Holy shit, incredible stuff! Though I expected no less...

Speaking of which MC, have you seen this guy's stuff?

Might inspire you in some way, or give you ideas for techniques. Best of luck.

Speed paintings? The only speedy thing about them was that the frame-rate was increased. That stuff was super detailed and had at least 3 line drawings to start.

The "Speed Painting" aspect wasn't what I was focusing on. I'm talking about the general use of colouring and effects.

Nice, your line art was all shaky and thin but seems you're fixing that with the color job. Hope you add a lot of shine on him when you're done! CHROME THAT FUCKER
And now you have to make a megatron and a Robocop.

That's pretty amazing, though I don't get why these speed-paintings ( aka trace jobs ) are so popular all over the net. Just google and you can find the exact picture of the car ( http://games.fok.nl/showpic/1165581621.2 288.jpg ) and the robot ( close enough

He's got a lot of time on his hands and is obviously an incredibely skilled colorist/painter though.

His torso looks slightly stumpy... almost like a younger version... but it's still awesome

good job on the coloring so far

I've always been a fan, Mindchamber. This is lookin fuckin sweet. You seem to have a knack for painting metal which has always been real tough for me. I can't wait to see the finished piece. GO GO GO GO GO GO!!1

Looking at the drawing and start of the painting, how detailed are you going to go? I mean, will you make it chrome like pox said or keep it a bit cartoony, and make it seem painted more? Either way, I can't wait to see the finished result!

That's great work, MindChamber! Do you draw on paper then colour it in with the computer? I think that's what most comic artists do.

By painter you mean corel painter (enter version here) right??? That program can be a pain in the ass but it all pays off. Masterful brush effects btw. Maybe a highlight for the metal???
