This section is an in depth guidelines for potential flatter hired for this comic.
The original files for all these comic are created in 600 dpi ClipStudioPaint file, but I can export them to Photoshop if that's your preference, either one is not a big deal at all to me.
This is how my ink looks like before I sent it to my flatter, I always have a note accompanying each panel.
And this is how the flat should look like, you only need to fill the color of the characters according to color template of my choosing, I deal with all the background and the little details like tattoo on her myself.
This is another sample of Ink sent before the flat...
80% of the flats for the entire comic are for these two main characters.
The colors need to be an exact color according to this color template, with each color as separate named layers, more details will be explained below.
Majority of the work would be each of the leads on its own in one panel, or the two of them together in one panel.
Once in a while, there will be extras characters, which only need one flat color for blocking the entire character outline.
All flats have to be done in named layers, which naming system I already provided in one file that you can copy paste and use immediately, so you don't need to name the layers manually.
With separate layers, you don't have to have clean cut on every separate elements of the flats at the outlines that separates them, unlike those flats done in one layer for other comic.
My inking rarely shuts all the way in, there will be some holes, especially on the hair, you can see it from the image up above. The flats on the hair does not have to be perfect but it should be good enough to start as a base for me to start fixing it on top of it.
Another work I also need from my hired flatter is to replace the ink color of the characters. I draw everything in black and I'd need you to replace them with these colors. A guideline provided below after these two images.
This is a guideline how to replace the ink color
The flatter I hire would need to be able to flat in separate layers and replace the ink colors according to these guidelines.
Please let me know if you have any other questions!
Thanks you for reading!
