X-Men Together - Steps by Artgerm X-Men Together - Steps by Artgerm
sketch (45mins) -> Lineart (1.5hr) -> Grayscale (2hrs) -> Final colouring (3hrs)

All steps done in Painter.

Sometimes I paint in grayscale, sometime not. Depending on the final style I want. But it is relatively easier to get the good tonal values when painting in grayscale. :)

Wow! The process is really impressive. What kind of graphic tablet do you use? Wacom? If yes, Intuos or Cintiq? And do you use watercolor or another tool?

how exactly do you go from greyscale paint stage to the full color stage?
do you lay color underneath the greay scale layer? above?

I've been looking for that answer too, for quite some months actually.

I may be wrong, but I think using a multiply layer over the grayscale will do the trick
