View Full Version : Those All Too Important Reference Images

Don't let the value of reference image escape new users-especially those creating comics. I love the ease of loading in multiple reference images onto the workspace. I use them for character reference, location reference and color reference. In this panel I just completed inking and I want to use the same colors from past panels for his outfit, boots and floor of the room. Artrage allows you to enlarge portions of a reference image and reposition it to focus on a particular area of the picture so even the tiniest area of a past panel can be zoomed in to take a quick color sample (hot key shift+c). You can have multiple reference shots on your workspace, enlarge or reduce any image, slide them to the side....very handy feature at your fingertips.
