That Color Thread

Postby Viking-Sensei » October 10th, 2007, 3:34 am

Actually, this probably ought to be called the "Return of the Revenge of the Son of the Ghost of That Color Thread".

I was just goofing off and colored Monday's comic... unfortunately, it turned out incredibly well (in my opinion, anyway). This got Impy and I talking, and after a bit of debate, we've decided to restart this thread. So get out your crayons, fire up your photoshops, pull out the spraypaint, and let the rainbows fly!

Here's my handiwork. Enjoys.

Wow... nice, though the saturation is kinda very bright. You did great job on the last panel in particular.

YAY! Jim it's you in Poe Art form! I love it. And you colored the comic, splended. I might poke at photoshop...maybe. I've never colored anything before so it'll probably end in much cursing and fist shaking but hell I'll try anything once (except peppers, they're gross)

Anywho there's my ADD response.

I must say that is very nice. I don't exactly have anything resembling time these days, but this tempts me to attempt a similar colorization myself...

Thanks, Poe. Unfortunately, I've never been that good with saturation... I've got an artist's soul, but a cartoonist's color palate. When I get a few free minutes, I'm going to see if I can't tone it down a smidgen... I also wanna make Sarine's coat/armor/jacket match in both frames.

Wednesday's comic. Also, check out Monday's comic... I desaturified it a little, especially Sarine in the first panel.

Here's my stab at coloring. As you can see, it's Monday's comic (10/15/2007).

the middle panel is kind of odd in so way... that last panel turned out really nice though.

One thing though, the Guard's armor is suppose to be all silver not gold.

They've all been pretty good so far.

Thanks. Yeah, I was trying a graphic, almost completely monochromatic color scheme with that one, so that the introduction of color wouldn't upset the overall ballance of the action and glowing effects. But it did look a little odd, so I did the last pannel a little differently, keeping the bluish glow on everything, but adding in a few more muted colors and tones.

Ah-ha! So they are silver! I thought they were too, but then I looked at Jim's colored pannels and thought he might know something that I didn't. I'll see about tweaking the first and middle pannel again later today.

I'll go back and change it... I just wanted it to be a little visually distinctive, since otherwise it required almost no coloring and just sat there like a blank lump in the middle of the colored page. Also, I decided to do a different color for the main body and the face plate to make it stand out, but when I reversed the order it made it look like he had an organic face (but was severely jaundiced) and not a facemask... so gold armor with silver faceplate it was.

I'm still keeping the red visor slit, I don't care what anybody says.
