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 was used till 1988 in the most of the (color) comics, but ones made by other techniques (see deeper on other techniques listed above).
