What is Color Guide Art?Just like their original art counterpart color guides are a unique, one-of-a-kind, item and a key part in the production process of a comic. Color guides are a copy of the original art that are hand painted or colored by the colorist. The comic artist sometimes adds handwritten notes for changes to be made to mood or tone, which shows how the finished comic artwork evolved through production.
This color guide is then used for the computerized color separations. Some pieces will have color "codes" written on them to depict the actual color used for that part of the page or notes from the colorist to the separators.Others will either not have the codes or they will be on a separate overlay. The dimensions for colorist art are primarily 8.5" X 11". The item "SILVER SURFER #124 ORIGINAL HAND-PAINTED COLOR GUIDE ART ED BENES PAGE 1 SPLASH" is in sale since Friday, February 15, 2019.
