Coloring Oz – Dorothy 4

As I’ve said, I’m dragging out the process of posting these process pieces. At this moment the only pieces actually finished are this one of Dorothy and the earlier one of Scarecrow. While I’m getting these finished I’m also working on a series of full page illustrations for this project and finishing up some other commissions.

Today’s image is the colorized tone layer that sits under the color and gray tone layer. (Sort of anyway. Layers in Photoshop can be “under” or “over” each other so they mask out other layers. They can also be “multiplied” so that the layers combine with each other.) I’ve duplicated the gray tone layer and used the flat colors to colorize it.
