Lots and lots of flatting today. For those who aren’t lucky enough to have encountered “flatting”, that’s the process of putting flat colours under uncoloured linework. It’s like the first pass before the lighting and detail is put down and is basically the same as doing a colouring book… except not so fun.

So, rather than share the monotony with you, I took a moment to edit down, speed up, and upload the livestream I did late last year. The following video is the exciting part of the colouring of page 15 (the flatting has already been done when this video starts). Hope you enjoy, and feel free to ask questions about technique etc in the video comments, or in the blog comments (full screen in HD is a must if you want to see what’s going on in the layers).

Making a promise about a release date is probably the worst thing I could possibly do at this stage, but let’s throw caution to the wind! I hope to have the next part of The Firelight Isle live either next week or (if colouring these pages is slower than predicted) the week after! I am excite! I hope you are too!
