Process Improvement: Topaz Colors & Checklist

May 29, 2020

One of my goals for the next three months is to improve my production processes and trim out, optimize, or batch as much of the work as I can. This will let me produce comics and other fun stuff quicker and with less stress & context switching.

The first improvement is to create a small color chart and checklist that I can import into documents as a layer when I’m drawing or coloring.

Topaz color chart and checklist

This is the easiest way I’ve found to get a consistent palette for coloring imported into SketchBook. The checklist helps me remember to check the things I often miss when drawing Topaz, things that often require me to re-export drawings, which is painful in SketchBook due to its lack of layer groups.
