I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to do the art for a comic story I'm writing, and I would really like to paint the colors in a style like Moebius (Jean Giraud). I've read that it's synthetic watercolor. If that's the case, I may just end up attempting traditional watercolors (but also, what's the difference between regular and synthetic?), but I would like to see if there's a digital alternative, since that way I can paint while I'm at work (I work in a computer lab). I have a tablet, although I'm still terrible with it. I plan to do ink lineart and then color it.
I'm not even sure if Moebius does his own colors! If anyone knows otherwise, do tell.
Some examples of Moebius' work, for those that haven't seen it:
Any pointers or tutorials, what program to use etc, would be greatly appreciated.
