A Colorful World

Join the International School of Comics for a journey into the world of digital coloring hosted by Ben Hunzeker. A seasoned professional colorist, Ben Hunzeker’s art has been featured in titles such as Archie Comics, G.I Joe and X-men. Under his guidance, this 10-week course will introduce artists, new and skilled, to the basics and intricate techniques of digital coloring.

The 10-week course will begin on December 12 and end on February 27 with a break on December 26 to celebrate the holiday. From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. every Friday, artists will come together to master a new area of art.

During the first week, students will gain basic knowledge of applications within Photoshop such as basic tools, panels, pallets and print settings. Each week the course will build allowing students to utilize the skills they have learned in previous weeks and develop their own piece of art.

By the end of week 10, students will have a completed portfolio demonstrating their knowledge and comprehensive understanding of digital coloring.
