Step #10: Coloring Pages for Your Comic Book – 8-Page Challenge #2

Header for Step 10 Colors 8 Page Challenge

Creators, you are making things happen! This is what it is all about.

We are pretty far along with our 8-page comic story. You are one step closer to being a published comic book creator. Give yourself a nice socially distant thumbs up!

In Step 1, you planned your story concept for an 8-Page Story. In Step 2, you broke down your story into a plot. In Step 3, you revised the plot. In Step 4, our artists started creating character sheets. In Step #5, you wrote your script in “full script” format. In Step 7, you roughted out your comic book pages. In Step 8, you pencilled your art. In Step 9, you inked your art. Good stuff.

In Step 10, you’ll be adding adding some glorious colors to your comic art pages. This is when things start to sparkle and pop. It’s almost magical.

To participate in the 8-Page Challenge #2 and be published in our upcoming anthology, you must register for the message boards and place your colored pages in the Step 10 folder in the Forums.

These brilliant colored pages are by Chris Sotomayor. You can learn more about Chris on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. He also teaches coloring at
