Rewind – I want to go analog – well, mostly. My scanned keyline will be printed, digitally, onto film. But I can't seem to get through the next step.
Here’s the confusion - I have ink drawings I would like to add color to and screenprint on paper. I’ve read zillions of posts and websites but I am still perplexed about one thing. Let’s say I want a 4-color print and 2 of the colors are not “outlined” by the key line drawing. How the hell can I assure I am drawing the 2 colors in the right place on the film? Do you peeps map the colors out before you create your films? Do you wing it, with no plan, and create the piece as if it is a painting you are doing for the first time? Personally, I feel the need to have a fairly good idea of how the final print will look before I approach the seps. I just don’t get how to translate that whole picture to all of films, by hand. I’m excited to use film pens and rubylith but feel like an idiot cuz I can’t quite get my head around the whole process.
