The Mad Scientist by Bluesrat The Mad Scientist by Bluesrat
This is Steamy Dalt ([link]), colored.

I'm not sure what to say about it, I suppose. I haven't been able to draw more than a doodle lately, but I had an intense desire to color something, and since Dalt here was the most cooperative with providing a color scheme, he got colored.

I am still working on my coloring style, which you can probably tell focuses heavily on lighting. I used the same technique here as I did with the last few pieces I colored, and if anything I'm loving it more as I get better at it.

A couple of new things here are the smoke and flames from the flying robo-thingie, and the lightning, both of which were spur-of-the-moment attempts to produce an effect that really worked out. The smoke was simply an extremely low-opacity large soft white brush that I scribbled around with, and then highlighted with orange. The lightning, on the other hand, I might actually do a tutorial for after I test it out a bit, as it seems to be a repeatable process.

Thankee! The lighting came out better than I expected, and I feel I have to credit a lot of that to sheer luck. :)

Wow!! :omg: Nearly everything on Dalt lights up!! That so cool! He looks really 3D -- the effect is just excellent. His vest seems to be either glowing or iridescent and it looks really nice. Just lovely work overall.

Woohoo! Thanks. :) I had so much fun coloring him, I'm glad other folks are enjoying him as much.

Yup, he's a very glowy kind of guy. The vest was an accident: the blue light on the gold fabric simply turned out that way.

Oh! <3 *^_^*

Wow! That's... Wow! Incredibly done! I ... there's so much right with that piece! I don't even know where to start! Well done, just... well done!

Is that a phlogiston blade at his hip?

Thank you so much! I had a lot of fun doing this one. Indeed it is a phlogiston blade (seeing as lightsabers are copyrighted ;)).
