Color Overlay Technique

Color Overlay Technique

The coloring technique for the fifteen years peroid till Den 3: Children of Fire (1987-1988) was developed by Richard Corben. The purpose of the technique was to create brightly colored comics but with a full range of modeling effects, and it had to be faster and less expensive than full color oil painting. It consisted of a four layered overlay for each ink color that is photographed over a continuous tone original artwork. The work was done by the Corben copy camera. [Children of Fire #3 (1988)]

The overlay technique comics were all but ones made by Blue Line, Fully Painted, or Digital Technique.
