First Digital Coloring Wip 2011-08-30 06:41:22 Reply

After toying around with various coloring styles, I think my first real digital coloring job is coming out well done. I am becoming very proud of what I've done so far, but if you guys have any comments or criticism, let me know. Do keep in mind it is far from finished as I still have to clothe the body, work on the folds for the outfit, decide on what clothes to use, what brushes I'll need for the textures of said clothes, etc.

PS: I am beginning to realize it feels rather dark. I really don't want to have to redo it all over again...

you should post your works in the thread :3
it is good so far. It could be refined a bit further, but I'm digging the color usage :)
the shadow under his lip looks more like a soul patch than an actual shadow, so i'm not too sure where you're going with that. otherwise good :D

Well it doesn't look too bad, you're really lacking in a consistent light source though (that light is just bouncing all over place depending upon which body part you look at) and it would probably be better to rough in ALL or MOST of your colors before getting into the finer rendering, but as an experimental piece it seems to have worked out halfway decently.

Pretty thick neck, and kinda dark skin tones. Whether or not that's just the shade of skin, the highlights and lowlights should reflect that too.

look at my pictures
look at pictures I look at

Update #2

The real problem here is that if you are looking at a face dead on (as you appear to be) the eyes should be halfway up the head. They're too low, but the easiest way to fix it will be to take off some of the hair.

Also you might want to get rid of the red outline on top of the lower eyelids- with real eyes you the only red bit would be the lacrimal caruncle in the inner corner of the eye, which is what I assume you're trying to illustrate.

Gah! Good point, though I really don't want to redo the hair... I'll see how I can edit this as best I can, but I can't help but feel I have to redo it. Also regarding the eye thing, his head is tilted down slightly but I see your point. Thank you for your time!

If it's tilted down slightly, you should be able to see the top of the lower lid- it just isn't red.

I know. Fixed it. After I redo the hair, I'll post another update. Hopefully it'll be an improvement over the last version...

Another update. Redone the hair to fix the skull issue (slightly). His head is supposed to be titling down slightly, but I don't think I captured that well. Oh well, moving on with the folds!
