1000 Chapter 2 panel 1B
I realize it's been a while.  This is from the comic I helped to do the colours on.  
I just updated this panel a bit when we got some printed for CTN last year.

The King of Saiyans
:iconraging-akujiki: did up an intense pencil drawing of Vegeta if he became the king of Saiyans.
I had to try to do a quick take on the colour/atmosphere.

hey thanks a lot!  I have a couple of videos on my twitch, but if you're looking for time lapse stuff or anything, I haven't done those in a while.  If there's something particular you wanted to ask, then by all means. 
Thanks again!

Cool, do you understand optical phenomenons?

Like, light bleedings, halos, diffraction gratings (on dvd surface) etc...
Say if we're to, not simulate it by FX in photoshop... how ddo you paint it, so it looks pretty real?

I noticed your animation backgrounds has some nifty lighting in it...
and i wonder if those things bring realism to it? What do you think? Let me know

Hey yeah I understand some optical phenomenon. 

I mean there are a lot of different effects.  When light bleeds from looking directly at a light source, or overexposure, one thing you can look up is 'color corona' which is a topic that James Gurney talks about.  There's a few methods to go about it, but one technique he posted about recently was making a gradient from the shadows/silhouettes and painting in the sky afterwards with an opaque bright colour. 
gurneyjourney.blogspot.ca/2016…

For some other types of lens flare effects you can definitely look at some 'bokeh' effects.  They're all possible to paint in real life without photoshop.  You'll have to make sure there's enough contrast going from dark to the light source and get the gradation to read nicely.  It's much easier in digital for sure, though haha.

Thanks!  Lighting for realism is one thing.  Lighting for emotion is another.  It's really about staging it so that you have the eyes of the audience going where you want them to go.  It's very possible to use a lighting strategy that isn't realistic at all, but it will feel real because it shows exactly what needs to be focused upon.
