Steve Hamaker, color artist for Jeff Smith, tutorials

Steve Hamaker works on coloring pages for Jeff Smith, and he's amazing at it. He has recently posted the first video in what he plans to be a series of video tutorials on YouTube. It's an informative short with the basics for digitally coloring a traditionally produced comic (i.e., paper and ink). He explains the relationship between the linework, the importance of black and white versus grayscale, and the color, explaining the effectiveness of working in layers. A good intro to coloring in you need a place to start.
