Hi-Fi at SDCC 2013

Is it that time of year already? The largest comic-con in the universe is upon us as the comics industry grinds to a halt and makes the annual pilgrimage to San Diego, California for Comic-Con International, or as it is more  commonly referred to, San Diego Comic-Con. Once again Hi-Fi HQ will be at WORLD FAMOUS COMICS booth #5560 (if you are new to SDCC booth #5560 is in the main hall just inside entrance G).

Members of team Hi-Fi will be on hand to sign your favorite comics, review your portfolio, and answer your questions about digital color and iPad art. Hi-Fi is dedicated to art education and to that end we are presenting 2 panels this year:

Painting Comics with the iPad

The iPad has transformed the way you read comics but did you know you can create comic art on it too? See a comic book character come to life as Hi-Fi’s Brian Miller (Wolverine: An Origin Story) and Kristy Miller (Meet the Marvel Superheroes) demonstrate how to paint comics on the iPad. Learn the basic tools and techniques, including which apps work best and how you, too, can transform your iPad into a portable art studio. Q&A session.

Digital Color for Comics

In print or digital comic books need color, but do you know how comic books are colored? Learn about the creative art of comic book coloring as Hi-Fi’s Brian Miller (Batman: The Dark Knight) and Kristy Miller (Spongebob Squarepants) demonstrate the step-by-step transformation of a comic book page from black and white to full color. Learn the basics of flatting, rendering, color holds, and special effects, along with top digital coloring tips. Q&A session follows.
