tool, and Magic Wand to properly flat comic book pages!

Hi! I have been working professionally as a comic book colorist since 2011 and teaching digital coloring online on YouTube since 2013.
I learned about coloring the hard way early on, and I do my best to make sure that no one else has to take the same route I did! I'm still always learning new things and try to bring you guys along with me.
As of 2020, I've colored over a hundred books for publishers such as Image Comics, Vault Comics, Top Cow, IDW, Oni, and many others.
