The #MakeComics panel series offered by Long Beach Comic Con is a fantastic opportunity for creators to learn new skills or brush up on existing ones. For a few dozen attendees last Saturday, September 17, colorists Beth Sotelo and Brian Miller discussed the techniques of their craft in a “Coloring Like a Pro” panel.
