Archives Delve Superhero Paper Dolls!

In honor of Monday’s super hero paper doll, I thought it would be fun to show a few of the other Super Hero paper dolls I’ve drawn over the years. Also, I saw Captain Marvel this week and really enjoyed it. I guess I’m just in a super hero mood!

Super Hero Paper Dolls!

An interesting fact about comic books: Before digital printing, comics were printed using four color printing. The colors were yellow, cyan (blue), magenta (red) and black. Every other color was made up of dots of these colors printed in various percentages. This meant there were only about 64 colors that could be used in comic books and, in reality, about half of them in darker shades looked the same in print.  So, choices were often made based on which colors were more easy to print and would stand out. That’s why bold color contrasting combinations (red and blue, green and purple, blue and yellow, ect… ) tend to show up. It was easier to print and  you got better results.

So, I tend to stick to this same principle when I’m designing Super Hero paper dolls. Meanwhile, as some of you probably already figured out, I’m stepping away from a regular schedule. I’ll be updating erratically- ideally three times a week or so, but no promises on that either.

If you want more regular updates, then join us on Patreon where there will be a Friday paper doll or outfit.
