Now that the Star Trek TNG: Mirror Broken series from IDW has been concluded, I wanted to explain exactly what my involvement was on this series. Yes, I was still coloring art as usual, but it was a distinctly different process than a typical comic book.
Some back information, J.K. Woodward had done painted art for the Free Comic Book Day issue, issue one, and all the covers. However, painting a comic is extremely labor intensive and deadlines on a licensed book like Star Trek can be very tight. So, in order to relieve some of that pressure, J.K. switched to doing ink wash art starting with issue 2 and recommended that I should come on to do the colors.
Since this series had already been established as being painted, I wanted to do my best to keep that look consistent. I’m familiar enough with Adobe Photoshop that I knew I could make J.K.’s ink washes look very close to appearing as if they were still being painted. It may not be an exact match, but close enough that the casual reader wouldn’t find the switch jarring.
Below is a gallery with a brief, step-by-step, explanation of how I treated each page from issue 2-5. Click on each image to enlarge them.
I’m a day late in posting this, but the final chapter of Star Trek The Next Generation: Mirror Broken is now available!
With the newly stolen I.S.S. Enterprise-D caught between the forces of the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance and a trio of Imperial warships, Jean-Luc Picard finds himself in unexpected territory. Which will crack first, his untested vessel, or an untested crew?
