Heh, I was asking how you did the lines because I have been trying to get rid of pure black lines in my own comic :3

Anyway, you can dissect my work here.

Anyone can also use it to build more (in case you wish to try and don't feel like playing with the flats)

Pastel… what kind of brush did you use to get the light effect around the moon? It is divine =D

And your hair is awesome as well, I need to get better with highlights like those.

That is very nice of you to lend us the file, hands on is always the best way to learn art!

thanks a bunch looks kinda hard to do. I may just stick with inking and and drawing I will leave the rest to you amazing artist. IF ic ould i would combined all the coloring that was done on this forum to have to ultimate character designed


pastel
If you want to avoid those problems with the lines, james, here's the technique most people use:



-The lineart layer is always on top and set on ‘multiply.’ After you do this, don't touch this layer ever again.

-Make all new layers under the lineart layers and as you can see in the picture, the coloring goes directly under it and doesn't mess with it! The different colors on different layers don't affect each other at all. :D Which is always good.

Here's how I personally did it:



there's a lot XD lol

hopefully they dont get mad at you for posting this up. But this is very pro like. Love the way you colored it. Well I think you Should PQ Awaxx he is bascailly the writer of the story and he is dealing with the artist pick up. Hopefully someone will find interest in my work and will pay us. But for now I have to start form the bottom to work my way up. I have alot more stuff.

You know how there's two size 19 brushes in the first few rows of photoshop? It's the second one. :)

This is what I got done in an hour. ^^ (Means I still haven't finished >.< )

It really was fun to color, but I got so tired near the end, lol. A lot of your line-work competes with coloring. XD I had to erase some lines in the hair because they were crossing into the shading I was doing.




Oh, I cleaned up your picture and used this to color: :)




WOW Pastel you are amazing!!!! How did you clean up the inked scan? I have been trying everything, and it leaves gray muddy traces behind…

n_y_japlander: I just used brightness + contrast. ^^


Anyway, here's the finished product :D

I think this took me 3-4 hours from start to finish.



And a side-by-side comparison so you can see the things I added in the final version~



Backlighting is always fun to do, but soooo time-consuming XD

Um…I'm bringing forth my attempt eventually. Like tomorrow or thursday. It cannot rival with the greatness that is Pastel and all the others, but I would like to take a descent stap at it. My line art isn't pristine enough for me to color like this.

Let me try to post it again.



I guess you could say that my style is more of a simplistic “down to earth” watercolor. I know it pails in comparison to people like Pastel, but I wanted to give it a try.

Aww, I didn't mean to outclass you. XD


Oh, if any of you want to see the photoshop files, I've uploaded them both to a zip file here:

http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=a9f0e493dbc1d6992fb2ca15d7ea42d9e04e75f6e8ebb871

Maybe it'll help if you want to copy certain techniques :D
That's how I learned at least.

Yay! I was actually going to ask about that. I know the theory (known it for years) But I always wanted to see what was behind it, you know.

Well now I know how it is done…doing it is another matter. I kinda liked how my style turned out though. Sure it wasn't three dimensional, but it had more life than my usual style.

I'll probably never be at everyone else's level, but I'm already seeing a bit of improvement. Probably something that I won't end up using…really depends. It will help out a lot with making shadows and highlights, that is for sure.
