In the latest episode of Strip Panel Naked, color artist K. Michael Russell explains why choosing colors for comics is harder than you might think.
When readers think of the people behind the scenes of a comic book, they often think of the writer and the artist. But there’s a whole world of people in different positions working to make a comic look great, feel right, and tell the perfect story—from inkers who define the depth of the comic, to editors who manage an entire comic slate, to the color artist who brings the world into bright, saturated life. This week’s episode of Strip Panel Naked, the mini-comics masterclass, is a conversation between host Hass Otsmane-Elhaou and color artist K. Michael Russell, talking specifically about his color work on IDW’s Judge Dredd #26.
