Superman Comic Art, Color Corrected

Superman Color Corrected


An old SUPERMAN comic art panel, color corrected in Adobe Photoshop.

I duplicate the image into multiple separate layers. I used lasso and pen tools to cut out the images.  I then used auto color, color balance and the paint bucket fill tool to make the image look new.



What is a motion comic?


What IS a “Motion Comic”?  It is a video made of a comic book. It is not full animation, it is not even ‘limited animation’.  It is almost like someone pointed a video camera at comic book panels, edited them together and posted it to youtube. A motion comic is usually accompanied by old-timey radio show style audio. Actors reading the lines, sound effects added in, etc..

In most cases, the original comic book artwork is scanned in to a computer. The art files (drawings) are brought into Adobe Photoshop and the different parts of the line art are seperated into different layers.  The Photoshop layers are then moved and animated in Adobe After Effects.
