They Let Colorist Alex Sinclair Into The DC Comics Art Academy

The DC Comics Art Academy is a group of live art panel done at the DC comics booth during the San Diego Comic Con and filmed for later release on Youtube. Which is what we have here. But unlike most of the ones released so far, this  one is a tutorial on coloring by the great Alex Sinclair. Alex has done a lot of work with Jim Lee, who drew the page he is using for his example from the Suicide Squad book. Having colored comics in the past, I was a bit surprised to see that he was doing the beginning process of the page on an iPad Pro. Normally all the work is done in Photoshop, but this pre-process is relatively new and I'm curious how much time it saves and what the advantages are.
