Been dabbling in coloring

Postby NachtcGleiskette » Sun Sep 04, 2011 12:00 am

I decided to try teaching myself how to color. I'm not very good, but it was fun to do :). Take a look!

Drawing: Not by me. Colors: by me. I wish I still knew who drew it. I think I found it on DA. If I figure it out, I will credit!

Great work, actually. I would recommend working a little more on blending a couple of the shadows, but that's about it.

Thanks :). I'm basically self taught, so it's a process.

I'd actually say the opposite and that there's too much blending going on. Good idea of where the highlights should go, but they are all blurry which gives everything a kind of same-y texture. I think it works pretty well on his skin (fuzzy) but I'd go for sharper contrast in the hair and less reflective pants.

I totally agree with you. The hair was a challenge, and I find myself afraid to underblend, so I tend to overblend.
